Ladies Latin Styling Team
Welcome to our Ladies Latin Styling Team.
Our current in-person classes are based in Belfast, but we also offer opportunites to join our choreography class remotely each term
anyone can join the group at the beginning of a new term.
We meet every Wednesday evening from 7pm to 9.30pm with classes broadcast virtually as well
Our new choreography piece stats or Weds 6th May 2020 and is for 8 weeks, this time we're focusing on a Salsa routine.
There is no requirement to perform, these sessions are about having fun with the girls and improving your own confidence and dance technique.
However, there is an opportunity for those that wish to do demonstrations to do so locally in Belfast, Dublin and in the UK and Spain
Why Ladies Styling ?
If you are a Latin dancer, no matter which your preferred style, you will need to learn to move your body with elegance, grace, energy & flow. Ladies specifically need to master the art of body isolations (moving individual parts of their body at will) and often there isn't sufficient time in a regular class to focus on this, especially with the men present. Therefore we take an opportunity to meet separately and focus on the movement of the lady's body.
Attending regular styling classes provides an excellent opportunity to focus on the mechanics of your body and learn enhanced techniques. Eventually you will be able to translate what you have learnt in the class to the development of your own individual style and creative interpretation with Latin music, especially when dancing solo or doing 'shines'.
What is the difference between the Ladies Latin Styling Team and the 90 min Salsa Blast workshop in Ladies Salsa Styling?
Yes, we do run 90 minute Ladies Salsa Styling workshops as part of the Salsa Blast workshop series. These focus specifically on Salsa styling and look at individual techniques with hips, shoulders, arms, rib cage & so on. They are not routines and we don't have time to look at much footwork.
The Ladies Latin Styling Team works on a routine and is a blend of many styles of Latin dance all rolled into one. You will work on your memory (of the routine) and learn to dance to different styles of music. Also it's a progressive workshop series meaning that each workshop builds on the routine & knowledge gained from the workshop before, and you will be given home work and expected to practice at home in between training sessions.
What will you learn in the Ladies Latin Styling Team workshops?
