Piel Canela Dance and Music School employs a cadre of savvy instructors to fill feet and noggins with the knowledge of flashy, Latin-inspired footwork. Students of all experience levels can shimmy through a variety of styles splashed rhythmically across the schedule, including salsa, bachata, samba, zouk, and mid-air breakdance dueling. Partner dances seasoned with more Western-flavored spices include the hustle and East Coast swing. Dancers in the mood for solo spinning can drop in on hip-hop, ballet, or belly-dancing classes. The studio’s inclusive group environment offers a fun and supportive atmosphere in which to perfect steps. Every other Saturday, Piel Canela hosts dance socials for beginners to hone their moves in an intimidation-free real-world setting and plot riotous square-dance takeovers. Classes are subject to fill up, so call the studio ahead of time to reserve a space.
Piel Canela Dance and Music School
The instructors of Piel Canela Dance and Music School are spreading the word with their feet. A nonprofit organization devoted to introducing newcomers to the sounds and steps of salsa and mambo, Piel Canela's team works to teach students not only the steps of dance but an appreciation for the music and culture from which they sprung. Latin dances—along with ballet, hip-hop, Zumba, and competitive standing—dominate the class lineup, and workshops, socials, and salsa vacations are offered to deepen students' skill sets. While the school's focus is centrally on losing one's extra left foot, the school also holds classes in art, Spanish language, and music.
