PACHANGA PARTNERING & SHINES (Int/Adv) (1-2:30pm) - This class is designed for the more experienced level dancer and pachanguero.  Delve into some more intricate pachanga shines and combos as well as more developed pachanga basic.  Learn how to incorporate pachanga into patterns and in some partnering basics.  Learn to understand the groove and movement of pachanga as well as some styling.


AFRO LATIN FUSION (2:30-4pm)- This class taught by Mitchell himself, is a blend of dance techniques such as Afro-Caribbean, Classical Ballet, and Modern Dance with the rhythms of our latin music culture such as montuno, guajira, latin jazz, folklore, and many others. It’s a fusion of rhythm and technique which symbolizes the true blend of the latin culture and music.

 

MOVEMENT & STYLING IN PARTNERING (4:30-6pm)-Ever feel like you are stuck on what to do at certain moments while partnering? Or do you find yourself doing the same 2-3 moves over and over? Well, this class is designed to help you move and style during some of the basics of partnering like the CBL, right and left turns, back spot turns, double spins and more! Really learn how to move you body while turning.  Ladies, ever feel like your hands are in the way or are constantly hitting the guy? Well, this class will show you what, where and when to style with grace and ease.  Learn how to really connect and groove with your partner and not just move your feet.

Mitchell Provence BioIMG_6789

Born and resided till his 15th birthday on the beautiful island of Curaçao, mitchell is well known for his passion for music and dance. Throughout his latin dance career he’s enjoyed training with amazing teachers and pioneers such as Melissa Rosado, Eddie Torres, Adolfo Indacochea and many others. While traveling around the world and sharing his passion for latin dance he developed an outmost desire to fuse different styles and techniques of dance.

 

Dedicating himself to his desire to fuse he took various classes of afro cuban, weekly classes of classical ballet and jazz and a twice a year training trip to NYC to train at the great schools such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater/Broadway Dance Center and Peridance.

 

Since then he has developed a fun, challenging, musical and very Caribbean rooted fusion with help and inspiration of his mentor: Sekou Mcmiller. Join him on his journey back to where dance was an expression of love and freedom.

HELP PETITE ROYALE FUNDRAISE!

IMG_2895

This is the 3rd year since the company’s inception and in these 3 years, they have grown not only in talent, but as 6 responsible and dedicated little beings.  I am beyond proud of them and all they have achieved thus far.

For the past couple of years, we have grown in the number of competitions and local congresses they have performed.  So this in turn means more costs, expenses, tuition hikes and fees.  We are asking for your help in helping us cover some of the expenses so that the kids can attend all their events and competitions and continue to grow in dance.  They want to experience everything the dance world has to offer and maybe one day make it to the big screen and major venues!

All the funds will be go towards costumes, hotel and congresses passes, competitions fees, and travel expenses.  We hope to raise the money by Spring 2016 as this is when competition season begins.

The kids and I would be beyond grateful for all donations.  All your help gets us closer to becoming the best dancers they can.  Please help us get to our goal :)Please click below to donate:   https://www.gofundme.com/petiteroyalePR
