Salsa – Improver Level

La Candela is excited to present the Improvers level course. The objective of the course is to deepen your understanding of the dance:

  • The focus of the course is on Salsa Cubana’s core elements. The moves which are the “basic blocks” in the foundation of Salsa. Example moves: Vacilala, Siete or Coca Cola. 
  • You will learn new more advanced moves you could use on the dance-floor.
  • Improve your Partnerwork technique, and be a better leader or follower.
  • We will start approaching Cuban Salsa principles and solo dancing.

Our classes are known to be explained in extra detailes and structure. This will allow you to understand better the structure of a Salsa Dance, and have the basis upon you can compose and follow later on more complex figures with perfect technique.

The course includes 8 lessons, each lesson 90 minutes. There is no need to come with your own partner, we try to start the course with a matching amount of men and women.

Who is it for?

The course is meant for three types of dancers:

  1. For dancers who took La Candela’s beginner course or a few classes before in another school. (5-10 depends on the school)
  2. For people that dance for a long while but didn’t take classes before or need a refresher of the core technique. This course will focus on the elements that keep you fro having a smooth dance. Keep in mind you still need to know the material of the Beginner course, and without it, it will be difficult to follow. ( one/two private classes can often help with getting there if you have considerable experience). (Read here more why you should take this course and not just “dance for fun”)
  3. Any dancer that looks for super detailed technique. we explain everything in detail, and this could enhance your understanding of the dance.

You need to be familiar and be able to perform the following moves:
