You’re a romantic at heart. Now’s your chance to share that with the rest of the world!

This workshop will teach you the Haitian ballroom dance Kompa, based on the musical genre of the same name in the 1950’s. Like many Latin dance styles, Kompa is a soulful and sensual partner dance that is full of joyful expression. It is inspired by merengue and jazz, and has evolved steadily since taking root in Haiti during the early 1950’s.

You’ll be learning the fundamental steps of Kompa in this workshop, internalizing them through drills, and then learning to build the basics into artful combinations during across-the-floor partner routines.

In addition to learning a fun new dance in a social environment, you’ll be getting the benefits of a great aerobic workout and building core strength and body control.
