Speed Dancing to learn Merengue & maybe a little Salsa
Please don't worry if you are not a good dancer. This is a beginners class and will be a blast!
How it works
This will be a great event! Merengue is a two person dance, and our format creates great interaction. It also ensures that you will get to meet a number of people of the opposite sex. As with our regular speed dating events, you will be given a scorecard to fill out at the end of the event where you can choose who you would like to keep in touch with. We will email matches the next day.
We will learn how to dance Merengue (and maybe a little Salsa) in a series of manageable steps.
Their will be a line of women facing a parallel line of men. You will dance with your partner (the person who is facing you) for a few minutes learning the steps to Merengue. Then, the men will stay put and the women will rotate over one spot, thus everyone will have a new partner to dance with. The women will continue to rotate every few minutes as new steps are taken on. Their will be continuous repetition to give everyone plenty of time to practice each component of the dance.
After the dancing portion of the event we will go into lightening rounds of speed dating, where you will get 2-3 minutes to talk to each person. Everyone will complete their score card indicating who they would like to keep in touch with. Matches will be sent the next day.
