Do you like to dance to intercultural music? Then take part in our intercultural dance sessions and learn the basics of salsa, breaking (break dance) and oriental dancing (belly dance). You don't need any prior knowledge or experience with these dances.
We offer regular salsa and bachata dance sessions every Friday from 7pm to 9pm.
What is Salsa?
Salsa is a danceable music genre that emerged from the fusion of Cuban Son and other Caribbean and American music styles such as jazz and blues. There are many variations of Salsa, as new instruments have developed in each Latin American country over the years. During this workshop, we will learn the basic steps and figures of Cuban Salsa. Steps like 'Dile que no,' 'Guapea,' and 'Enchufa' form the foundation for the Casino dance style. It's important for each participant to recognize the rhythm and tempo of the music before progressing to more advanced figures and steps, which are reflected in the movements of the legs and body.
What is Breaking?
Breaking is a hip-hop dance that originated in the United States (Bronx, New York) and is practiced by so many people today that it has been included as an Olympic sport for Paris 2024. Breaking primarily requires musicality and movement coordination. During the Breaking workshop, you will learn the musical structure of Breaking. For this purpose, various basic steps will be demonstrated, including Toprock, Footwork (steps primarily executed with the legs), Go Down (transition step from Toprock to Footwork), and some fundamental Freezes (holding a standing position for a few seconds).
What is Belly Dancing?
Belly dance, also known as oriental dance, is one of the oldest dance forms originating from the Middle East since antiquity. Depending on the country and region, it has taken on many different forms, both in terms of costumes and dance style. During the Belly Dance workshop, you will dance to oriental rhythms and learn the basics of belly dance. No prior knowledge or dance experience is required.
