The ‘Pointé Centro de Danzas’ is a newly renovated dance studio in La Romana on the Calle Francisco Richiez and they will be presenting 2 acts – a Belly Dance, a Salsa Show AND a Flamenco Show!
Pointé Centro de Danzas: ‘Danza Arabe’ (belly dance)
This sensual and exotic dance is being led by dance teacher Paola Ramírez, who will be performing along side the girls in her class; Lisselotte Rijo, Irisneyda Almodovar, Carla Calderón, Ana Cristina Castillo and Emma Rosenthal (pictured above). The name of the dance is ‘Raks Sari’ and you can be sure we’re in for quiet a spectacle with this one!
Pointé Centro de Danzas: Salsa Show Extravaganza!
This Salsa presentation is called the ‘Casanova y Bandolera’ and is a stunning salsa remix/medley with the songs ‘Que Bueno Baila Usted,’ ‘Meneando la Cola’ and ‘Bandolera’ and will be performed by the Centro Pointé’s dance teachers Felix “Armando” Amayo and Paola Ramirez.
Pointé Centro de Danzas: Flashy Flamenco!
Part time Casa de Campo resident and wonderful person – Fatima Renado will be performing a solo Flamenco dance! Fatima (pictured above with the Salsa teacher Armando) will thrill us with her Flamenco skills in full traditional Flamenco costume!
