It’s a brilliant night full of fun social dancing, a small line dance is taught and a little bit of progressive dancing where everyone learns a dance that revolves and changes partners.

Alegria Dance Centre has performed exciting dance classes for companies such as the NAB bank, Tech Firms in the city and small businesses celebrating their staff Christmas Parties. Your team could learn how to do some solo Saucy Salsa and then perform a basic Salsa Dance at the end of the class whilst the teacher videos the fun. Or, choose a theme like 80’s music, Latin music, Disco or anything that could suit the theme of an event you’re holding.
