$10.00 with lesson, $5.00 for just dancing
The Rosendale Cafe offers their continuing series of Latin dance events on most Thursday nights, each starting with an all-levels lesson from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, and dancing until 10:30pm. Food will be served up to 10:00pm, after which there will only be bar service for the rest of the evening.
Dance forms may include Salsa, Mambo, Merengue, Cha Cha, and Bachata.
The instructor this evening with be Julia Farr, who has been dancing salsa and other forms of Latin dance for ten years. She began her studies in Chile and Mexico (the “on 1” style) and proceeded to pursue salsa intensively when she moved back to New York City. She focused on Cuban style Rueda de Casino at You Should Be Dancing in Manhattan, and then moved on to New York Style (“on 2”) at Latin Fever in Brooklyn, where she performed on a student team.
Julia is a regular at the Rosendale Cafe’s salsa night and has been training with Maia Martinez and David Salvatierra of Dojo Dance Company to prepare for upcoming performances. In addition, Julia will be teaching salsa classes at New Hope Community in Loch Sheldrake, NY.
Julia is an enthusiastic teacher with a fun-loving approach and attention to detail and expression. Her experiences living in Latin America, as well as being a certified ESL and Spanish teacher and translator, have given her a connection to Latin music and dance that she looks forward to sharing with you!
