Bachata Shines and Spins…
for leaders and followers

Next Dates: Sundays @ 6:30pm – 7:30p.m, 11/3 – 11/24

Instructor: Shauna Belizeando

To do a bachata shine is to dance independently for a portion of time during a partnered Bachata dance. The leader will let go of the follow’s hands and both people must then do a bachata solo. Many people find it difficult to improvise and create dynamic beautiful shines on the spot, which is why we’re taking the guesswork out of the process! Join Shauna for four weeks and learn pre-choreographed Bachata shines! Our new and improved Bachata Shines syllabus will make it easy for you to come week after week and learn several different shines that will become absorbed into your permanent memory! After completion of this course, both leaders and followers will be ready to shine with confidence at any time! Professional Bachata performer Shauna will help you with spins, hand movement and overall grace as an added benefit!
