Why this class is different at Latin Rhythms:

The best lead is a clear lead. Quite frankly, we believe the clearest leads are those who can master the proper technique of their hand and arm tension. So many other studios do not spend one fraction of the appropriate time necessary going into all the important lead-based technique details there actually are. Latin Rhythms focuses on the details because at the end of the day, this is what will make the best dance experience. The technique and details learned in this class are priceless.

This class will prepare you for ALL Salsa, Mambo, and ChaChaCha classes!

Specific Techniques Learned

Why this class is different at Latin Rhythms:

Maricza Valentin is one of the best and most experienced follows on the scene. She has designed a following curriculum using the same techniques she uses herself. A follow’s key to success is to dance as submissively and attentively as possible. Reciprocate the proper tension to your partner; never lose your basic step; and do not over anticipate what your partner is preparing to execute on you. Simply put… just follow.

This class will prepare you for ALL Salsa, Mambo, and ChaChaCha classes!
