The Latin Passion proudly invites you to our Brand New “Bachata Passion Wednesdays Intensive Course”.
This course has been created as a perfect complement for our Monday lessons. Here we target our higher Improver and Intermediate level students to help them to get the necessary skills to reach the Advanced level “in the best shape”. It’s also oriented to students in the Advanced level that feel like that they “left something behind” during their learning process and are looking forward to work on some of those skills again. Developing good Bachata Skills takes time and practise in the right techniques and concepts and this intensive course will be working on all those techniques and concepts such us:
- Body movements and Body Isolations.
- Timing and musical interpretation of learned routines.
- Consolidation of fundamentals for Sensual and Traditional styles.
- Body posture and “dance flavour”.
- Leading and Following.
To teach these concepts and make them happen we will:
- Run lessons in a studio with only 30 spaces for students.
- Students must join the course IN COUPLES (leader-follower).
- Lessons will be taught by Peynao er Bachatero, Pioneer of Sensual Bachata in the UK and UK ambassador of Bachata Paradise (Traditional Bachata Festival in Dominican Republic) with the help of the super talented ladies: Tiffany and Tina (more information about instructors below).
- We will teach all styles of Bachata in Fusion.
- We will have a part of the class where we will work on our body movements and isolations.
- We will have a part of the class where we will work on footwork.
- We will have a long dancing practise to make sure the concepts are understood, check every couple and have time for extra questions.
- We will apply all of these concepts to popular and also new movements & routines.
In Advance: £13 per person
At the door (if there are spaces left): £15 per person
