Latin Dance

Ballroom, Latin, Salsa and Swing Dance Classes:


Tango is a dramatic, sensual social dance form that originated in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Originally danced frequently by same sex partners, (particularly men,) this smoldering dance is a dance with attitude! The most popular tango dance styles are the Argentine tango and the ballroom tango, often known as American or International Style; we teach ballroom style tango at OUT to Dance because of its clear simplicity, strong steady rhythm, and popularity in ballroom dance venues.

Cha Cha

An exciting, syncopated Latin dance of Cuban origin which originated in the 1950's, the Cha Cha gets its name and character from its distinct repetitive foot rhythm. It's playful and joyful and can be danced to a great variety of popular music, from Roy Orbison in the 50's to the Beatles in the 60's to Santana and some hip hop at the millenium.

Often called the Dance of Love, rhumba is a slow- to medium-tempo Latin American dance of Cuban origin in 4/4 time, which is characterized by sensual and smooth movements, Latin-style hip motion, and an elegant and flirtatious interplay between partners.

Salsa Dance

Salsa is a sexy, funky, fabulous dance that's incredibly popular world-wide. Salsa music is a fusion of traditional African and Cuban and other Latin-American rhythms. For more info, click here.

Merengue Dance

The simplest and most uptempo of the Latin dances, merengue originated in the Dominican Republic. It emphasizes a straight-ahead 8-count rhythm taken with Cuban Motion. Merengue packs the dance floor in Latin clubs and parties because of its simplicity, playfulness, and sexiness, and it can be learned more quickly than any other dance. For more info, click here.

Nightclub Freestyle Dancing

If you feel awkward when faced with a dance opportunity in a club, party, or social event, you can find relief in just one private lesson in club dancing. This is the informal, popular dance where you're not touching your partner, just boogieing freely-- or not so freely, if you're currently feeling like a dork! You'll learn the simplest basics of shifting weight and what you can do with your feet and arms; after a one-hour lesson, you'll have the skills to finally break the ice and get out there and party. You won't be memorizing fancy patterns; you'll be learning some simple, natural movements where you can blend in with the dancing crowd, feel relaxed, and have fun. We offer Nightclub Freestyle Dancing only as a one-hour private lesson. That's all you'll need! Want to get really polished and actually impressive? Join our Hip Hop class or Pop Culture class on Monday nights.

"Anyone who thinks they won't like ballroom dancing should really try one of your Hot Latin Ballroom dance classes; we were blown away. That made for one really fun date night every Monday!"
