DANCE4WATER STYLES

We teach three very different and exciting dances - Cuban salsa, Bachata, and Kizomba. Which ever style you choose, be sure that our teachers will explain to you the fundamentals of the rythm, moves, steps and musicality!

CUBAN SALSA

Cuban salsa is a fun and sociable partner dance. It can be danced either in a couple or in a ’rueda de casino’, a large circle with multiple couples. LA salsa is a fun, flashy and fast paced couple’s dance with lots of spinning and cool tricks. It is danced in a line with dance partners switching places continuously.

BACHATA

Bachata is a sensual partner dance from the Dominican Republic. The basics are simple whilst intricate footwork and smooth turns give the dance flavour.

Kizomba

Kizomba is a mix between Argentinian tango and Angolese culture. At first seen as a party dance, it evolved into more modern styles, such as urban and modern. Come and try its unique mood !
