Ballroom to Burlesque

Use latin style "cuban motion" techniques to enhance hip movement in all your dances and walks, or incorporate the bold style of tango to create drama, power, and intrigue while you walk across the stage, or even the flowing beauty of waltz to aid in your arm styling during fan dances or lyrical pieces.
