The Lorenz Latin Dance Studio is the Premier
and Largest Salsa/Latin Dance Studio in
New York City, having two locations in Queens (Glendale and
Corona), our location in the Bronx on Castle Hill
Avenue, and our new location in New York City at 2153
Second Avenue (and East 111th Street), for a total of FOUR
locations, and has attracted students from all over Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, New York City and the Long Island areas.
Our Studios offer many different classes during
the week. Classes range from Salsa/Mambo ON 2 (commonly
called "New York Style Salsa", "Nightclub Style Salsa" or just "Salsa On 2"), Latin Hustle, Merengue, Bachata, Swing, and Ballroom.
We also have a children's dance program. Our
four beautifully new spacious Dance Studios are all convenient by public transportation
and by car. The Studio's staff possess varied experience and
talent in all styles of dance, and we pride ourselves in our ability
to make everyone comfortable in our welcoming, friendly and
social dancing atmosphere.
Group classes are the mainstay of our program. Our classes
concentrate on musicality, shines (open fancy footwork away from
your partner), leading and following, step patterns, partnering skills,
and just learning to have fun while social dancing. You do not need
a partner. Students rotate partners, better enabling them to adapt
to dancing with people with different levels of experience and to
develop their leading/following skills.
Our Salsa On 2 group classes are 2 hours long: The first hour
consists of shines and the second hour focuses on dynamic turn
patterns for all levels (beginner, intermediate or advanced). The
classes also teach leading/following techniques, creating a better
connection with your partner, styling tips for both men and women,
Cuban motion, salsa timing, spinning, and how to develop your own
individual style on the dance floor.
