A dance studio on Lygon St, Carlton. We teach Salsa, Bachata and Samba but who are we, what do we do and most importantly, what can we do for you?
Energia Studios was the brainchild of Angela Fayth, a professional dancer and dance teacher of 20 years. Her ultimate dream is to create a studio that has a fitness space, a dance space and a cafe. Our current space on Lygon St, Carlton is part one of that vision.
WHO ARE WE AT ENERGIA STUDIOS?
The director has a long career that started off in the commercial world. She then broke into the Latin/Ballroom world winning the most prestigious competition in her first year. Her heart though was in the street styles though of Brazilian Samba, Salsa - all the genre's and Bachata. She has spent extensive years training and now passes on her wisdom both in the elements of each genre and the skill of teaching itself to her fellow instructors who all share a passion not just for the styles of dance, but also for teaching.
We are an inclusive dance community that uses language such as lead and follow instead of men and women because we all have something to learn from the roles that don't need to be gendered.
You can learn more about each of our instructors through these blogs.
WHAT DO WE DO
The core of our classes is Salsa, Bachata & Brazilian Samba. With our Melbourne dance studio being located close to Melbourne CBD, on Lygon St, Carlton, it's a great place to step inside the world of dance, particularly as an adult learning for the first time. We offer absolutely free beginner salsa and bachata classes for you to have a taste test and see what it's all about.
We also offer a range of other styles, including wedding dance private lessons, competition coaching and studio hire. We also can't go past the great events we have on offer from our monthly studio party, Welcome to the Dance Floor and our entertainment team specialising in dance entertainment of corporate and private functions.
More importantly, though, what can we do for you?
We're going to level with you. The amount of adults who come to dance classes to learn to dance is low. It's a huge part of what they get. Aside from the few who are dance addicts, the majority of people start dancing because of what it gives them. So what can we do for you?
Unless you are coming for a very particular reason, such as learning your wedding dance, the benefits of dancing are HUGE!!! We can get you off the couch at night. We can provide a safe and inviting space where you can be interacting and meeting new people. We can give you a fun way of getting your steps up and staying active and we can ensure that you have a lot of fun along the way, learning something new. There have even been numerous studies done to prove that learning to dance in your adult life helps ward off neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's. In this article on medicinenet.com, they talk about the many benefits of keeping active when aging and specifically through Latin dancing.
