Sexy. Hot. Unique. This is Reggaetón, a dance style from Latin America.
Reggaetón? Isn’t this just music?
It’s not! Rooted in Hip-Hop, Salsa, Reggae and Dancehall the dance music from Latin America has also created a whole new Dance style. And it’s still in progress: Moombahtón, Balkatón, Cubatón – countless different styles have been emerged from this energetic style!
4 Years ago I met this dance style out of curiousity: In Cologne and surroundings there exist only two Reggaetón classes and one of these is also unofficially… I just had been lucky to dance Reggaetón the first time in a workshop and it hooked me with it’s energetic moves and the fast music! Who doesn’t want to know how to swing the hips right, doing a perfect body roll and more?! So I decided to catch up with the classes.
Now I know: The experience with Reggaetón helped me to get awareness of my body than anything else. I feel strong and sexy, exactly what this Dance and Music embody.
The Dance style is unique: feminine and strong moves create a blend of elegance and explosive and the simple rythm of Reggaetón enables to dance to every song. And ths dance creates real self-confidence. Many lyrics describe the woman as gata (cat) – Beautiful and graceful but also strong and dangerous, tough and independent, irresistible but also hard to get. A selfconfident woman and a real Latina.
Today I dance to many different music styles but I genuinely recommend you Reggaetón. The music animates to dance and the basics are really easy to learn.
