Latin Motion was founded in 1993
by Mauricio Reyes,
and is now jointly run on a full time basis by Mauricio
& Zane, hosting salsa classes,
workshops and club nights in and around the Midlands. From small
beginnings, our aim has always been to bring salsa to the people
of Birmingham and the UK at large in an inclusive manner. We
are talking about major good times - all races, ages and sexes,
deep roots, pumping beats, exploding passion, and not a sequin
or fake tan in sight. Today, as a major force in the salsa
world, Latin Motion is recognised for its professionalism, consistency
and upbeat workshops/events winning multiple awards at the 2003
UK & British Salsa congresses. It was awarded Top Regional
Promoters Award, Services to Salsa Award and Top
UK Salsa DJ Award (for Mauricio Reyes). Latin
Motion’s team (probably the biggest Salsa team in the
UK) continues to expand bringing Salsa dancing to a wider audience
with both local classes and national events. Its mission is to
offer classes / workshops / events for all abilities in a friendly
and inviting manner. Be warned you may get seriously hooked!
Our classes & club nights run throughout the year enabling beginners to start at any time, with all club nights having absolute beginners classes as well as other levels. You are able to do as many or as few classes per week as you please at a level to suit you, with no pressure from us to do anything other than have a wicked time! Dress code is normally relaxed and our events informal, appealing to avid salseros and beginners alike.
With 'fun' being a major
part of any Latin Motion class, Zain and Mauricio and their
team of instructors have spread the salsa word to countless people.
On almost any given night of the week you can join a class as
an absolute beginner and progress through to advanced, over a
period of time of course! Our membership
at £10 per year is great value giving reduced entrance prices
at classes/events. More fun for your money!
We use some of the best venues in the Midlands to host our 'Club Nights', and hold approximately six weekly club nights giving you plenty of opportunity to enjoy the dance, and hey, its great to watch too…. With DJ's playing the infectious Latin vibe till late all abilities are able dance the night away. Or at the very least, enjoy some serious toe tapping!
Latin Motion are not only involved
in our own regular timetable
but also participate in events for other organisations such as
DanceXchange and Birmingham City Council, playing a part in the
annual Arts Fest, Discovery Day at the prestigious ICC and the
Latin America Festival. As one of the largest salsa promoters
we also host major national special events like SalsaJam,
enjoyed by hundreds.
Latin Motion Promotions can arrange
and manage anything from a fun workshop for a private function
to a show with dancers for a company annual ball. In fact with
our Corporate Package
catering for the captains of industry no conference is complete
without us! Equally you can bring your party to us at a special
entrance rate or let us entertain you with a workshop guaranteed
to get everyone moving and having a great time.
Being cross age, cross culture, salsa dancing is a great way to stay fit, get to know people and generally have an excellent time. Whether you are on your own or in a crowd, Latin Motion can ensure you have a good time.
