What we do in the Latin Workout and Technique class
Every Wednesday and Friday morning we meet in a studio in Battersea for a class with Zoltán Szalontay pictured above. We start with a stretch and warmup isolating heads, arms, hips, ribs and learning how to move them correctly.
Then we select a Latin dance from a choice of Cha Cha, Samba, Rumba or Jive and learn a short routine that enables us to concentrate on the correct way to move our bodies including foot placement, arm movement and weight transfer.
Zoltan makes us practice many times over so that we become confident in our understanding of the figures. As well as giving us a thorough workout, this is adding to our knowledge of the dances so that we are not dependent on partners. It is definitely making us into better dancers.
