Caliente Salsa and Bachata Student Spotlight - Malathi

Updated: Jul 20, 2022

Today, let us introduce to you one of our Salsa and Bachata partner dance student😍❤️‍🔥

Meet Malathi!

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

It was during the pandemic, which was hard for everyone especially for healthcare workers like me. (I work in the emergency department/COVID care areas.) Every day I had to work long hours and take care of hundreds of patients while being separated from my family in Malaysia and not being able to travel (which was my stress relief activity pre-COVID).

So I started looking for other alternatives and since I've always loved dancing, I thought of learning a new dance. So I signed up for trial salsa and bachata classes with Caliente Dance Studio. I immediately fell in love with the classes and signed up for more. Now I can't stop dancing salsa and bachata even after borders have opened. I must thank Caliente for introducing me to the exciting world of Latin dances!

What is your favourite dance class and why?

I am doing salsa and bachata partner dance classes and I love them both! If I have to pick a favorite among the dances though, it would be Bachata because it's much easier to follow during social dancing compared to salsa dance. However, in terms of attending the classes, I love them all!

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

Dancing is really fun. It's helped me to relieve stress and gave me confidence! It's also a very interesting form of exercise to keep myself active and healthy and I have definitely seen an increase in my stamina. I'm also really glad that I was able to meet so many new people and make friends.

What reasons will you give to someone to start learning how to dance Salsa and Bachata?

Life is more exciting if you know how to dance! Dancing has so many benefits. It will not only help to improve your mood, but it will also help to improve muscle strength and tone, increases your fitness level, endurance, flexiblity, and also your heart and lung functions. So put on your shoes or dancing heels and come learn dancing with me at Caliente!
