Unlock a few secrets right here, right now!

January 9, 2015

What happens at Club Bachata? Last week we unlocked a few secrets… re-cap here.

This week we welcomed 2015 with a packed dance floor!!! I can’t think of a better way to get back into routine then with dance, it is a tranquil escape we need to re-energise for the next day. This week we felt the music, and danced with Genuine Confidence, Style, Grace and Flair (or tried to!). We focused on improving our single turns, balance and refreshed the importance of focusing on improving your basic step every week. The more you know, the more you realise you don’t know, and this is very true especially with the basic step. Latin dancing is about feeling the music and expressing this feeling by controlling your natural movement… for most of us the first step is to find movement and then learning to control it by feeling. One exercise to try is to repeat the turn pattern you just learnt in class in a stationary position, and feel how your movement and reactions differ, then repeat to music and note the differences. You may find the results very interesting.

To re-cap the moves from this week, I’ve dug up a sneaky clip from the 7:30pm class:

For the 8:30pm class, I have a copy of the demo including freestyle:

Next week we focus on FUNKY MOVES, FOOTWORK and BODYROLLS! For info on our classes, check out https://melbournebachata.com/specialoffer/.
