Since opening in 2004, the Lorenz Latin Dance Studio has become the greatest entertainment destination for people of diversified backgrounds and we are ready to accommodate your every need.
Lorenz Latin Dance Studio is the Premier and largest Salsa/Latin Dance Studio in New York City, having locations in Glendale, Queens, at 65-52 Myrtle Avenue, our location in New York City at 2153 Second Avenue (at E. 111th Street), and our location in Nassau at 246-14 Jericho Turnpike for a total of THREE locations, and has attracted students from all over Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan and the Long Island areas.
Our Studio offers 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 three beautifully new spacious Dance Studios are all convenient by public transportation and by car. The 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 group classes are 1.5 hours long consisting of shines and 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.
