CLASS SCHEDULE

hOW OUR CLASSES WORK

Progressive Classes
Bachata Sensual Orlando does not operate like other dance schools in Orlando. All of our classes are offered as a progressive series, not as drop-in classes. This means that all of our classes start on the same date, then run for several weeks with the same group of students. This allows us all to grow together, and we do not have to go backwards when a new student joins. This means that in week 1 the classes start basic, but by the end we will be doing hard stuff together! Highly recommend that students join in week 1 or 2 of a cycle. You can drop-in to any class at any time, but be aware that you are joining a progressive class and it may be challenging!

12-Week Cycle
Our classes open for enrollment every 12 weeks​
  • Week 0, FREE CLASS: If we are in the middle of a class cycle, we recommend you register for the free class. At the free class, new students can see what level of class is best for them, and existing students to test into higher levels.

  • Week 1- 6, Class Program: The core part of the cycle. Highly recommend that students join in week 1 or 2 of a cycle. You can drop-in to any class at any time, but be aware that you are joining a progressive class and it may be challenging!

  • Week 7-10, Class Extension: A higher level than the class program, intended for the same group of students to continue, but open to new enrollment. Here we focus on a fun topic, like musicality, performance, or advanced technique. Drop-in allowed.

  • Repeat: Most students will repeat a cycle 2 or 3 times before they move up to a more advanced program.

Next series will begin early January.

You can drop-in to any class at any time, but be aware that you are joining a progressive class and it may be challenging!

Syllabus Based
In class you will learn using our detailed syllabus. We do not have a list of patterns; we have a broken down each class into specific movements and concepts that your instructors will combine into unique drills and patterns, making each and every program cycle unique. We believe that if you learn these you will gain true understanding of how to dance Bachata and be able to create your own dance style with proper technique, rather than being a copy of your instructor - dance is about expression! 
Levels
Most of our classes are not structured by "level", but by material. Bachata Basics & Bachata Sensual Foundations are great for beginners to learn the essential steps and movements, but also provide higher level technique for more advanced dancers. Basic does not mean beginner! Bachata Sensual classes are open level, but do require understanding of body movements and weight transfers in order to succeed.

Hands down the best instructors and can make anyone dance. The focus on every detail of every move in their teaching is incredible. The way they divide their classes for each level makes everyone welcomed and learn at any level.

"Taking a private lesson with them was one of the best things I have done to improve as a dancer... you do not want to miss your opportunity to train with them. I'm glad I didn't."

I've taken many dance classes over the years, but what I enjoyed the most about AyJ is their patience and passion to help their students understand each movements and how your body works (and doesn't).
