Activities at Atsitsa Bay, Greece

Latin Dance, Belly Dance Fusion with Michelle Pitchers

Sat 12 - Sat 19 Aug 2023

Latin Dance Party

The next time you are asked to dance, be prepared to say yes! By learning basic couples’ dances with Latin Dance Party, you will never have to ‘sit it out’ at the party again.

This course is aimed at absolute beginners but can also be a great refresher for those with more experience. In these classes we cover a basic Cha Cha, Rumba and Jive. You will learn one dance per class with plenty of time to practice each. The last class concludes with a fabulous dance party where you will be able to experiment with the moves you have learned to many different dance tracks. 

Once you are using the basic steps, we will focus more on styling and from there on, you will be able to become as flamboyant as you wish! You will also be able to practice your dancing at the bar in the evening!

Belly Dance Fusion

Discover your inner fabulousness with Belly Dance Fusion empowerment. In this confidence building creative dance class you will connect with the most exciting and fun part of you.

This is a course aimed at absolute beginners but can be enjoyed by all. We begin by learning the most famous and central belly dance basic movements and then the fun begins! On this course you will be taught how to perform simple combinations and a short dance routine which is achievable and empowering. In no time at all you will be dancing!

Over the course we will progress to movement, spinning and enhancing your dancing with veils. Stage craft and visualisation techniques are also included to help you to build confidence in your performance. Strike a pose! And laugh with your new friends along the way….
