The Latin II class is also geared towards students that want to focus on partner dancing and Ballroom. This class is for ages 12-15. After learning the basic steps and techniques of the ballroom dances, (Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cha-Cha-Cha, and Samba.) students will apply their techniques to more intricate combination steps and turns with their partner. Students in this class will be eligible to form part of the UCMD Rising Stars team. Each session will be 120 minutes long, and will pay careful attention to the performance qualities, stage presence, and styling of each partner team/dancer. It is in this class that the students will be able to more freely express their individual dance styles and will be encouraged to add in their own flair while keeping one beat and technique.
