On Sunday November 16th from 3:15pm – 5:15pm Teddy Olaso, Guest Instructor from United Salseros, will be hosting a workshop for us at Empress Walk on New York Style Cha Cha Cha. The cost of this 2 hour workshop is $35 for TDS students and friends and $30 for helpers and includes entry to the Sunday Social that will follow where we will play some great Cha Cha Cha for you to practice your new moves. Here is a description of the workshop. Registration is available through the website by logging into your profiles.
New York Style Cha-Cha-Cha (not be confused with ballroom version) is one of the few variations of this dance that places a heavy emphasis on musicality and partner-work play. It has both an elegant and funky feel at the same time. In this workshop, proper footwork fundamentals, leading, following and timing will be covered to provide a more comprehensive approach to this workshop. This includes graceful hand/arm movements and use of various parts of the body to accentuate the rhythms of the dance. The class is geared towards more advanced-beginner – intermediate level students and can help familiarize students who are also learning dancing On2. Must have completed level 2 or receive instructor permission to attend.
