Shall We Dance? American Swing and Bachata Dancing Class.

Shall We Dance? American Swing and Bachata Dancing Class.


Please come on Saturday, June 4 at 4 p.m. to the dancing event where you will be able to learn Swing-dancing skills and Bachata dance moves with our American instructor Manny Ongsing. East Coast Swing aka “Jitterbug” is a form of social partner dance. It evolved with swing-band music of the 1940s and the work of the Arthur Murray dance studios. Swing has very simple structure and footwork along with basic moves and styling. This is an easy dance to learn and it is a lot of fun. In addition, we will introduce you to Bachata dance. Bachata is a sultry, heart-pulsing dance step that originated in the Dominican Republic and associated with Bachata music. Bachata is a style of social dance, which is now danced all over the world. The dance consists of three steps with a hip motion, as well as a Cuban hip movement, and a tap on the fourth beat. With a fairly rich yet recent history, Bachata does vary significantly from style to style and area to area, so don’t miss it. You do not necessarily need to bring a partner, as we will rotate partners throughout the class.
