Bay Area International Latin Events’ owner and instructor Greg “DJ Muevete” Richardson leads up to 24 students through the sultry steps of salsa, merengue, and bachata at scenic St. Pete Pier. Over six weeks, 50-minute classes explore the fundamental steps, rhythm, and Telemundo advertisements that compose Latin choreography. Each week’s class builds on the last week’s steps, with a 25-minute private lesson ensuring singles fully master the flirtatious footwork of each dance. Drop-in classes offer singles a flexible way to experience the partnered promenade of salsa, teaching students basic skills and rhythms and preparing them for Salsa II courses, where they learn the leading and following techniques that distinguish all great dancers and Simon Says champions.
