David's Reggaeton class focuses on developing body control, musicality, and that essential reggaeton groove to commit to the music. He starts his class with a warm up consisting of stretching and getting muscles loose, together with some basic moves to get familiar with the vibe of reggaeton music. Then he will teach a choreography to explore movement in different textures and grooves. In every class he will want you to find yourself in the music and to express it fluently.
