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

I have always loved music and dance, as a child I wanted to learn Bharatanatyam but was in a boarding school and couldn’t continue. Growing up I kept seeing different forms of dance, every dance is unique in its own way but I loved Salsa and Bachata instantaneously, I think is it such a expressive form of dance with such elegant and compassionate movements of the body , when I watch the dance I feel the strong emotions and through the movements.

What is your favorite dance class and why?

Bachata is my favorite class; it relaxes my mind and helps me connect to my feelings. At the end of a long day it helps me relax, when I focus on the music my body moves to the music subconsciously

What do you enjoy the most about dancing?

Dancing allows one to express oneself. A sense of community is found within the dance. Dancing provides physical/mental refreshment and relaxation. Laughter and fun dancing can provide a lot of entertainment. Dancing is a form of exercise. Dancers find inspiration and motivation as they become lost in the dance. has health benefits from increasing stamina, relieving stress, and body sculpting to name a few. But it's also great for mental and emotional health. I feel that dance brings people together and provides them with a sense of community with people that have the same interests and passion
