Latino School of Dance


Introducing Latino School of Dance: In 1995, an amazing academy known as the Latino School of Dance was established by Faizel. This was the result from a demand for social ballroom and line dancing. In 2000, Scotty and Preggy Govender took over after the passing of Faizel. They continued to build on the success of the school for the next 7 years. In 2007, Savy Munian and Preggy Govender took over the reins of Latino School of Dance and firmly established it as a leader in the dance community.

Latino School of Dance

I am forever grateful to Latino School of Dance for introducing Aftermath DJ Club to the world of Line Dancing. The day is still fresh in my memory when Savy talked me through the well organised structure of the function I would be providing the music for.

Savy is a member of the South African Dance Teachers’ Association (SADTA). This awesome teacher completed her first teachers’ exam in July 2019 and is currently studying to write her Associate exam in Line Dancing this year. Together, Preggy and Savy provide a professional service instructing students in their line dance choreography.


Latino School of Dance hold incredible easy-to-follow dance classes in the south of Durban. Students can attend these classes in either Queensburgh, Havenside or Hillary. If there is a demand, Latino School of Dance is willing to extend their service into Chatsworth.


When it comes to Line Dancing, you can never go wrong with Latino School of Dance. I personally rate Savy as one of the best line dance teachers in Durban.

On a Wednesday evening, students are treated to an hour of spectacular line dancing by Savy. The next hour, you are dazzled with lessons in Social Ballroom / Latin / Jazz with the help of Preggy and Savy’s husband Dinny. Tuesday and Thursday are reserved for Line Dancing lessons.

Students are spoilt for choice with regards to lessons:

Tuesday (Line Dance)

Morning and Evening

Wednesday (Line Dance / Social Ballroom / Latin / Jazz)

Morning and Evening

Thursday (Line Dance)

Morning and Evening

Latino School of Dance lessons are currently closed due to Covid.

However, lessons are being planned to open in May 2021.

Aftermath DJ Club

I am pleased to admit that Aftermath DJ Club has had the honour of providing the entertainment for Latino School of Dance Socials for the last 8 years. The music for these functions included 80’s, Jazz, R ’n B, Bhangra, Local, Line Dancing, Ballroom and Latin Music. My team and I always look forward to these socials because of the friendly and cheerful atmosphere. Looking back at some of the video footage of the Latino School of Dance Socials, I am astounded by the precision and flow of the student’s footwork. It really is a testament to the professionalism of their teachers.

These Socials are also well supported by students from dance academies such as BNR Couple and Line Dance Academy, Circle of Friends, Solo Steppin’, JC Dance Club, Fuso Danse Studios, Pavi’s School of Dance, La Paloma Dance Club and Wings Dance Academy.
