Merengue your way down to Holy City Salsa for their new, expanded youth classes for kids ages 4 to 18.
Debuting this spring, the Teen Latin Dance Program will have students ages 11 to 18 learning the basic steps, combos, and principles of leading and following through classic dancing styles like Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue. Dancers can show off their new skills in an optional performance at the end of the semester, as well as a performance at the Cinco de Mayo Festival.
Both classes give children and teens the opportunity to develop social skills, embrace diversity, and build confidence all while having a good time and getting some exercise. But the salsa fun isn’t just for the kids. Holy City Salsa also offers 4 week beginner classes for adults and wedding first dance classes. No dancing experience or partners are required; all you need to bring is some comfy footwear, preferably your boogie shoes, and you’re good to groove.
