Fundamental "building blocks" of Bachata Sensual will be introduced so that leads can learn to create their own beautiful bachata patterns that followers can dance with ease, in both open and closed connections.

Workshop taught by Zamyla Chan - Zamyla Morgan Chan is known for her musicality, fluid body movement, and keen attention to technique. Over the past 10 years she has studied salsa, bachata, Latin Ballroom, and tribal fusion bellydance. While in Boston, USA she trained and performed with Michelle Garcia - Volante, Ana Masacote, as well as Island Touch Dance Academy. Always seeking to enhance her dance knowledge, she was ecstatic to receive an invitation two years in a row to train with Korke and Judith, the creators of Bachata Sensual.
