For The Love Of Bachata! Guest Instructor For August 2010 – Kari Bowling – Latin Dance Nation
Our guest instructor for August 2010 will be Kari Bowling…
“Kari Bowling is a principal dancer, instructor, performer and choreographer at Latin Dance Nation in Adelaide.
Kari began dancing at a young age, yet it wasn’t until discovering latin dance in her first year of university that she started to take her dancing seriously. After only a year of salsa classes with a number of Adelaide’s leading latin dance schools, Kari took off to travel and study dance in Latin America. She spent 5 months living in a number of Caribbean countries studying traditional latin dance forms, including learning son in Cuba and bachata in the Dominican Republic.
Upon returning to Australia, Kari began training as an instructor and was soon teaching freelance around Adelaide, both for dance schools and private classes. In 2008 she won the amateur division of the SA Australian Salsa Classic titles and also received the overall highest score. In 2009, with her current dance partner Johan Haris, she became the South Australian Bachata Champion (a title the duo look forward to defending at this year’s competition).
Kari now teaches for Latin Dance Nation 6 days a week , including salsa, bachata, zouk, samba de gafieira and Zumba but has been invited to teach and perform both interstate and overseas. In April 2010 Kari and Johan represented SA at the Sydney International Bachata Festival with a solo performance, pro team show and as instructors of Bachata Moderna (a style taught by very few instructors around Australia). In 2011 they will be teaching and performing both at the Sydney International Bachata Festival and in Los Angeles at the LA Bachata Festival.”
Kari will be teaching four classes on behalf of the Hybrid Kinetic Dance Group:
- Friday the 6th of August 2010.
- Friday the 13th of August 2010.
- Friday the 20th of August 2010.
- Friday the 27th of August 2010.
From 8.45pm to 9.45pm at the North Adelaide Community Centre, enjoy.
