MUEVETE! at the Arts Centre Washington

In order to get people back into the salsa mood (and improve fitness), I will be running sessions I have called MUEVETE! at the Arts Centre Washington from Saturday 24 July.

Muevete! means Move it!  - and that's exactly what the sessions will be about, getting moving again. It will be individual dancing based on line-ups - mostly salsa plus a little bachata and some fun stuff.


Starting gently with the typical line-ups we do before classes the combinations will be progressive; slowly increasing in content, complexity and pace to build up longer routines with a Cuban(ish) flavour. 

it will be different, energetic, challenging, but a lot of fun. The sessions will give you the opportunity to get back into the salsa zone - the music, the dancing ...... and meeting people!!

Please note that there is a limit on the numbers in the Low Barn at the Arts Centre and certain COVID precautions remain in place (see below). Please let me know if you intend to come along: first come, first served. Once the room capacity is reached I will start a waiting list.
