What you'll do

First we talk a bit about music theory and explain the timing behind the style.
Then we warm up with open steps so that people get more familiar with their own movement.
After, we explain step by step some basic turns.
We wrap up the lesson with partner work.

Throughout the whole experience we're demonstrating and helping individuals and partners.
Other things to note
Come with your dancing shoes ready! Any shoe with a back to it will work just fine, tennis shoes are especially great!
See you on the dance floor!

Isabel- In Puerto Viejo I've been teaching salsa and bachata for a little over a year. I was dance captain of a nationally competing showchoir. I've been dancing Latin rhythms for seven years now throughout Europe, U. S., and Costa Rica.
Camilo- I owed and ran a dance academy in San Jose for two years. I teach Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cumbia (Swing Criollo), Bolero Clasico, y Bolero de Salon and I have been dancing Latin rhythms for eight years. I studied at academies: Son Latinos, Blue Dance, and Corado.
We've participated in Salsa Congresses and learned from world-renowned instructors.

Where you'll be

We do the majority of our classes in the center of town. The hostel is called Hotel Puerto Viejo and very easy to find. Beautiful place with lots of plants and green life.

We also have other locations as possibilities, depending on whats more convenient for the participant.

Fun Fun Fun !!!! Hannah is amazing !!! From the moment we met it was comfortable and fun. Neither one of us had any experience dancing (and he thinks he has no rhythm) but we ended up dancing immediately. She is a great teacher - very patient and easy to follow. You will not regret booking an experience with her.

Camilo was a great teacher. In an hour and a half, we now know enough to practice and start hitting the dance floor

We lucked out and ended up getting a private lesson. We learned so much in that hour and a half! We reviewed the basics in Salsa as well as Bachata and learned quite a few different turns. We took a video of each dance, putting all the steps together. This will help us use these moves when we return home! It was extra special having a lesson with both a male and female instructor. This meant that my husband and I were able to partner with each of them to get a real feel for the dance, on e we had learned the steps.
