The community that Wacheva’s classes creates is a uniquely diverse, positive and supportive environment that one hopes to find when participating in a class. Being located within the Syracuse University neighborhood, you’ll see in our classes a mix of students and residents of all ages, backgrounds and ethnicities.
You will also find that each teacher and class welcomes you unconditionally, even if you feel nervous or intimidated because you’ve never taken a “dance class” before, which is completely natural. Even with the nerves — Go Anyway! Take the Class! Live Life! Life is too short not to dance, or to trying something new, and you may be surprised how quickly your spirit gets hooked!
Enough of hearing from us … listen to what our students say about Wacheva’s classes:
“First and foremost, the VIBE of Wacheva’s classes are one of fun and enjoyment, which makes we want to return week after week.” -SE
“When I leave Wacheva after a class, I feel uplifted and empowered — ready to face any situation or challenge that may be present in my daily life.” – NC
A great workout for everyone
“Each class is adapted to the ability & fitness level of the participants. This makes the overall experience welcoming to everyone.” – EC
“Class always starts on time and instruction is clear, yet you get a lot of content in each class.” – MG
“Wacheva is unifying the community between all of the latin dances with spanish-speaking teachers, other classes being taught to world music, the African culture some classes are rooted in and the vast mix of races, it’s impossible not to experience culture by taking a class. Students are very open-minded.” – MM
Spiritual & Exciting
“When you’re dancing barefoot, it feels like purification of your soul — releasing any negative energy. It’s so exciting and fun to learn the dances — a workout of your body, mind and soul.” – BM
