Todo Latino specialises in Cuban Salsa and traditional Dominican Bachata whilst applying an
expansive range of dance theology that accommodates all individual learning styles in a way that is
vibrant and ground breaking. Our emphasis is on respectful social dancing through classes and
events that can be enjoyed just as much between parent and child, romantic partners or complete
strangers. Our Todo Latino family constantly aims to broaden the parameters of dance and to
make it readily accessible to individuals who have formerly felt excluded.
Dancers don’t need wings to fly, and at Todo Latino we love to see people in our dance community
reach new heights in freedom of expression. We have always been motivated by creating a safe
space both physically and emotionally for inclusive dance opportunities and our ethos promotes
that everyone has the right to monitor and express their own comfort upon entering into dance
partnerships and the social dance environment. We encourage an atmosphere of friendship and
compassion, whilst nurturing the unique personal expression that music and dance inspires.
Our teaching methods never involve traditional gender-specific roles and we invite dancers to learn
as leader or follower based on personal choice. Many go on to learn the opposite role after
becoming proficient at the first. Gender-based terminology relating to role is never used. Much of
the teaching is role fluid, in that followers learn how to respect a lead’s perspective and vice versa
in order to improve relationship and understanding in a dance partnership.
Partner dancing is a physical communication between two people. Social dancing at its best is the
holding of these individual conversations within a supportive and inclusive environment. Our
emphasis is on growing in understanding through sharing one-another’s individual expression of
movement to the music. The dance community can only ever be improved by facilitating our
transgender and non-binary family more opportunities to add to the discussion. Come fly with us!
