Today, let us introduce to you one of our Salsa, Bachata partner social dance student🥰❤️🔥
Tell us a little about yourself!
Hi there! I am Simone, 27, from Italy. I have been living in Singapore for about 3 years. Aside from work, my time is happily spent in church, with family and friends, playing sports, and, recently, latin dancing!
How did you get into learning Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba and/or Zouk dance in Singapore?
My wife has been asking me to sign up for many months to joinn a dance class and in the end, I decided to try it out… and I love it!
What is your favourite dance class and why?
Salsa dance is my favourite because it is very dynamic and energetic, and it’s very satisfying to get the dance move combos right in tune with the music. Also, the Salsa basic dance steps are already a lot of fun, so as I learn new moves it keeps getting more and more fun!
What do you enjoy the most about dancing Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba and/or Zouk?
- The music: I think it’s part of human nature to have the instinct of moving in tune with the music (look at toddlers when they are exposed to music and you’ll get an unfiltered example of that!). And for me, some Latin music - like Salsa and Bachata - has the power to solicit movement more than other music genres!
- The social aspect of dancing. Dancing with not choreographed moves through a whole song with a person you have never met before and being able to lead the other person’s movements is something special! It’s like speaking a language that both of you understand (and sometimes it happened that it was the only one we could both understand 😂).
What reasons will you give to someone to start learning how to dance Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba and/or Zouk?
It’s fun! Also, it’s a great activity to unwind and meet new people. And let me say this: if you are doubtful about your coordination or ability to follow the music just like I was, a great thing to know is that it is fairly easy to pick up dancing at Caliente Dance Studio as a beginner, and in social dance nights I never felt too noob or looked down on due to my lack of dance skill.
