Dancing in Panama

We are looking at Panama as a possible retirement and investment location. We are planning a trip there late next year. November or December.

We are Ballroom dancers. Haven't been able to find much partner dancing on the web.

Is there any ballroom or partner dancing there?

Thank you for your response.

We are wondering where you can go to find Salsa, Merengue, Bachata, Argentine Tango. Are there lessons and clubs dedicated just to this.

A lot of places we have been have salsa/merengue type music and people dance it, but we don't always find places dedicated to it. Here in Phoenix for example there is Salsa Sunday's at a studio where they teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced group classes followed by Salsa dance Party.

We dance more Waltz, Tango, Foxtrtot, Quickstep etc.... We doubt there are any studios there that cater to these dances, but don't know. I did a google search and did not see any independent studios or Fred Astaire, Aurthur Murray studios, etc...

Do they teach group and private lessons at Clubs?

Does anyone have any contacts down there?

Would love to be able to talk to people on the ground.

Panamanians tend to dance anywhere at anytime, jusr depends if there is music and adult beverages. All the latin types are partner dancing as the previous post points out.

I have seen ads for salsa dancing and lessons, contact

spanishpanama.com they advertise salsa lessons and dancing on their website, they can probably point you in the right direction.

The clubs are a young crowd, I tend to see retireees dancing more lounges at the casinos or some of the upscale hotels have small bars where an older crowd will dance. Of course I have also seen people dancing out front of the stores in Caladonia for no apparent reason other than the store was playing music.
