A bit about the Latin Dance Society
The Latin Dance Society brings people together through dance and music. Through a mixture of classes, socials, and parties you will meet new people and find your own reasons to be a part of the wonderful world of Latin dance.
Cuban salsa, originally called Casino, is a popular social dance. The dance boasts a rich repertoire of Afro-Cuban influenced dance styles and has evolved a vibrant culture centred around Cuban music. The dance is an interplay between a leader, a follower, and the music. Once you acquire the skills of leading or following, you can take these skills to dance and party all around the world.
Who can join the Latin Dance Society?
Every semester, we welcome dancers of all abilities (including absolute beginners, intermediate, and advanced dancers). So, if you are an experienced dancer, or you have never heard of Cuban salsa before, there is a place for you in the Latin Dance Society.
Wear comfy clothes, come alone or bring a friend (no partners required).
