Meet Josenia!

How did you get into learning Salsa and Bachata dance in Singapore?

Dancing is and will always be one of my passions in life. Since I moved here to Singapore for work, l’ve been looking for some activities that will help me focus, relax and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Like a dance class, that will not just help me physically and emotionally, but also mentally…and to learn something new, not to mention improve my dancing skills.

One fine day (a year ago), I found Caliente Dance Studio on Facebook, with its tagline ‘Ignite your dancing flame…’ which resonated with me so well and made me excited. There was a mention of Salsa dance class which I have only heard of but never tried. So I booked a trial dance class, and right after the trial dance class, I purchased a Latin Solo Basic dance package (Salsa dance & Bachata dance) which I really enjoyed.

I have always dreamt of seeing myself dancing like how see others do, especially on television. As the saying goes, if you can dream it, you can achieve it. Joining Caliente Dance Studio made my childhood dream come true! I started dreaming about it, thinking about it, wanting it and God Ied me here in Caliente Dance Studio. What a blessing indeed to find this wonderful place. Thank you!

What is your favourite dance class and why?

Of all the classes I’ve tried, I found Salsa dance to be more challenging. It is faster pace with a more complicated steps. Bachata dance on the other hand, has slower pace most of the time (but it really depends on the music). So far, I am taking the Solo Shines Routine class which I found much more challenging, especially when I am trying to remember the sequence of the dance choreography. It helps improve my memory. The Lady Styling class help me get out of my comfort zone by executing different lady styling sexy moves when dancing. The performance training is very fulfilling…and yes, I love Partner Dance class too which is very challenging for me, full of fun and laughter.

What do you enjoy the most about dancing Salsa and Bachata?

The studio itself is a piece of heaven on earth for me. It is peaceful and comfortable, and you’ll feel safe and secure. The ambiance is just so different, the instructors are very nice, friendly, accommodating, professional and passionate in what they do… I also love and enjoy being with other dancers, who have the same passion for dancing… the beautiful music, the steps which are very challenging. I like the humor and fun while learning here in Caliente. Being with Caliente Dancer Studio I feel the power of NOW. It lets me focus in the present moment synchronizing my steps, mind, body and soul into the music. Caliente ignited the deep-seated passion in me.

A lot…but…there are songs with titles reminding me of the things I really want to do in life…to stay calm and just dance…to the tune of life😜…it’s Calma by Kevin Cosmos and Bailemos by Grupo Extra
