Youth Latin classes begin

I'm excited to be working on the Latin dances of ballroom dance for this next series. We'll be doing Rumba, Salsa, Cha Cha and a little Samba. There's still room for more leads ages 7-15, registration is open through April 28th. Wedding season is in full swing and if you're a last minute bride, remember you CAN get it all done by delegating. As of May 1st my Wedding Dance crash course package will be available-contact balorico@gmail.com for more details. I'll see you on the dance floor-Happy Spring Break!

Dance as Prayer

I love it how dance bridges cultures of understanding. Last night, Taiwanese dance company, Cloudgate, poetically reminded us that slower movement and slower pacing requires and helps teach us control,inner strength, release of self...all for moments of visual clarity. So much to take in and apply to dance training and the use of technique for achieving freedom. Amidst the sea of golden rice husks, I couldn't help but think when is dance our practice of prayer? Save the date: Mondays at 8:05pm,starting April 7th, I'm bringing back AfroPeruvian dance. Join us as we use my favorite rhythms (Festejo,Lando and Zamacueca) to get fit, stretch and cross-train to improve "cuban motion." Open level-join us!

Wings to dance

The next Adults Series begins Monday March 3rd. We're taking a break Monday 2/24 in honor of my birthday girl who constantly reminds me we can surpass and do anything...so she gave me wings. . Our children's program is set to begin its Spring series March 7th-SAVE THE DATE! I hope you're all out there practicing your moves and practicing your own dance of life-with wings when you think you can't anymore.
