As a general rule Latin dancing stays on the spot and rotates, as opposed to Ballroom that travels around the floor. (read more here about the difference between latin and ballroom)
Latin dance is typically made up of lots of spin patterns. Although Latin dance is often described and thought of as having ‘lots of hip movement’ this is completely dependant on the dancer. You can add as much or as little hip movement as you like.
Group Classes: Anywhere from 4-40 people with 1 or 2 teachers running the class. Teachers will teach 2 to 3 steps per class. Members generally change partners throughout the class. If you don’t want to swap partners, and stay with your partner, that’s cool too. We have a system called ‘couplesville’ that keeps you together. For solo dancers, group classes is the best way to meet new people in the Latin dance community. Want more information about coming in without a partner? Read our blog Do I need a partner
Private lessons: You’ll want some private lessons too. This is where you get a teacher all to yourself and they plan a class to exactly what you need. We estimate 1 private lesson is equal to 5 group classes. QuickSteps members start with one free no-obligation private
Workshops are held 3 months here in Adelaide either with local, interstate or international teachers. They are long 1-2 hour classes held back to back over a couple of days. So much fun and brilliant for your dancing! Read about Salsa Sensation
Practice in the studio
Maybe you’ve been to a Latin night and want to swirl and twirl with the best of them? Anyone can do it, but there’s no silver bullet. It takes practice practice and more practice. A combination of group classes and private lessons is always best. If you’re time poor the ’24/7′ is a good rule of thumb. Learn something new with your teacher. Revise it in detail 24 hours later. Then revise it again 7 days later.
Practice in the club
We’re confident in our teaching. If after the end of one year of dancing, you have not achieved the goals you set out at the beginning of the year, we’ll refund you in full. 1 condition – you turn up to 80% of classes you book.
Choose Teacher Gender
Male or Female Teacher? If you’re learning as a couple, the gender of your teacher doesn’t matter. If you’re learning solo, women generally have male teachers, and men have female teachers. But we’re flexible.
