What the IEU Dance Club Was Up To This Semester

Written on December 12, 2018 by Campus Life in Other Activities, Social

The IEU Dance Club in Segovia is a place where people can meet and socialize while enjoying their bodies and following and discovering their love for dancing. Now that the semester is coming to an end we would like to wrap up everything we have been doing last semester. We have offered a variety of classes and workshops on a weekly basis, which were open for anyone to join whenever they would like to. Here are our classes:

Latin Dance: Every Friday we have offered and enjoyed Latin Dance classes. This semester we decided to focus on one style instead of learning different styles. The style was salsa, to be specific a Rueda Cubana. This is a type dancing perfect for a big group of people at a celebration for instance. In essence numerous couples are in a circle, dancing like crazy, as they regularly switch partners, shout words or make fun noises, and change the direction they are dancing in. It is very energetic and simply fun to do. We learned a variety of movements from the base step to more complicated ones like “Dile que no”. Laura Segovia is a local dance teacher who has been teaching us since last year and has a lot of energy as well as kindness. The classes have been great and we will present what we have learned at the Creativity Day, which we all are very excited about.

Hip Hop: Every Thursday, an amazing architecture exchange student has volunteered to give absolutely fantastic and breath-taking classes—breath-taking in the literal sense, as his choreographies were difficult and expected a lot of energy that would leave you breath-less at the end of each class. His name was AJ Flores and we are said to see him go back home to the US, but are more than joyful of having had the opportunity to learn from his very unique and intense style of hip hop.

Workshops: There have been a variety of hip hop workshops given by Claudia Taveras and Olivia Glowacka for those who just couldn’t get enough of hip hop and wanted to experience some other styles, as hip hop offers a wide variety of different ones. I myself gave a Christmas Dance Workshop to celebrate the start of the Advent time. The Christmas choreography to Lindsey Stirling’s “Christmas C’mon” was a lot of fun to dance and a great way of enjoying the Christmas time.

We hope that people have had a lot of fun this semester and learned a lot as well and cannot wait for the next one to begin! Happy Dancing to everyone!
