Welcome to Free to Move Dance School!
Learn Authentic Cuban Salsa, Rueda de Casino, Kizomba, & Afro-Latin Dance!
Hi, My name is Brigitte Aucoin I have been passionate dancer, teacher, performer, educator and entertainer with an undeniable love for Latin, Afro-Latin & African dance for the last 12 years. I am the person behind Free to Move as well as some friends and a growing community of dancers and students. Why take classes with me? I am passionate, dedicated, experienced and constantly learning and growing. But most of all it’s because of the way my classes are structured, I give my students a strong foundation that enables them to understand the dance and over time become their own dancer, finding their own style, musicality, moves and the ability to improvise. Everyone is different and will have a different journey, but everyone can learn and my classes cater to all dance levels and abilities. I believe that you can learn how to dance and no, you are never too old, too uncoordinated, too shy to learn if you want to and are ready to put some effort into learning. Yes Salsa and Kizomba are fun social dances, but they are also a skill and is so much more fun to dance when you have taken the time to learn. I often compare learning a partnered dance to learning a new language, it’s probably not going to happen over night, but if you invest in yourself and give yourself some time and keep at it, I assure you that you can learn. I believe with practice anyone can learn how to dance and and invite you to take the first step with us. Already an dancer? No problem we have a variety of levels and classes that will challenge any dancer.
We pride ourselves in being patient, attentive and resourceful teachers and in not only teaching the steps, but also the culture, body movement, feel, musicality, rhythm, and leading and following skills so that you become a well rounded dancer who not only knows the steps but is graceful, fun and confident. We are have an extensive knowledge of Cuban salsa and we are growing the Kizomba scene from the bottom up in Halifax as we have fallen in love with this dance!
