Welcome to Melbourne Latin Dance

Melbourne Latin Dance has long been regarded as one of the best Latin dance schools in Melbourne due to the quality of its classes - specifically the high level of technique taught. In 2015 MLD is celebrating its 10th Birthday, making MLD one of the longest running Salsa schools in Melbourne but more importantly - a friendly and fun place to learn Latin dance in Melbourne! The main styles of dance we offer are Salsa, Samba, Reggaeton and Bachata.

We have been offering Salsa classes in Melbourne for 10 years and were the first Latin dance school to offer Bachata classes in Melbourne. Shortly after that we were one of the very first schools to introduce Reggaeton to the Melbourne salsa scene and soon followed Brazilian Samba which is another favorite at Melbourne Latin Dance.

Our classes are taught as 8 Week Courses because organized syllabus courses have proven to be a far more efficient and effective way for students to learn and retain what they learn with revision and repetition, as compared to casual classes.

Our classes are taught by our team of friendly and well trained instructors at our centrally located studio in Richmond.

We welcome students of all levels from absolute beginners to advanced dancers! Come with a friend or come alone – you don’t need to come with a partner!

In fact, if you bring along a friend who is new to MLD every term – then you could always get your courses for half price – so get out there and hustle people!

The deal applies to any of our 8 Week Courses (even our Fast-Track Beginners Salsa Weekend Course), which means that you and your friend do not have to enroll into the same course to get the deal.

BEGINNERS AND INTERMEDIATE SAMBA BASIC AND FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP

BEGINNERS SAMBA BASIC AND FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP

This workshop is a pre-requisite for anyone doing our Beginners Samba Course for the first time. You are only required to do it once, with your first Beginners Samba and then simply continue with the Beginners Samba Courses each term.

The workshop will primarily focus on the actual basic step of samba and all the detailed technique involved in getting the samba basic as fluid and smooth as possible whilst maximizing range of hip movement and isolation. There will also be a section on arms in samba, travelling turns and more!

INTERMEDIATE SAMBA BASIC AND FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOP

This workshop is a pre-requisite for anyone doing our Intermediate Samba Course for the first time. You are only required to do it once, with your first Intermediate Samba and then simply continue with the Intermediate Samba Courses each term, although, given as these are techniques that can take time to master, it is recommended to revisit this workshop every term until these fundamentals are embedded correctly in your muscle memory and are second nature. This workshop can even be taken when you have been doing Beginners for a while and are looking to prepare for the jump to Intermediate.

The workshop will primarily focus on getting the Samba Basic from half time to full speed but the main purpose of this workshop is to give the ladies moving into Intermediate, and even those already in Intermediate, an opportunity to focus on the technique of turns and spins, with the focus being on travelling turns.
