At Liquid Rhythm, instructor Derik Dollis leads dancers through salsa partnering and footwork, encouraging beginners to draw upon their knowledge of other dance forms to mix up their own special salsa blend. Twice a week, hips swivel and feet tap to a fusion of urban and Latin moves in an energetic, judgment-free environment—every Tuesday, students learn the basic footwork needed to move on to the next level, and Sunday sessions explore the fundamentals of partnering and introduce turning patterns that flesh out dances with extra flair. On the last Sunday of the month, salseros and salseras congregate to rub elbows and step on toes at the Salsa Soul-cial, with water, wine, and snacks available to sate appetites and slake thirsts whetted by a night of feverish dancing. Dynamic duos such as husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, or man and man's best friend can sign up for a tandem class to lock limbs together and enjoy all the excitement of salsa with their closest companion.
Liquid Rhythm Inc.
Though his rhythmic past runs through hip-hop and breaking culture, Derik Dollis broke ground on Liquid Rhythm Inc. after seeing how seamlessly club styles meshed with the ballroom art of salsa. Dollis and a quintet of additional instructors schooled in dance styles such as ballet and jazz use salsa's unmistakable rhythmic structure as a loose guideline, allowing students to break from the idea that they need to master tricks to succeed. Classes encourage dancers to develop a personal style while learning posture, isolations, and body movement in tandem with adding sensual flair and the least-prickly ways of holding a rose in your mouth. The company also totes its New Orleans pride across the country to perform at national salsa congresses.:m]]
