Waterloo Dance offers weekly group classes and private kids dance lessons
Pop dances for children from the Latin American ballroom program are very popular for children to perform. They are bright, you can show your positive emotions in them and give them to the audience. Children demonstrate incendiary compositions at concerts and competitions.
Cha-cha-cha is playful, simple enough to perform, although it has a high rhythm (32 bars per minute). For each stroke, it is necessary to take a step that goes from the hip. Body movements should be clear. Different parts of the torso move differently: the lower one is movable, and the upper one is static. The feet turn outward. Almost all steps are performed from the toe, except steps backwards. The hips move from one side to the other or perform a circular motion.
Children dance ballroom dances diligently, show emotional expressiveness. The good work of the lower part of the body and the main step are emphasized by special hand movements.
From ballroom dancing, kids in preschool mostly perform a slow waltz and cha-cha-cha. They are well suited to various events, themed holidays. Children perform ballroom dances both solo and in pairs.
Samba in ballroom choreography is also performed in pairs, but it can also be performed solo. The birthplace of samba is Brazil. Unlike cha-cha-cha, all steps in samba are performed on the entire foot through the foot pad. The head is always kept straight. The main position of the legs is the sixth. All movements are performed through bounces (springy movement). Unlike the rumba and cha-cha-cha, the hips move back and forth.
The samba rhythm is quite fast (48-52 beats per minute), the emphasis of movements is mainly on the count of 2, the movements are elementary.
