About Movimiento

Bernadette Ashley - Director

Movimiento is Spanish for movement, and the idea behind Movimiento is to foster not only street latin dancing and physical movement, but a range of multicultural  musical, social, and artistic practices.

Movimiento teams with various venues in the Townsville CBD to bring you classes, courses, social dance opportunities, performances, and events.

Director Bernadette Ashley is Townsville’s most experienced street Latin dance teacher, specialising in Cuban Salsa, Rueda de Casino and Bachata.  She was an assistant teacher at La Fiesta from 2004 to 2011, which gave her a grounding in Salsa, Rueda, Bachata, Zouk, and more, prior to establishing Movimiento. Bernadette connects strongly to the music, dance, aesthetic, and culture of Latin America, particularly to Cuba, and has the desire to enrich to the cultural and social diversity of North Queensland.

Apart from its value as a cultural form and physical activity, Bernadette believes participation in dance and music is beneficial for social connection, generates a general sense of well-being, and creates more cohesive communities.
