Warm up this winter with some spicy Latin dancing

Looking for something fun, social and challenging to do while warming up this winter? Why not try Latin Dancing, one of Brisbane's most popular past-times?

Every week thousands of Aussies like you and I flock to Latin dancing events and classes in Brisbane alone. Some of Brisbane's weekly Latin dancing social parties attract hundreds of people of all ages and from all walks of life, from school teacher to pharmacist to university student to labourer. Some have just started learning and some have been dancing for many years.

After a hard day or week of work there is nothing better than getting away from one's troubles and attending a fun dance class and/or just relaxing with some like-minded people with spicy Salsa music pumping. Some Latin dancers say that they enjoy the sense of freedom that dancing affords them. Others report that they enjoy connecting with the music and with other people in a safe, relaxed and fun environment.

Latin dancing can also open up the world for those who love to travel. One needs only to find a Salsa club or group in just about any major city in the world to connect with a network of friends who are always more than happy to help visitors with accommodation and with experiencing the best of the local food and culture. Even if you cannot speak the same language, you can still dance together!

But how do you get started? The best thing to do is find a dance school that provides a fun introductory course that requires no partner nor past experience. You also want that school to offer a progressive syllabus so that, should you choose to continue, you can learn more from qualified instructors via a structured approach that keeps you challenged but never overwhelmed.

Luckily for Brisbane, Dance Culture offers a popular 4-week Introduction to Latin Dancing course that introduces two popular dance styles: Salsa and Brazilian Zouk. This course has been designed for those with no prior dancing experience and is perfect for anyone who thinks that they have "two left feet". It typically attracts 20-30 enrolments by men and women with an age range from 15 to 50 years.

James Quinn-Hawtin, the director of Dance Culture says, "Learning to dance has had a profoundly positive impact on my life and that's why I created a friendly, welcoming and social dance school through which I can share it with others. Our proven teaching method and syllabus has even those with so-called two-left-feet up and dancing basic Salsa by the end of the first class. Our teaching staff make learning Salsa EASY. The hardest steps you'll take are walking through the front door. We know it can be scary but, don't worry, we're lovely!"

Warm up this winter with some spicy Latin dancing! Get started with Dance Culture's 4-week Introduction to Latin Dancing course. Each class is held on Sunday from 4:15pm - 5:45pm (90 minutes) in purpose-built dance studio in Woolloongabba.
