BE SOCIAL: LET’S GET READY TO RUMBA!
WITH A FREE CLASS ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 14TH, 6:30 PM – 8:30 pm
Are you wondering what to do with your favorite someone on Valentine’s Day? Or maybe you just want to take yourself out for some fun and connection.
We’ve got just the thing!!
How about a free Rumba dance class to get your evening started? Did you know that The Rumba is often referred to as the dance of love? This dance is sultry and romantic, and the music is a mixture of African and Latin rhythms.
Come dance with us! No experience needed. Bring someone or come alone. And when you’re done dancing, sip a little bubbly and enjoy chocolate treats while you mingle.
We’ve invited Rumba expert Fredi Valera to help get everyone off on the right foot. You’ll learn the basics of the American Rumba, which is a more social style of dance, rather than the competitive International style. That makes it perfect for our BE SOCIAL series!
Fredi was trained in Ballroom Dance in Mexico City starting at the age of 12 and has been dancing since 1989 in the United States. He was an amateur competitor in International Latin and International Standard from 1989-1998, and a Pro-Am Competitor from 1998 to 2008. Fredi has been teaching at Dance Arts Studios in San Rafael since 1998 and is a certified teacher in American Smooth, Merengue, Night Club Two Step, Hustle… and of course RUMBA!!
Our version of Be Social: doesn’t involve electronic devices or apps. It involves people…..being with people…..in real time without the distraction of gadgets. It’s about dancing because it’s fun. Social dance isn’t about performance, it’s about contact and connection with each other, with music, with the past in the present.
don’t be shy…..no dance experience needed!
grab a partner…..come solo…….invite friends!
it’s a 1.5 hour class with 30 minutes of free dance and mingling
to close the evening…..
