Across six sessions of Intro to Latin Ballroom, students learn basic patterns and variations of the cha-cha, rumba, and samba, and Intro to Club Latin helps limbs master the moves of bachata, cumbia and merengue while balancing on a disco ball. All students, whether they came alone or with a companion, switch partners frequently during each class.
