Alfred Pena founded Rhythmology to bring an in-depth study of rhythm and dance to the public. Along with a team of experienced instructors, Alfred enlightens minds and bodies in various Latin dance styles including salsa, bachata, merengue, west coast swing, flamenco, international latin, and hustle.
Rhythmology spreads the words and beats of dance via students and semipro dance teams and stays in touch with the Latin community with Latin parties throughout the area. Alfred still maintains a career as a professional competitive salsa dancer, and was featured in Prince Royce’s music video of “Stand by Me”. Additionally, he is the current U.S. bachata champion, the U.S. salsa runner-up champion, and a finalist in scores of world salsa championships.
Smooth Street's instructors are all professional dancers, including Dmitry Chaplin, Karina Smirnoff, and guest instructors Heidi Groskreutz and Kevin Clifton. Personal lessons are available in Latin and ballroom dance in 18 styles—foxtrot, waltz, tango, quick step, Viennese waltz, Argentine tango, rumba, cha-cha, salsa, mambo, samba, merengue, bachata, hustle/disco, paso doble, cumbia, and swing (East Coast, West Coast, lindy, triple step, and single step). No matter which style you choose, the personal attention you'll receive guarantees you'll master sultry steps and move to the beat without wasting time wondering where your toes should go, if your posture is imperfect, or why it's hard to say the alphabet backward. All levels of dancethusiasts are welcome at Smooth Street.
During Group and Cuddles and Strokes swim sessions, the aqua aces at Saf-T-Swim equip bipeds with the skills and safety techniques necessary for conquering liquid-filled lands. Group classes sport student/instructor ratios as small as four to one, giving each floater more personalized attention as he or she learns to glide through the water more gracefully than a troupe of manatee ballerinas. Buyers can purchase multiple Groupons to allow families and friends to gain aqueous footing in the same welcoming environment among their peers and other swim scholars.
