Reggaeton is a genre of music and dance originating from Cuba and Puerto Rico and it is nowadays the most popular dance style in South and Mid America, especially among the youth. Reggaeton is characterized by strong dynamic fluctuations, polyrhythm and playing with isolation.

Caribbean Party Class offers a party in the Caribbean style! We will enjoy Caribbean music and body movements of soca, dancehall, salsa, reggaeton etc. We will turn the music on, set all the worries aside and just let the rhythm take us along. In the beginning of the class, we will mainly have series of steps straight to the music, after which we will create a longer choreography towards the end of the class. This class will certainly make you sweat!

Elina has worked as a dance artist in ten different countries. Most recently, she worked for one and a half years in an Afro-Caribbean contemporary dance company in Canada. Alongside North America, she has also been able to tour the Caribbean. As a result, multiculturalism is one of the greatest sources of her inspiration and Elina loves holistic, sweaty and animal dance. Her passion is to combine Afro and Western body movements.
Elina is, in her own words, “passionate about sharing the liberating message of the dance that directs us towards the truth”.
