Salsa – Advanced 1

in this course, we deal with Salsa as it should be danced, free, rich in movement, flow, full of style and sabor. We will increase our comfort with complex figures, and add some twists to make the dance more flavorsome. As always, we keep our eyes on the details and work on perfecting our leading and following technique.

The objective of the course is to let you feel free and creative in the dance:

  • You will learn advanced figures, and enrich your Salsa vocabulary and possibilities in the dance.
  • Improve your Partnerwork technique. become a leader that can lead a complex movement with flow, and a follower that can follow any instruction with grace.
  • Starting from this level we focus on styling, and making our dance flavorsome.
  • By completing this level (advanced 1,2,3), you should have all the tools required to attend partnerwork Salsa classes of any level.

It includes 8 lessons, each lesson 90 minutes, and is standalone material.

This course is the first part of the level. The second part & third (Advanced 2/3) can be done either before or after this level.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for dancers who took La Candela’s Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 courses or have between 6-14 months of learning salsa experience (depending on the school and intensity of the learning experience). The course will most likely prove too difficult for dancers who just enjoy the dance and didn’t take many classes before.

In case you were not a part of previous La Candela courses, the main elements you are expected to know are listed below:

You are also expected to be comfortable with the circular nature of the dance.

Understanding the concept of flow and having little experience with styling / solo dancing is not fully required, but can help.

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.
