NEW CLASSES IN SURRY HILLS/CITY

Management Latin Dance - Tuesday, May 23, 2017

The Sydney Latin Dance scene has become an infectious hobby to many living amongst the bustling lifestyle of the city. Coupled up with the many health and social benefits that Latin dancing can offer adults - starting simply at co-ordination and many laughs - it is hardly a wonder why LDA has been expanding out beyond its studio in Broadway.  
… And now (drum roll please) we are thrilled to announce that LDA is taking Salsa & Bachata to the CBD. Running at Connection Studios we are releasing a beginner timetable on Wednesday evenings commencing on the 19th of July. 
The class is suitable to adults eager to try something new and extends to those who are eager to dive fully into a new hobby. 
If you do not have a partner to bring with you to the course, that’s fine. Salsa & Bachata are a social dance expereince where everybody mingles and learns to dance together.  

Wednesdays From July 19th to 06th Sep - 8 Week course 
7.30pm - Salsa Beginners
8.30pm - Bachata Open Level

Location: 103 Fouveaux St Sydney 
Price for 8 weeks (50 to 60mins class): $155 for 1 x 8 Week course. $245 for 2 x courses combo (same person attending both courses).
