Dance Classes In Santo Domingo
Any any advice on dance schools in Santo Domingo. In particular I am looking for Salsa classes. And yes I have already read all the snide comments about how Domincanos dont know how to dance Salsa.
I have seen some info on Ritmo70 and tried to email them but received no response. Also found the On2 school. Any insights on those places?
Thankyou for any assistance you can provide.
Salsa on2 dance school
My conclusion after following Salsa courses in different dance schools in Santo Domingo.
Salsa On2 (Avda. 27 de Febrero 421 - Plaza Dominica) is definitely the best place to learn: very good teacher(s), very good dancers. Friday evening they have social dancing, once a month for a bigger audience. You see there the best Salsa dancing in S.D. Only disadvantage is that the dance floor is small.
Beware that they teach Salsa on2, and not Salsa on1 which is internationally more famous. Personally I find Salsa on2 a more beautiful dance.
"On2" means: you move the left foot forward on the 2nd note of the 4-note rhythm.
For best places to go out dancing, please have a look under Best party locations with also some info on dance styles and more adresses in this list.
Disclaimer: I don't know if all locations are still operating.
Thanks for info Bahoruco!
Ever been to R70 bar on calle las Mercedes #261 and Jose Reyes. They are suppose to have a dance school Ritmo 70 above
I went to 3 different schools:
- the first (on Lincoln) doesn't exist any more, because the rent finished
- 2nd was inside a house (don't remember the place)
- Salsa on2 was the third school and best. Another advantage, you have always parking space nearby (of the shopping mall where it is located).
I don't know Ritmo70 school nor the R70 bar.
There is a spot in El Conde. Check the pic below. I have not personally been there for classes.
The On2 spot is legit. I haven't been there but I've met the main instructor in NYC and know others that have passed through there. On2 is a distinct style, as has been mentioned, but once you learn to dance you can adjust to any timing. They are also dancing some On2 in Santiago now.
Thanks much for the info!
You could also ask Rodolfo Montano Castro, to find thru facebook.
Anybody know of someone who can do salsa lessons a domicilio?
