Our Classes

Salsa

Salsa has a consistent rhythm and once this is understood there are lots of turn patterns and moves that can be learnt and danced to the music. However, Salsa is NOT a choreographed dance. The underlying emphasis in all classes is to teach the guys how to lead correctly and the ladies how to interpret the guys lead.
If you are not sure which class is most suited to your level please ask.

Bachata

Bachata is a style of dance that originated in the Dominican Republic – It is now danced all over the world. Several slightly different styles have emerged but, unlike salsa, they all share the same basic step.

Absolute Beginner

Learning and understanding the basics is very important as everything else you learn in salsa will be built on top of this.

What you will learn:-

  • Salsa timing
  • Basic salsa footwork forward & back, side to side, breaking back, single turns
  • Basic salsa partnering
  • Correct partner hold
  • Correct posture and tension
  • Basic salsa partnering forward back, side to side, cross body lead, single turns, breaking back

Experienced Beginner

In this class we will learn a more difficult series of salsa moves and start to link them together, so the movement becomes more of a dance. This is still a beginner class so every part of the move will be broken down into simple steps, & the basics will be re-emphasised.

What you will learn:-

  • Cross body lead with inside turn for lady
  • Cross body lead with outside half turn for lady
  • Cross body followed by a break back
  • Intro to Spinning Technique
  • Cross body followed by a single push turn
  • Double handed push turn
  • Double handed Cross body Inside turn

Improver

The pace of the improver class will be faster than the beginners classes because the teacher will not be breaking down any of the basic steps, the emphasis will be on learning new moves to complement and add to the moves that you already know, new salsa technique’s for executing these moves and a focus on the person your dancing with, your partner and how you can add elements of style to your dancing.

What you will learn:-

  • Basic Copa, Copa with one and a half turn
  • Copa with a break back
  • Touch and Go moves
  • Intro to Ladies styling
  • Spinning technique
  • Arm locks, arm throws, flicks
  • Cross body lead followed by double spin
Intermediate/Advanced

There’s much more to this class than just learning Int/Adv moves to lead and follow. By now you will have been taught all the things you need to know in order to lead or follow your partner around the dance floor to salsa music. You should be comfortable with leading or following moves & spins.

The next stage is to focus on the ‘way’ you lead or follow. You will get advise on how you can add Latin movement and styling to your leading and following. How to improve the connection you have with your partner on the dance floor & how to take ownership of the moves make them your own, so your dancing is a true expression of how the music makes you want to move. That is SALSA!

What you will learn :

  • Intermediate/Advanced salsa moves
  • Advanced salsa lead and following techniques
  • Adding Latin movement and styling to your salsa dancing
  • Improving your connection with your dance partner
  • Adding musical interpretation to your salsa dancing
  • Dance floor craft and etiquette
