Ladies Latin Styling Team

Belfast Salsa School runs the only Ladies Latin Styling Team in Belfast. This is a recently formed group, started in July 2019.

 

New applications are welcome to join the group.

 

From January 2020 this team will meet every Wednesday evening from 7pm to 8pm

 

We are learning a piece of choreography from Sept 2019 to April 2020.

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 a demonstration 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?

 

Good question!

 

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?

You will learn the following:

  • Body isolations - Shoulders, ribs, hips, pelvis etc and those elusive body rolls!

  • Latin hip action from foot placement & weight change at different tempos

  • Arm Styling - various styles from different Latin dances

  • Improved Posture

  • Control of your body

  • Footwork

  • Dance styles from Salsa, Cha Cha, Boogaloo, Pachanga, Hip-Hop, Rumba and Samba as we fuse them together in different routines

  • How to look sexy & sensual

  • To dance like EVERYBODY is watching you!

How will you improve as a dancer?

  • Your will increase your fitness levels.. these sessions are a sweaty up-beat workout!

You won't need to know all these dance styles, but you need to have danced at least one style of Latin dance.
