Salsa Course Levels
We start with the Basic class where the student learns the fundamental rhythm of the music and how to dance with a partner. We teach variations, simple turns, the Open Break and the Cross Body Lead. Students work on each new move with a variety of partners, practicing one thing at a time while constantly building skills. We recommend the Basic course even if the student has been dancing for a while but is unsure of these basic steps. This course insures a good, strong foundation in the dance.
After one month of Basic, students move on to the PRE-INT/INT courses. PRE-INT/INT consists of many sections. They may be taken in any order as long as all are completed before moving on to the INT/ADV level. Each section of PRE-INT/INT contains different material, allowing the student to learn many new steps and improve his/her dancing skills.
INT/ADV level then builds on all the vocabulary and technique that students learn in Basic and Pre-Intermediate and begins to work on Salsa “con sabor” (with flavor)!
The INT/ADV level classes are on-going and a student may stay with them as long as desired, enlarging vocabulary and refining technique.
