Body Movement and Coordination

Body movement without coordination is mostly useless. Learn to add the crucial elements of movement to your dancing with Del Dominguez in this special workshop on Monday, November 2nd at 7:00 p.m.

Body Isolation Warmup

Increase your range of motion with special exercises designed to help you move properly

Coordinate Your Isolations

Once we have addressed the major moving parts of an awesome Latin dance basic, we put the pieces together.

Move with your Movement

Take your newfound movement and understanding and apply it to 4 of the 8 major directions of dance.

Yes, you can learn this

I’ve been there myself. Looking at other people who moved and shimmied in a way that I could only dream of. Fast forward several years later and I’ve discovered that the methods to create natural and rhythmic body movement can be taught.


Yes, you SHOULD learn this

Best of all, this information can be applied to any style of Latin dance. Whether you’re into Salsa/Mambo, Cha Cha or Bachata, a smooth and coordinated body rhythm will not only help you stand out on the dance floor, but leave a lasting impression on your dance partners.


What our MMA family is saying

Don’t just take it from us, let our students do the talking!

“This is the best place for Mambo and Latin dance!!!  Del and Laura are amazing dancers who, besides being wonderful teachers, are very active performers, choreographers, students, and competitors.  Are you a good enough dancer or are you better than most?  If you aspire to improve your dancing check out this studio.

P.S.  My favorite thing about the studio:  Machito!”

Linda O.

“Laura and Del make MMA a fun place to forget about life for a few hours a week and just dance. The knowledge they both have is just astonishing and help in learning how to dance. Cha Cha and Salsa/Mambo don’t seem scary anymore, but a fun time on the dance floor…”

MIguel G.

“At Mixed Motion Art, a student is not just a number or a dollar sign, but a family member. It is the only dance studio in Chicago that is dedicated to teaching New York style Mambo. I have studied latin dancing at various studios in Chicago and had great experiences, but none with a well-rounded and balanced curriculum as @MMA.

What I enjoyed the most in class are Del and Laura’s body and dance philosophy. I appreciate the way they see the connection between dancing and the world.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I apply this to dancing on1/Salsa?

Yes, the movements will be taught in such a way that the style and timing of your particular style won’t matter. Once you understand the mechanics of movement, you can apply it to any style.

I'm new, is this good for me?

Many times, a new students will develop bad habits that have to be unlearned to move forward with their dancing. While the information might seem daunting at first, it will give insight as to how you should apply movement when you feel ready.

Do guys look good doing this?

Of course! Women love a man who can move, right ladies? I can attest to this first-hand as I’ve received many compliments on my dancing and body rhythm.

I already take advanced classes, why do this?

Because, it’s not so much WHAT you do on the dance floor, it’s HOW you look when you do it. Body movement and coordination opens up a whole new universe of possibilities. You’ll thank me later.

Can I really learn this in an hour?

You’ll receive a ton of information in this workshop. Take what you find immediately applicable and come back and do the next workshop to make sure you’re doing it right. 😉

No Thanks, i'll just keep looking weird when I dance.

Really? Don’t you think you deserve to look smooth and coordinated when you move? I think you do and once you feel the exercises in this special workshop and see yourself move, you’ll think you do too! Don’t hesitate and have to wait several months for this workshop to take place again. See you there!
