Human Functionality & Foundations Workshop

All around fitness is something we focus on every day at Dancing Through Life: fitness of the mind, fitness of the spirit, and most of all fitness of the body. In order to be the healthiest individuals and the most innovative dancers we first must treat our bodies with the utmost care. With these goals in mind we are bringing you a one of a kind Human Functionality & Foundations Workshop. In this three hour special occasion our certified personal trainer Ricardo Nater will be reviewing our body’s natural movement mechanics, looking at deficiencies which take us outside of these movements, learning how to correct deficiencies, and applying exercises to integrate this new structural integrity. After this three hour intensive workshop you will feel improved posture, you will have gained priceless knowledge to accommodate any existing injuries you may have, and you will be able to incorporate your new skills into your workouts, your dancing, and your day to day life to feel stronger, leaner, and more flexible. Space will be limited to allow individual attention to be given to each and every participant, so make sure to sign up now while spots last!

Natalia Sanchez

As the Owner & CEO of Dancing Through Life, Natalia Sanchez, has proven just how one woman can go about creating the life you want with intelligence, courage, and tenacity. After joining two successful start-ups while in college, she continued her education at Nova Southeastern University, where she received her PhD in International Finance. Recognized for her hard work, Natalia quickly distinguished herself as a high energy, fiscally conscious, and goal-driven executive, where at the ripe age of 23, she became the Chief Financial Officer for a company with $15 million dollars in annual revenues. Natalia’s love for Latin dance started in 2005, where after one salsa class, she was hooked! Her enthusiasm for music and dance was contagious, and at that moment, she knew she wanted to open up a dance studio. Being able to share the passion, satisfaction, and fulfillment that dance brings into this life with others, became her mission. With an eye for trendsetting concepts, combined with her entrepreneurial background, intrinsic flair for innovation and creativity, Dancing Through Life was established.

How Many Calories Can Salsa Dancing Burn?

Many. Many, many, many calories. Just like any other aerobic exercise, you only get out of it as much as you put into it. At Dancing Through Life, we encourage you to put your all into Salsa dancing.
