Salsa & Sangria! May 17th

Friday afternoon we strapped on our dancing shoes and got funky for Salsa & Sangria with Danni from Sassy Salsa.

We started off with a warm up to get us into the swing of it…

And then we got straight into learning a short ‘reggaeton’ routine…

Which then quickly escalated into an epic group dance circle…

Now everyone was well and truly warmed up and ready to enjoy some sangria! I made the sangria following a simple recipe of red wine, orange juice, a table spoon of maple syrup and diced apple, strawberries, orange and lemon.

Our lesson continued learning some salsa moves and practiced with a partner.

Thank you everyone for such a fun afternoon! I am already looking forward to our next dance lesson. 🙂

Christmas Salsa Party! 21 December

To celebrate the last day of school before the Christmas break we had a Salsa Party here at Lexis Byron!

Before the dancing began we had some nibbles and sushi, accompanied with sangria!! Perhaps a bit of an odd combination, but no-one was complaining!!

 

We had Christmas songs playing in the background and everyone was in great spirits and excited for Christmas!!

Danielle from Salsa Sassy then arrived to show us some moves!

 

A lot of our students joined in the fun, but there were others who preferred just to watch…

 

Hoping you all had a wonderful Christmas break and looking forward to welcoming our returning students back on Monday ❤

Salsa & Sangria! 16 November

What a fantastic time we had at last Friday’s Salsa & Sangria activity!!

I’ve had almost as much fun watching the videos back…

We started off with some sangria to get everyone a bit more relaxed before the dancing began..

Danielle from Sassy Salsa first went through a simple routine to get everyone warmed up and ready to Salsa!

IMG_8525

Once everyone had mastered that we moved onto some traditional Salsa, then some partner work.

I was very impressed by how much everyone got into it and there was some really remarkable dancing going on!

As well as learning some new moves there was also plenty of laughter involved; a winner all round!!
