In the world of dance we are used to seeing a lot of ladies styling classes, but sometimes it’s forgotten that men and leaders also have their own unique style and can shine on their own while at the same time leading their partner. This course is for all of you leaders who want to create just that. Your personal style!
I grew up in a part of Dominican Republic called Bonao where bachata is religion. You hear bachata everywhere you go and dance is a natural part of life. I remember dancing bachata at family events, in the streets, in the colmados and just about anywhere there was music playing. In Bonao we really live the music we dance to and every feeling in the song is expressed with our bodies.
There are many ways you can express yourself on the dance floor, not only with your feet and what steps you use, and when I teach I want to pass this on to you. Instead of only teaching steps and figures I also put a lot of focus on the details that help you express yourself and the music, and how to use this while dancing with a partner.
I will give you my secret weapons:
- My favorite basics
- Men turns within the social dance
- Body movement
- Eye contact
- Hand expressions
During these 6 classes divided into 11 videos in my Bachata Men Styling Course I want all of you to learn how to feel comfortable in your own style and to be able to enjoy to the fullest when you’re social dancing. When you social dance, just like the followers, you can create your own personal style interpreting the music and interacting with your partner.
This is your time to shine! Welcome to my Bachata Men Styling Course, bachata con sabor a pueblo!
