Musicality & Rhytmics Workshop

Musicality and rhythmics

Let’s get dancing to the music, not the moves. We will touch the most popular rhythm patterns to adjust to the Timba songs parts. We will use our bodies to play the music and understand “la manera” of timba and salsa dancing. The beat & bounce along with the names of instruments will be explained in a friendly manner so that you will never be overwhelmed by Timba. As the result, you’ll have the knowledge to play around with the music instead of counting.

Who is it for?

The class is open-level. It should be interesting to all but it does require some comfort in movement and rhythm. We recommend at least having completed the Beginner Level or equivalent.

In Salsa we have two roles: a leader and a follower. Typically men choose to be leaders, and ladies choose to be followers. That said you may choose whichever role you wish to learn.
