Salsa Bachata Beach Day
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 13th of September we are bringing the Caribbean to Amsterdam again.
You get to enjoy a full day of Cuban Salsa, Dominican Bachata and Cha-Cha-Chá. Take a swim in between the workshops, enjoy a fresh lunch and let’s get wet 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…

Some dance experience is desirable as all classes will be at intermediate/adv level.

1. Dominican Bachata Footwork
In this class Guïramigos will teach you fun bachata footwork that you can use while dancing by yourself and that you can use in partnerwork later on. Enjoy the playfulness and flow of Dominican Bachata.
2. Cha-Cha-Chá Footwork
Cha-Cha-Chá is another popular Cuban traditional dance style. Its name is due to the characteristic sound created by the friction the dancers’ feet make while dancing on the floor and because the güiro instrument seems to say: cha-cha-chá.
3. Dominican Bachata Partnering
Time to partner up. Learn fun partnerwork with lots of Dominican Swag!
4. Cuban Salsa Partnering
We’re ending the day with Casino (salsa) figures with Cuban flow and styling!
