Top Catz Dance based in Lanzarote are expanding their range of dance classes available this season, for kids and adults!

The perfect way to serve this gin is in a large glass with 3-4 ice cubes, 5cl of Ave del Paraíso gin, carefully pouring in 20cl of tonic slowly, so that you don’t disturb the gin, or reduce the flavour, finally adding a leaf of lemon cane or lime peel to finish.

You won’t find this gin in the local bars as yet, it’s only recently been launched and is currently available from the following outlets in Lanzarote.

Arrecife: Stratvs, Territorio Sibarita & Donde Celso
Teguise: Vinos y Quesos, Biomarket & La Chata Sabores Lanzarote
Puerto del Carmen: Vino +
Gúime: La Bodeguita de Güime
Playa Blanca: Bebilanz

We love that this Ave del Paraíso gin was created by an entrepreneur as a hobby, do give it a try, if you can locate a bottle on your next visit to the island.

If you love dance, or have always wanted to learn, have a look at all the different styles of classes available:

Tap: different styles- traditional, Broadway, hoofer, rhythm tap, and clogging.

Ballet: This is a technique class only- no choreography. For beginning adults and teens- work on posture, body positions, barre and center work. A good basis for any type of dance.

Modern: Jazz, as it is called in the USA… lots of Bob Fosse style, and others. Technique training, and choreography. May include Musicals.

Irish: Learn soft and hard shoe techniques, and dances. A very physically demanding class- lots of jumps- very aerobic!

Funky Hip Hop: A fun class… body isolations, and dances. This class includes new style, and can also include a bit of “Old Skool”.

Classical Spanish Dance, or “Escuela Bolera”: includes basic barre technique and dances with either soft or hard shoes, and can include castanets.

Flamenco: Technique study of arm and wrist movements, footwork, posture, hand clapping, (“palmas”), choreographies, and also that “Flamenco attitude!”

Sevillanas: Folk dance from Sevilla, usually done with a partner, but can be danced alone. Unless someone has grown up listening to Sevillanas music, or flamenco, it is recommended to do some basic flamenco classes first! It is not as easy as it looks!

Arabic dance, or “Belly Dance”: working on isolating body movements- hips, shoulders, arms, and includes veil work.

Polynesian: Hawaiian and Tahitian Dance. Hawaiian is very easy on the body- graceful, and not too difficult movements. Can use some instruments also – Puili Sticks… (split bamboo); Uli Uli…(Feather gourds); Ipu…(gourd); ili ili….(smooth black volcanic stones). Tahitian dance is much more aerobic- it will get you puffing! Very fast hip movements. Sometimes using i i´s…(pronounced EE EE´s)… bits of grass like the grass skirt, held in the hands.

Please note that Marlene does not teach Salsa classes in Lanzarote.
