Group Salsa Class Description

If you have always wanted to learn Salsa dancing or to improve your dance techniques, styling or partnering skills, this this class will bring you up to speed.

Basic Beginner Fundamentals: Intro to Timing, Movement & Partnerwork: Level 1 introduces basic vocabularies and fundamentals to NY club-style Salsa. Topics include timing, footwork, body movements, lead/follow technique/etiquette and music appreciation(Music 101). This class will give you the confidence and the know how to get you on the dance floor social dancing as quickly as possible.

Advance Beginner Essentials: Speed, Musicality & Turn Pattern Combo: More advance material will be covered with emphasis on speed, more advanced footwork and turn patterns. At this level, it is mandatory to have great understanding and importance of musicality, balance and coordination as well as knowledge of all basic fundamentals, R/L Turns, CLB and structures (leading & following technique) of NYon2 Salsa/Mambo. Open to active social dancers with beyond basics techniques.

  Each workshop starts with warm up and body movements to various Salsa rhythms, followed by steps (shines) & turns drills, dancing to various tempo (from slow to fast). You will be challenged and will leave with a better understanding of the structure of the salsa footwork vocabulary, turn patterns and the  lead/follow technique of  partnering dancing.

What should I wear?
Any comfortable or gym clothes that you can move and sweat in. Bring bottle water and a towel.

What shoes to wear?
Beginners can start with shoes for general dancing, preferably with leather soles or ballroom suede-bottom shoes. Ladies can wear flats, ballet/jazz shoes or medium heels thatís ankle strapped (PLEASE no stilettos or heels higher than 3"). Dance sneakers are ok. Avoid any kind of work boots, heavy clogs or rubber sole that restricts any feet movement.
