Bailando Kids’ Latin Dance is a fun dance class for children of all levels! We will explore the basic technique of Salsa, Bachata and Cha Cha Cha, later focusing mainly on the Salsa genre.  

We explore footwork, body movement and musicality. Acknowledging the deep historical roots of this genre, the children will also learn about the origins of Salsa.  

These classes are fun, interactive, and full of energy! There will be opportunities to perform at events and competitions for the children who are interested to do so- however there is no pressure to perform.
