Latin Dance

Salsa!   Bachata!   Merengue!

These classes are not being offered at this time.

Instructor:   Karson LaForce has been dancing Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue since 2009.  He originally started dancing Ballroom in college at S.U.N.Y. Fredonia and then in Dansville, NY under the instruction of Joe Elliot.  After progressing through the Foxtrot, Waltz, Rumba, Swing, American Tango and Merengue, he decided to venture to Rochester, NY to try Salsa dancing.  He instantly fell in love with it.  He studied under Kerri Vaughn at the Tango Café in Rochester, NY.  After a few months of strictly dancing Salsa, Karson was introduced to the Dominican style of dance known as Bachata when the couple known as Ataca y Alemana came to Rochester to give a workshop.  He has been practicing and teaching these Latin dances ever since.   He believes that these Latin dance styles have the ability to increase one’s balance, poise, grace, mental acuity, and social skills.  They are also really fun!
