Simon here from Danza Loca with some dancing updates, including:
1) Preparation for DANZA RAMA performance teams. New classes!
2) New BOKWA FITNESS classes
3) New ZUMBA term, and teachers!
DANZA RAMA is coming! November 9th,will be the third installment of our hugely successful Danza Rama which keeps getting better each year!
For those who’ve missed out: “DANZA RAMA” is Danza Loca’s annual ‘formal’ ball, inviting all our fitness and dancing students to get dressed to impress and come together to make our biggest party for the year. It will be an amazing night of dancing and partying, including competitions and mind-blowing professional and amateur performances, with a delicious gourmet buffet dinner!
It’s now time to start preparing some of the performance teams who will share the spotlight this year:
Rehearsals/Training for our DANZA RAMA Salsa Rueda Performance Team starts Monday 10 June, at the Loftus Street Centre Leederville, (Upper Function Room) 7:30-9:00pm. All students are welcome to come and learn exciting Cuban techniques and steps that will be incorporated into our choreography. It is recommended for students who have already passed Beginners level 2C.
Classes in June will be open to casual attendance ($23, or you can use a passcard), but we will need your committed weekly attendance from July onwards. Inquire to the studio, (Simon) or our designated team captain, Victor Paredes.
Trained in Havana, Cuba, our Cuban Folkloric specialist Garibaldi Deslisle is excited to present an opportunity for Perth dancers to discover and develop intricate movements and Afro-Cuban flavor through Dances of the Orisha (Cuban Deities).
We hope that you will enjoy this rare opportunity, and we know you’ll enjoy working with Gary!
Classes will be Saturdays 9-10am at Royal Park-(immediately following ZUMBA®)- starting from June 15th.
All welcome. Pricing will be same as our regular Salsa classes.
Hip Hop/ “Popping”:
Salsa teacher Joakim Noyer (from France) is keen to build a performance crew in HIS favourite dance style: HIP HOP, especially “Popping”- known to us oldies as “the robot”, “moonwalking” etc- but with Joakim’s new-school feel. Everybody will be starting from scratch, so beginners are welcome. Our first class will be Monday 10 June, 9pm -10pm, at Loftus St Centre, following Salsa Performance Grp.
Pricing will be same as our regular Salsa classes.
ZUMBA® et al:
Again we will open up the DANZARAMA CHOREOGRAPHY CHALLENGE! We will give the winning team (of 3-8 entrants) 3 months of FREE ZUMBA CLASSES. It’s all up to YOU, to cut your music, choreograph your own dance (not fitness) routine and rehearse your teammates. You will need to register your team thru our office (ph 0402 092 900) by October 1st, but you should start rehearsal and choreography SOON!
Lots of ways to get yourself on stage this DANZA RAMA! But just in case performing is NOT your thing, there are still plenty of ways to get involved in the PARTY this year, including friendly social dance competitions- Keep November 9th free, and keep your eyes on your inbox!
We’ve got a SALSA HOLIDAY IN BALI planned for Spring 2013. Sound exciting? It will be! We’ll tell you more SOON!
While you’re here, have a quick recap of our current and upcoming classes:
Tuesdays: Perth’s most popular Salsa classes followed by W.A’s own “flagship” weekly Salsa party at the Mustang Bar..
Guaranteed hot and steamy all year round!
Opens with a FREE LESSON at 7PM!
Thursdays: Our Thursday night crew are loving the BACHATA and PUERTO RICAN SALSA classes (7-9pm @ Royal Park), and Salvatore & Marion are now splitting classes by level. We were a couple of girls short last 2 weeks, so any extra ladies will get great dancing value from our enthusiastic gentlemen
Saturdays: Still the best way to “fast track” your Cuban Salsa and give your body the Latin movement it needs. 2hrs intensive from 3pm every week gets you “groovin’ like a Cuban” and gets us all in the mood for a quiet beer & nibbles at Carnegies afterwards.
New Saturday Morning: Cuban Folkloric and Contemporary classes with Cuban Instructor, Garibaldi Deslisle! (9am @ Royal Park)
Really excited to see a weekly class finally dedicated to the Afro roots of Cuban dancing. Starts June 15th.
New Mondays: (read above) More Cuban Salsa for those seeking “performance flair” 7.30-9pm , with Hip Hop/Popping 9-10pm.
Starts June 10th.
ZUMBA ® FITNESS
Hope you guys are all set for our new term just around the corner. Titi and the girls have been smashing their training to have it ready for you NEXT WEEK!
We are also very proud to introduce our new ZUMBA Instructor Heather Meldrum who has qualified with us recently. Heather is looking forward to getting you all hot and sweaty real soon!
We are really happy with the support you guys have given this awesome new dance fitness product, and the fun you are having there.
NEW CLASS: From 6th June at Canning Vale (Amherst), we will open a NEW level 1 BOKWA class every Thursday at 7.30pm, (immediately following the 6.30pm ZUMBA® class). All welcome!
Our Tuesday night BOKWA class will “graduate” to level 2, which means more energy and more advanced steps, but you guys can handle it! (says Titi ). Hope to see you there!
We haven’t forgotten you folks in the North either!! Coming soon!
That’s it for now, (hope I didn’t forget anything..), but we’ve still got lots to tell you over the next few months, so stay “tuned”.
See you on the dance floor,
Love Simon and the Danza Loca Crew!!
