A new dance studio has made its debut in the neighborhood. Located at 4408 N. Kedzie Ave. in Albany Park, the new arrival is called Latin Techniques Dance Studio.
The studio specializes in traditional Latin dances like salsa, bachata, cumbia and guaracha as well as belly dancing. Students of all levels can learn posture, rhythm and timing techniques through private one-on-one instruction or group class participation. The instructors choose everyone's partner during the group sessions, so students are welcome to arrive alone.
The studio, which holds up to 40 guests, can also be rented for special events.
There's just one review on Yelp thus far, which gives it five stars.
Clarissa R., who reviewed the new spot on Aug. 30, wrote, "The dance instructor is one of the best out there. He is very skillful, but most importantly he is very patient. He takes his time to explain every movement and step. His class is fun and full of energy. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. Join now. You won't regret it."
Swing on by to take a peek for yourself: Latin Techniques Dance Studio is open from 11 a.m.–1 p.m. and 7:30–9:30 p.m. on weekdays. (It's closed on weekends.)
