Dance & Artistic Expressions Studio
When Baltimore Salsa Dance Company's founder Tabitha Hitchye-Holliday isn’t at the helm of one of her daily Latin dance classes at Dance & Artistic Expressions Studio, she’s wearing her sequined performer’s costume and dancing . She’s been dividing her time between teaching, performing, and studying dance for 14 years. She puts all of this experience to use at her Catonsville studio, where she and her staff lead dance lessons in the styles of salsa, bachata, and ballet, as well as fitness programs such as Zumba. Ballet students learn the basic feet and arm positions of classical ballet and practice moves at the barre, while Zumba students burn calories through high energy movements inspired by an array of dance styles, such as salsa and merengue. Additionally, students can attend the RSVP-only weekly salsa practices, every Sunday from 6 to 9 p.m. and monthly salsa parties, hosted every first and third Friday of the month.
Instructors allow students to showcase their newfound moves with fellow enthusiasts during weekly Friday practice sessions and at a monthly social on the last Friday of the month. To ensure students look their best while dancing, staffers vend performance wares such as clothing, shoes, and industry-grade rug-cutting scissors within an attached boutique. Not limited to just dance, students can partake in an array of cultural provisions, including classes in American Sign Language, Introductory Spanish, sewing, arts & crafts, tap, jazz, and barre fitness.
