Latin dances

Hi,
If somebody dances latin dances as salsa or bachata ? And interested to attend different dancing social nights ? :)

Tango!!!!!!!!

Tango is awesome ! It is in my todo list :)

Well, go for it - start signing up for classes and you'll get to meet lots of ladies (normally the ladies far outnumber the men)

I love Latin dancing - Cha Cha, Rumba, Samba, Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Tango . . .

I usually dance on Saturdays at Abrazos. If you're thinking of taking up tango, do check this place out
facebook.com/abrazosclub

:cool:

I mostly up for dancing :) Meeting ladies its not my primary goal :D
I am a beginner only i've just started to learn , and i'm more interested in bachata than salsa .
What kind of music they play in Abrazos ? Is it similar to Cuba Libra or Union Square ?

Hhmmm . . . in partner dancing, guys normally dance with gals  :P;)

OK, so meeting ladies is not the goal . . . what I mean to say is that guys who wander in alone will not have a problem getting partners to dance with since the ladies usually outnumber the men  ;)

Abrazos is not at all like Cuba Libre or Union Square, it's dedicated totally to Tango. So it's mostly tango music - ranging from

traditional tango

to tango nuevo (electronic)

and sometimes even alternative . . .

The same as anywhere else in the world:
(1) select a dance school
(2) sign up for dance classes
(3) attend classes
(4) then practice, practice, practice and practice some more . . .
:P

If you want to have a look-see first, check out the Salsa Party @ Studio UP, 79B Tanjong Pagar Road, on Mon, 16 May 2011, 10 pm

Have a nice weekend

Hi Ame1ia
Is this reoccurring event ?

If somebody is interested this Thursday will be latin night at 7even club in Illuma mall.
They play mostly salsa and bachata with occasional cha cha cha .
And fo salsa beginners it might be useful going to Union square at tuesdays they have beginners night ( though not many beginners there ) or every wendsday at JB they have beginners night with slower music.

wweehh:) can i join the discussion?
anyway base on my experienced last friday i went to Movida, harbourfront because a friend of mine invited me, latin music was very awesome but when he taught me how to dance i step a lot of feet..which is very awful so i decided to learn and join the beginners, :D , so can anybody advise what to do and wants to learn salsa or even bachata, coz i used to dance hip hop and now i cannot manage myself to dance neither of the both:)(salsa and bachata)..lolz:D

Hi riyn,
There are plenty of schools teaching salsa in Singapore . You can pick up one with best combination of schedule and price for you :)
Available schools can be find be google :) I was learning in jitterbugs and i liked it . My friends tried en motion , attitude and JB and were very satisfied . I am sure others school good as well :)
As far as bachata considered ongoing courses only in en motion dancing school  ( i did my research last month so maybe things changed )

thanks genadyc... latin music is fun...i really had fun:)

Hey,

I learnt Salsa and Bachata when I was in Vietnam. Until now, still remember some movements, but not 100%. If anyone in here is interested, let's go dancing together! :D

Hello
I see this thread started ages ago. I hope that someone might still keep up with the forum.

I am an LA salsera and interested in salsa nights. I have done some tango but I am not sure if I can do. However, I am very interested in Kizomba. Any suggestions?

I will be in Singapore in mid Oct and living there for 2 years. Clementi is my base and have no idea how easy commuting is.

I would really appreciate some guidance and welcome any conversations with people who share the same interest too in regard with making friends too.

;-)
