Salsa – Intermediate 2

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

It is not mandatory to do intermediate 1 before intermediate 2. These are two separate independent parts of the same level.

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

  • You will learn some new core elements of Cuban Salsa such as the Tight turn.
  • You will build upon known core elements and create more complex elements and figures such as Setenta, El Dedo and more.
  • 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.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for dancers who took La Candela’s Improver course or have between 3-6 months of dancing 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.
* COVID-19 Regulations dictate that each class will be given with fixed partners. If you don't have a partner that registers with you we will try to match you with another single dancer. You may switch couple in different classes if a partner is available.
