When travellers want to let their hair down and have a great time on holiday, many will hit the dance floor and work out some new rhythms. Taking a dance class or heading to a nightclub in a new city is a great way to let loose and enjoy an adventure travel trip. Visitors to a city may be more confident when they try dancing, as a foreign destination can release inhibitions and allow tourists to have a fantastic time. Those planning a trip to Ottawa in the future may want to consider checking out Casaflo Studios, which offers opportunities for social dancing classes in a fresh and modern setting.
Founded by Emmanuel Netu, this interesting urban style of dance encompasses influence from various cultures around the globe, says the company's website. Based in Toronto, this dance style is taught casually, letting each participant get a feel for the rhythm of the music while learning basic steps. Netu likens it to how people normally move on a social dance floor, then adding a little choreographed technique into the mix. Students are encouraged to derive their routines from a variety of genres, including meringue, waltz, tango and Latin. Taking a class with Casaflo may be a wonderful way to learn some fun moves that can impress others while out for a night on the town.
Not only can travellers try a drop-in class on their trip to Canada's capital city, but Casaflo also hosts social dance nights at their studios and several other facilities around town. Throughout the winter on Saturday nights, the dance event starts early in the evening, so travellers who attend can practise their dancing before heading out to one of the city's thrilling nightclubs.
If travellers are looking to use their new moves throughout their holiday, there is a wide variety of places to choose from for a fun evening in the city. Some of the best clubs that also boast Latin flair include the Rumba Club on Rideau Street, Club Caliente on York Street and Tila Tequila on Clarence Street. Checking out some of these venues could make for an unforgettable experience while indulging in all Ottawa has to offer on holiday.
