Class Descriptions

 

Students will be able to chose between "Technical Tuesdays"  or " Just for fun Thursdays" as two tracks of instruction.  Tuesdays classes will be taught from a Curriculum in a progressive month-long Series of one hour classes. Thursday classes will be Dance discovery -  easy basics and semi-patterns to equip students to be able to socially dance.  Beginner classes both Tuesdays and Thursdays will be similar, but with different emphasis.  It is possible for students to attend both Tuesday and thursday classes to accelerate their learning. Thursday classes are geared for the "drop" in Student that cannot commit to a weekly attendance that Technical Tuesday will require.

 

 

Salsa

 

TECHNICAL TUESDAY CLASSES:

Level 1.0 -  Foundations 

Learn the Basics of Salsa Dancing! We will teach you Basic Steps 1-5 (Weight changes, side steps, progressive,  Cross Body Lead, and Turning) as well as timing, Partnering (3 point connection) and positive/Negative connection.  You be partnering from Day One.  This class provides an introduction to the 8 count rhythm of Salsa dancing and builds your foundation before getting into more advanced patterns.  We review each week, learn something new, and address questions throughout the month.

Level 1.5 - Keys 

We review all the basics from Foundations and Take you Further!  There is a more indepth emphasis on timing, transition from 3 point connection to two point connection, as well as emphasis on the use of cross body lead in mini patterns.  Learn more complex moves such as He-goes/She-goes while building your confidence in partner dancing - in preparation for the Intermediate Level! This level may take 3 to 5 months to be proficient!

 

Level 2.0 -  Mechanics 

We will briefly review the mini-patterns from Level 1.5 and add new combinations. Leaders and followers begin to use all 8 counts for contrast. We focus on dance technique and timing for a deeper understanding of how to “play” with the music.  Each month the pattern focuses on a different theme, for example, the hammerlock.  At this level we encourage students to keep practicing their basics and improve their connection with their partner.  Your basic skills will be challenged but you will enjoy the explicit break down the instructors give in order to achieve your Salsa dance goals.
