It’s all about attitude!
Come along to this Latin-American street session to get down, shake those hips, shimmy those shoulders and work out in la vida loca style.
Our fun, upbeat class is for dancers of all levels. We’ll even introduce Reggae and Dancehall rhythms of Cuba and Jamaica.
This class will be participating in the Dance Base Christmas Shows on the evening of either Monday 11th or Tuesday 12th December, and will be working on a routine for this performance throughout the Autumn term. Participating in the show is optional – you do not need to perform to come and enjoy the class.

Wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Don’t forget your bottle of water!
As we move into the colder months of our changeable Scottish weather, please wear layers to the class to keep sufficiently warm during, as we are still continuing to ensure ventilation in our studios.
