This week, let us introduce to you one of our lovely dancer who has been attending both Bachata Partner Dance and Lady Styling classes.
Meet the energetic Yuli! ❤️
How did you get into learning Salsa and Bachata?
Caliente is my first dance school I ever joined in Singapore. Started from trial on Solo Bachata dance in late November 2020. I enjoyed it very much. then I took partner basic dance. The steps that I have learnt from solo class are applicable here! Then looking at how beautiful the ladies styling dances on Sunday 2pm, I also decided to try it. And I never regret.
What’s your favorite dance class so far and why?
Having tried 3 different Bachata classes, I would say each of them has its own uniqueness and I like them all! Being in Solo Bachata, you just express it on your own, carefree, just sink into the song and yourself. Being with partner, yay! You dance with someone and it feels great!! Bachata has great connection during partner dance. In Lady styling class, it is challenging to learn in one session but after more and more practice, you learn the choreo in your head and it is super satisfying to be able to master it. Like a self achievement!!! Bonus: you meet new friends too!
What do you enjoy the most from Dancing?
My love for dancing is high. So every time when the song plays, it is time to sink into it and dance to it and that is the best part. It is hard to say which class I like more. Perhaps the Solo Bachata because it is easier, carefree, you just dance, enjoy, let go and be in the moment. Seriously, it is one of best way to relieve stress to see yourself dancing in front of the mirror.
What reasons would you give to someone to start learning Dancing?
Just give it a try and there is no age barrier. It is never too late to start learning. If it’s not now, then when. After learning it then practice and practice and practice to the song. Practice makes perfect. After many trials you will find your feet, your body, your hands just flow with the song.
What Salsa or Bachata song do you like the most?
My favorite Bachata song list is getting longer in my Spotify playlist each week.
These are only 3 of them:
Amigos con derechos from Maluma — catchy
El canto de la Sirena from Dama
Bachata from Key one, Cristobal
Almost all Bachata songs are nice to listen to :)
Thank you for sharing your salsa and bachata dance passion with us and see you at social practicas soon!
