Zabor Dance at acac Downtown

Join our newest Group Exercise Instructor, Edwin Roa, for his NEW dance class series, ZABOR DANCE: the best way to experience social dancing!

Zabor Dance at acac Downtown

description: These classes are designed to keep your heart pumping, develop your skill of partner dance, increase your understanding of rhythm recognition and musical interpretation. It will provide you with a substantial set of patterns and amalgamations that are sure to give you the confidence necessary to own the dance floor at your next event. Classes are highly active and progressive workshops, therefore, students are highly encouraged to sign-up in advance. Each month a new dance topic will be introduced. The format of each class will be divided into 2 sections; the first 40-minutes are for individual work (pattern recognition and stamina); and the second 20-minutes will be partner work (connections, lead and follow). 
*Everyone is welcome, no experience required!
**Couples are encouraged but they are not necessary. During my classes I constantly invite people to exchange partners so that everyone has a chance to experience the couples format of each dance, and they are also able to explore both rolls of the partnering skills (lead and/or follow).

“Edwin is a professional dancer who has devoted his career to the study of partner dance. He currently resides in Charlottesville, VA, where he works as an independent dance instructor. Edwin is a native of Bogota, Colombia who moved to the US in 1995. He has trained in multiple dance disciplines including Ballet and Modern. His interest in music, cultures and the perspectives of partner dance have encouraged him to experiment and eventually develop a method of teaching social partner dance that he now calls Zabor.  Edwin is deeply interested in the connectivity and the improvisational aspect of partner dance, and therefore has invested a great part of his career in the study of a variety of styles.”
