Calling all salsa dancers in Knoxville, Tennessee! Come join us for a fun-filled day of learning how to style your Salsa and Bachata Lady Styling workshop!

Salsa & Bachata Ladies Styling Workshop

This workshop is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced.
In this workshop, Geri Love from "Caliente Dance Company" from Phoenix Arizona will be covering basic styling techniques-including body movement, positioning, and timing that every lady Salsa and Bachata dancer should know, as well as some more advanced moves for those who want to take their dancing to the next level. 
Basic Lady Styling Techniques
One of the most important things to remember when salsa dancing is to always keep your body moving with the flow of the music.

This means that you should be constantly moving your hips, chest, shoulders, arms, wrists, and fingers, even when you are not doing any fancy footwork, while always keeping the music in mind.

You can use your arms to accentuate your hip or foot movements, or you can do different patterns with them.There are endless possibilities! Just make sure that your arms always look graceful and fluid.

Remember, Salsa and Bachata Ladies Styling really means having control of all your individual body parts and being able to move them to the music with ease and a sense of confidence, not only with a partner but also while dancing alone! 
Intermediate Lady Styling Techniques
Once you have mastered the basic styling techniques, it's time to start learning some more complex moves.

One of the most common intermediate salsa moves is the shimmy. To do this move, simply shake your shoulders up and down (or side to side) in a smooth and controlled manner. 

Another popular intermediate move is 'body rolls'. To do this move, start by standing with your feet together and your knees slightly bent.

Then, gradually roll from side to side across your body using the movement of your hips.

This move looks really cool, but it takes a lot of practice to get right!
Advanced Lady Styling Techniques
Once you have mastered the basics, you can start experimenting with more advanced styling techniques.

For example, you can try doing head rolls, spins, or dips.  Spinning is a great way to add some excitement to your dancing, and it also gives you a chance to show off your fancy footwork!

Dips are another great way to add some flair to your dancing. They are also a lot of fun, and they will definitely impress your friends and family!
So if you are anything like I was as a beginner, you have started to learn Salsa or Bachata but have so many questions like:

1) What do I do with my arms?
2) How do I look graceful with my body while dancing?
3) How can I feel the music and move my body in a way that looks natural and elegant on the dance floor? 

Well...if you are asking any of the above questions, this workshop is for you! Come see why our students trust and use these lady styling techniques to gain confidence on and off the dance floor!
