Ever heard a Latin beat blasting from a club or restaurant and wished you could join the fun? Learn to step, shimmy, and swing your hips to the hottest mambo and cha-cha beats in town!
Whether you are just beginning or looking to polish your Latin style, Mambo y Màs at the Washington DCJCC is the class for you. If you took the summer LGBTQ Club Latin Dance class, you will learn two new dances which will improve upon the choreography you already know!
The class will cover rhythm, movement, lead-follow, and choreography—concepts applicable to dancers of all levels, from social to competitive. Take your inner Latin hips out in to the open and up to the next level in a fun and friendly LGBTQ setting.
The class will have five sessions. If the class is interested, the teacher will take the whole group to a Latin club the week after the last class so you can use your newly-acquired dance skills in a fun and social setting with the whole group of LGBTQ dancers!
Dancers of all genders, couples, and (of course) single dancers from any dance background or skill level are invited to join the LGBTQ Latin Dance with Rachel Antonoff.
