Experience hosted by Wuanda

60 mins, Hosted in English, Spanish, French, and Italian

What you'll do

My experience is about learning and enjoying the African movements in the latin sounds.
Is an understanding of body movements to the rhythms from the African roots. A crush course if you will. You will enjoy Afro Latin dance in a whole new way. It is not a Zumba class!
This dance class explores the basic steps of the Afro-Diaspora culture dance. Basic body moves to dance all the most popular music found in Latin America.
Warm up to AFRICAN music, basic steps of BACHATA, build according to the individual and/or group dynamics and move on to the SALSA beats. To spice up our accomplishments we will celebrate with SOCCA and/or DANCEHALL and to wrapp it up, we will do so with soothing REGGAE. Never sit down again while music is playing. We may participate in a a group but sometimes it can be just you and me. Now lets dance like no-one is watching!
Other things to note
This session is conducted barefoot and with comfortable clothing. In order to take place in this experience please ensure that you can perform one hour of intense workout.
“Dance is but a form of expression of our thoughts and feelings that uses the body as an instrument to the sounds of music”

I was born in Costa Rica to Jamaican and Salvadoran parents. I studied dance at the Alvin Ailey School in New York. I have been a dancer ever since. I have learned (and practice) several other dances, styles including belly dancing, flamenco, and tango. Nevertheless, my African roots are my heart and soul—they run in my blood. It is my passion to teach what I love the most. I opened the doors of Salsa Brava Rasta Bar in its beachfront location in 1992. Ever since, I have devoted my efforts and time to preserve, enforce, and teach our cultural traditions through the arts of food, music, and dance.

Really natural experience. If you want to let loose and connect with your roots this is the class to attend. Wuanda is very friendly and attentive to all who participate. I am a beginner dancer yet I felt very comfortable with the practices we engaged in and I definitely improved. The music was awesome and the location is great as you can enjoy a good meal after the intense workout that the dancing provides. I would definitely attend again!

Wanda is a good vibe person. Thought me a bit about Afro dance, bachata and salsa. I really enjoyed the class and it was a damn good of a workout. We ended up sweating 😅

Wuanda es una persona increíble, un gran ser humano y con una pasión por el baile que rápidamente se percibe en esta experiencia. Siempre me ha gustado bailar y tomar esta clase definitivamente fue una gran decisión. Aparte del carisma de Wuanda, poder recibir la clase frente al mar con la brisa refrescándonos, porque tengan por seguro que van a sudar bastante, pero de puro sabor afrolatino! No duden en tomar esta experiencia es un MUST en Puerto Viejo. Si quieren conocer más de la cultura afrodescendiente en el Caribe y disfrutar de la gran herencia cultural que esto conlleva, apúntense a esto!

This is definitely a great experience if you are in the area. My friend and I rotated our itinerary to make sure we could attend. The property is beachfront and easy to find. If you ask, Wuanda can send you a picture to identify the exact place. Meeting everyone was great. Class size was small so it felt very personal. Wuanda was a great host and we even got to know her more after talking after the lesson. She is very welcoming to all dance levels and encourages you to let loose and not overthink.
