Our Latin dance class is available for children aged between 5 to 10 years of age. The dance lessons last for 45 minutes and involve lots of dance partner interaction. The Latin dance class runs for 4 weeks throughout summer and will teach students the basics and different types of Latin dance – Cha Cha Cha, Jive etc.
Depending on the students height they will be assigned to learn either boy’s or girl’s steps. This course improves student’s interaction skills through partner dancing and 2 by 2 dancing. Artiste Star dance teachers will choreograph group dances for students to ensure a good level of understanding has been achieved.
This course is excellent for all students of different dancing ability. At Artiste Star we will teach you thoroughly during the Latin dance classes. We strongly recommend that your summer is spent with us learning Latin dance in a fun and organized environment.

Artiste Star Elite Dance School have lots of couples learning Latin dance in our Hong Kong ballet studios. The dance classes require students to follow the dance teachers instructions completely. Students from the age of 5 would be the best age to start Latin dance as they would have better communication skills with a dance partner.
Latin dance is a type of dance combination which includes lots of different kinds of dance originating from Latin America, Cuba and Puerto Rico. Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Samba and Jive are the most popular type of Latin dance. During the summer course we mainly teach Cha-cha-cha and Jive dance.
Cha-cha-cha is very energetic as we dance with authentic Latin music and Latin pop which creates a brilliant atmosphere in our dance classes. Jive is a lively and uninhibited variation of the Jitterbug and consists of steps from country dancing.
Couples in our Latin dance class will usually form in 2 by 2 with a boy and a girl. Our dance teachers will teach both boys and girls dance steps to everyone. Students will be assigned to learn each others dance steps depending on their height if there is not enough boys.
Every dance is very different and can always be expanded by adding new elements or movements. Latin dance doesn’t only include couples dance there are also solo dances as well meaning our students don’t need to have a partner all the time. Our Latin dance class usually have a maximum of 8 students at a time. Either couple or solo dance is available throughout this summer course.
