The Latin Dance group organises weekly sessions with workshops for beginners and experienced
dancers, as well as social dancing. We want to spread the passion for dancing, jointly improve our
skills, socialise and have fun. We plan to meet every Thursday at Stora Festsalen, starting on
September 21. Please check the events for the respective week on Facebook for details and possible
changes in plans.
18.00-19.00 Basic workshop with Linda and Marcel (weekly alternating Salsa Cubana and Bachata)
19.00-19.30 Social dance for all levels (Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba)
19.30-20.30 Advanced workshop with rotating teaching (mainly Salsa Cubana and Bachata, other
Latin dances possible)
20.30-21.30 Social dance for all levels (Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba)
The group is open for everyone to participate. You do not need a nation card (please enter through
the backyard from St. Olofsgatan and not through the pub), and there are no fees. Choose the level
according to your previous dancing experience. You are always welcome to come and watch for a
first impression. Please bring dancing shoes, clean (indoor) shoes, or dance in socks.
The basic workshops are open for everyone to participate, and no previous dancing skills are
required. The lessons progress from week to week. For new dancers, we recommend starting at the
beginning of the semester and attending regularly.

The advanced workshops build on previous skills in Salsa and Bachata. The level and progress is
adapted to medium-experienced dancers, which means you should be solid in basic steps, common
turns and musicality (e.g. in Rueda, you should know what to do when you hear “Enchufla” or
“Setenta”). There are no fixed teachers, the teaching task rotates within the group so that we can
benefit from each other’s knowledge and strengths.
