THE CARIBBEAN COMES TO YOU!
Are you also sad that your holiday to that tropical destination got cancelled this year? No more tears! Sunday the 19th of July we are bringing the Caribbean to Amsterdam.
You get to enjoy a full day of Cuban Salsa and Dominican Bachata. Take a swim in between the workshops, enjoy a fresh lunch and let’s get wet during the animations on the beach! Come and dance, learn, swim and have fun at Strand Blijburg.
The workshops are taught by very experienced dancers and teachers. Yohan & Elaine will make sure you feel like you are in Cuba and Güiramigos DanceCompany will take you to the Dominican Republic…

We will give you a warm welcome.
In this class Güiramigos will teach you fun bachata footwork that you can use while dancing by yourself and that you can use in partnerwork. Enjoy the playfulness and flow of Dominican Bachata.
In this class you’ll learn how to style up your salsa by mixing Cuban traditional movements like Rumba, Afro, Son, Mambo and footwork. It also contains musicality: the mood of the song will be translated into movements and Yohan & Elaine will share how you can catch accents in the salsa music Cuban style.
Enjoy a fresh lunch, have some nice conversations with the other dancers and go for a swim.
You will have the option to pre-order lunch for €9,- when buying the ticket.
In this class Güiramigos will teach you fun bachata footwork in combination with the music. Learn to play with the music, use the different instruments in Bachata and become a more creative Bachatero.
Shake it all out in our last workshop of the day!! We’re going to have fun with Reggaeton moves “a lo Cubano” taught by Yohan & Elaine.
We will end the day with some nice Latin Music and time for drinks. Get to know each other and have some nice conversations.
