Property Point, a Growthpoint Properties initiative, is adding a dash of fun and flair to hard work of being an entrepreneur and offering a To The Point salsa dance class that encourages business people to relax and let loose.

The final To The Point session will be led by BailaAfrika Afro-Latino Dance Family, run by dance instructors Edd and Natasha Wyatt, who are themselves entrepreneurs. They will share their own business success story and add more than a bit of fun on the side.

This focus on fun acknowledges that entrepreneurs are under massive pressure to succeed. They also face endless obligations, deadlines and stress in the fast-paced world of business. This often results in working long hours, leaving them with little or no time to unplug, relax or unwind.

“As an entrepreneur, it is easy to fall into the trap of feeling like time spent relaxing is time wasted. The hard truth is that taking time out to relax is probably one of the most important things that you can do. Ensuring you are rested, making time for fun and experiencing new things, are essential when you are running a business. They help to keep you and your business headed in the right direction,” says Robyn Basson, programme coordinator at Property Point.

With the approaching summer holiday season, Property Point is taking the opportunity to remind entrepreneurs that achieving a balance between work and downtime is important, and it will help them take their first steps to embracing some well-deserved relaxation.

Passionate about dance, BailaAfrika Afro-Latino Dance Family focuses on Latin dance flavours while recognising their own African roots. With an aim to share their love for music and dance, they teach everything that falls into the Afro-Latin social and vernacular dance umbrella including; salsa, rueda de casino, reggaeton, bachata, kuduro and the Lusophone African phenomenon being kizomba and semba!

BailaAfrika Afro-Latino Dance Family only has three rules when it comes to their dance sessions: just have fun, don’t panic, and let the music guide you.

So, come and experience a Salsa dance class with To the Point, and prepare for the year-end with a fun-filled extravaganza of Afro-Latin dance.
