There are five Latin American dances, born from popular tradition and thus codified according to the technical criteria of European artistic culture: Samba, Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Pasodoble and Jive.

From amateur to competition level, these disciplines with their unique characteristics allow couples of all ages and levels to experience unique moments together.

The basic course includes teaching the most popular dances at a social level: the Cuban dances par excellence, Cha-cha-cha and Rumba; the electrifying heir to rock'n roll, Jive; while the Pasodoble and Samba are replaced by the Triestine Mambo which, although danced to the same music as samba, has developed a significance typical of our territory.

The other two dances can be learned and explored through private lessons or by following the advanced course.

The course is structured as follows: in the first lesson of each discipline the history and the basic characteristics of the dance are discussed and the first basic steps are faced with the aim to perform them correctly and in time to the music. More complex figures are tackled in the following lessons, without neglecting the basic technical notions and typical gestures.

In the last lesson, after a final summary and the elimination of all doubts, we devote ourselves to practice, a practice that will be kept alive with the occasional organisation of evening gatherings in dedicated premises.
