OUR DANCE SCHOOL
Bachata con Emoción is a Latin dance school, founded by La Rubia y El Moreno (Liesje & Oscar).
Since 2016, we offer weekly classes in different styles of Bachata (Moderna, Sensual, Dominicana, bachatango …) and more recently we also added Cuban style Salsa courses to our programme.
In the weekends you can find us regularly (co-)organising bootcamps, workshops, initiations, parties in not only Salsa or Bachata, but also Merengue, Cumbia, Reggaeton, ...
We want our school to not only be a place where you can learn to dance, but also a place where you can forget the stress of everyday life, a place where you can relax and have a good time with friends. We focus on connecting people, on the dance floor, as Salsa and Bachata are partner dances, but most definitely also off the dance floor: having a drink and sharing with people from all ages and nationalities.
That is why you don't have to enroll with a partner. You are more than welcome to come by yourself and lots of people do, both leaders and followers. We encourage our students to change partners often in our classes, because we believe it's the best way to learn true leading/following, since you won't addapt to the habbits of one person that way. Added benefit is the social cohesion it creates within a classgroup. Of course we understand if you chose this activity as a couple and prefer to stay together, no pressure!
We offer courses in different levels, so everyone can find their sweet spot, whether you are an absolute beginner or an advanced dancer. For people who want to really improve their dancing, our classes focus on good technique. But you will find that there is a lot of joking around involved as well, if you are just looking to have a good time.
And on top of all that, dancing is a great way to work on your physical condition and confidence without even realising it.
Oscar, together with Liesje, founded Bachata con Emoción.
He grew up dancing in Paraguay. Since 2012 he lives in Belgium, where he fell in love with Bachata and Salsa Cubana!
He is a gifted teacher, performer and choreographer, while his smiling and joking will make you feel at ease in no time.
Together with Liesje as “La Rubia y El Moreno” he presents first-class shows and workshops for any kind of event.
