Salsa – Intermediate 1

At this level, we give dancers a deeper practice into Salsa Cubana. We revisit core elements to enhance them, and build more complex figures based on them, keeping a close eye on correct leading and following technique. We also address different concepts for experienced dancers.

The objective of the course is to deepen your understanding of the dance:

  • You will build upon known core elements and create more complex elements and figures such as Sombrero, Siete Coca-Cola and more.
  • You will be introduced to new Cuban Salsa concepts, and understand the mobility of the dance better.
  • Improve your Partnerwork technique, and be a better leader or follower.
  • Approaching the notion of solo dance and styling.

It 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.

The course is the first part of two parts (non-dependent on one another). For the second part check out Salsa Intermediate 2.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for dancers who took La Candela’s Improver course or have between 2-6 months of learning salsa experience. The course will most likely prove too difficult for dancers who just enjoyed the dance and didn’t take 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:

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.
