BALLROOM & LATIN
Learn the timeless moves to your favourite Ballroom and Latin dances
At Sonias we provide beginner through advanced classes for many styles of ballroom and Latin dancing - Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Salsa, Samba, Rumba, Bachata, Meringue, Cha-Cha, Hustle, Swing, Two Step, and others. We teach both styles of ballroom dancing, American and International.
American Style Ballroom would compliment more of your social dancing environments (weddings, office parties, holiday functions, nightclubs, etc.), due to the smooth rhythmatic motion of the hips and bending and straightening of the knees. American style features open work, under-arm turns, open extended lines, etc.
International Style Ballroom would be more of your competitive style ballroom. International is more pop and flash, due to the persons ending their steps on straight legs.
International style requires a close proximity of the partners at all times, and hence can use the concept of a "common center" which allows for a three- dimensional body action in unison.
Lessons can be taken in 'private' or in an 'group' environment. Private lessons give you the opportunity to form your dancing at your own pace. You can take private lessons by yourself, as a couple or in a group. Group lessons are scheduled at fixed times during the evening and you can walk-in or buy packages in advance for a discount.
are occasionally held and provide an excellent environment
for you to practice what you have learnt as well as

We also hold Social Ballroom Group Dances for our members and guests to learn dancing in a night club style setting.
