"Leuke creative lessen. Wij zijn gevorderden dansers. Je kunt de hele week terecht voor verschillende dansvormen. Ook als je met beginners meedoet heb je het naar je zin. Iedere les staat er drinken met iets lekkers te eten. De danslessen zijn erg leuk, de mensen zijn super aardig. Wat heel bijzonder is dat er vers wordt gekookt in het weekend. Dat heb ik nog nergens meegemaakt. Kortom iedereen die kan en wil zou ik hier naar toe sturen."

Can you explain what the dance styles mean?

Yes of course!

Dominican Bachata
This is the closest style to the traditional style that originated in the Dominican Republic. It is quite fast and involves fast footwork and turns, alternating between open and closed positions with each partner using freestyle movements that can be different or echo each others movements. The transition of weight between from each foot means that the attention is on the hips (especially for the ladies!) 

Bachata moderna
This is the most danced Bachatastyle in the world and haas the closest style to Salsa with a lot of turnpattern, cross body leads, arms leading & following.

Bachata sensual
This dance style includes a lot of body waves, isolations combined with Salsa turn pattern, cross leads etc. Bachata sensualis a combination of Zouk and Salsa. The bodies of dancers tend to close together, by waves, body isolations contact of hips and arms. The figures in this style are focused in emphasize the moves of the body. It’s a roleplay dance: the leader (a man) lead the body of the follower (awoman) to feel and to interpret the music. These days, Bachata has more upbeatsand the music has also electronic sounds. This dance style is much dance dusing the remix Bachata music such as DJ TronkyMind that, in this kind of Bachata dance, there is an importance of the basic8-count steps.

Kizomba is known as African Tangoand is originally from Angola. The style of Kizomba is now emphasizes a very smooth way of dancing with influences of Tango steps, but one of the main differences is that the lower body, the hip, does forward/backwards and circle movements. People dance on the tempo, as well as playing on the off beat andonly sometimes using syncopation steps.

Urban Kizz
Urban Kiz is a couple-dance derivedfrom Kizomba. … The dance style evolved influenced by Ghettozouk and remixes with R&B, Rap, Dance and Hip Hop. By finding the commonalities between various dance styles, or creating new movements, dancers can actively adapt and improvise their dance style to music of all influences.”. Enah Lebon, Moun andCurtis Seldon are known as creators of Urban Kizz.

It could be called the Kizomba underground dance. Tarraxo doesn’t always require stepping or footwork and shouldn’t be interrupted by sharp beats or changes in the music. Instead, thereis an added focus on body control and timely sensual hip movements in a close embrace. Tarraxo is about controlling the more subtle energy inside our bodies compared to doing obvious movements with the physical body.
