Join us for a sensual bachata learning lab on Fridays at 8 pm and Sundays at 4 pm at Ripley Grier (Midtown).

Experience the passion and joy of learning to dance sensual bachata. Start with a foundation of traditional steps and turn patterns to become familiar with partner work. Then layer on body waves and other tantalizing, sensual moves.

In a typical class, an instructor demonstrates moves. Copying three-dimensional moves and the feel of a lead from watching someone can be pretty hard - especially if your partner is as new as you are. The result can be frustrating.

In a learning lab, we pair newer students with more advanced students for a specific mini-lesson. The more advanced student knows the particular move and can show you hands-on. Learning by experiencing is much faster and more fun than watching. And when we rotate couples, you get to teach someone else a lesson that you already mastered. In teaching someone else, you’ll learn the lesson at a much deeper level.

You’ll follow your progress through the curriculum in our app. You can come any time and pick up exactly at your last lesson. The app helps you find a partner for that lesson in the room. Forget about being behind the class or bored in class. With the flexibility of pair learning, you can choose whatever lesson is right for you.

- No partner necessary!- Great for beginners!- Everyone learns to lead and follow to be a stronger dancer.- Ripley Grier room number is e-mailed out on the day of the learning lab.
