Meet Claudia
Claudia, a pioneering figure in the Northwest Arkansas dance and fitness landscape since 2010, will lead the way. Proficient in salsa, bachata, cumbia, and merengue, Claudia's passion extends beyond the realm of dance. She also orchestrates dynamic dance events, embodying her mission to illuminate the richness of Latin culture through rhythmic expressions. Speaking about salsa, she shares, "Originating in Cuba and Puerto Rico, salsa is an artful dance of intense emotion, where every movement tells a story of the heart." In contrast, bachata's allure lies in its love-laden narratives and irresistible syncopated rhythm, originating from the soul-stirring music of the Dominican Republic during the 1960s.

Embark on a Vibrant Journey of Dance and Culture
The Latin Dance Series promises an unforgettable voyage through the heart of Latin rhythms and traditions. Whether you're a seasoned dancer or simply seeking an engaging way to stay active, this series caters to all. Slide into your finest dancing shoes and join Claudia in igniting the dance floor. This is an unmissable chance to refine your moves and deeply engage with the vibrant spirit of the approaching Hispanic Heritage Festival.
