Salsa dancing has long been a passion of mine.
I am self taught and therefore, come at the subject with a lot of insight into how to make this dance form your own, as opposed to emulating other people, or styles. I have begun teaching Salsa Nights in a format that allows for learning AND practicing and meeting others who are also learning and practicing, so that everyone feels comfortable and has fun in the process.
Partner’s dance is so different from Zumba or Line Dancing and can be a fantastic way to express yourself and have a blast while still getting a great work out!
A typical Salsa Night will start with lots of instruction and demonstration and practice of the basic salsa step and then move on to holds, turns and sequences, all to be pursued at your own pace.
My end goal is to instruct and inspire a whole cadre of salsa dancers and create more places we can all dance!
This is partners dancing done in a ballroom style. No partner is needed to come to class, but you will be partnered up and learn how to either lead or follow. Turns and patterns will be introduced once the basic step is learned.
Using a variety of music, including soul and pop, but NOT country, this is a low impact, repeating pattern that is done in a group. Emphasis is less on exercise and more on FUN and learning a group dance.
Line Dancing is done as a group and we will cover one song per session. No partner or previous experience necessary.
Julie is available for Private Zumba Lessons, Kid’s Birthday Parties, Salsa Dance Instruction and is interested in more Line Dancing Classes, Salsa Classes, and Chair Zumba as facilities become available.
