The proud recipient of a proclamation from the city of Houston along with praise from the Sandra Organ Dance Company and Houston Grand Opera, Strictly Street Salsa’s studios lighten hearts and steps with Latin-dance training for all levels of dancers. The two-class pack explores sinuous movements of modern favorites such as salsa, merengue, and bachata; each lesson is structured to introduce the simple concepts of each dance to beginners or centipedes with a hundred left feet. Alternatively, workshops delve into a series of special topics, examining the connection between African and Latin dances or exploring the sensual movements of salsa. Attendees glean the knowledge and techniques needed to develop their own styles and improvise steps when performing unfamiliar routines or celebrating after finding their chapstick.
