LEADER SOLO: We’ll be working on body language, because the better you dance, the better you lead! So get ready to dive into dance technique for steps, hips and the upper body. Learn to understand your movements and use them to lead your partner. In the end, the movements will be combined with some smart styling for a cool and fresh angle on your dancing.
VERA is a passionate dancer from Konstanz. She took her first dancing steps in Salsa 14 years ago in a small restaurant in Marbach and hasn’t stopped dancing since. She dances Bachata, Salsa Cubana, Mambo and Kizomba. After moving to Stuttgart she joined a Salsa company, performing often with the show group. Vera was assisting Salsa classes for some time before she also began to teach Bachata workshops, including Ladystyling workshops. In 2019 she started to specialise in Bachata Sensual and would start happily passing on styling and technique elements to enthusiastic followers, which she has gained from years of dance experience. Vera is particularly known for her sensual dancing expression with soft arm movements.
FOLLOWER SOLO, the focus will be on building up the technique of the basics and combining this with selective arms movements with style. You will also learn how to turn safely while dancing without losing your balance. These elements will then in the end be put together in a short combination in the typical style of Vera.
