Salsa – Intermediate 2

This the second part of the level takes dancers with knowledge of core elements further deeper into Salsa Cubana. In this course, we will revise the core elements and build more complex figures based on them.

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 Patiala or the Classic drop.
  • You will build upon known core elements and create more complex elements and figures such as Setenta, Siete Coca-Cola and more.
  • Improve your Partnerwork technique, and be a better leader or follower.
  • Approaching the notion of solo dance and styling.
  • In addition, we will go over new “Rueda de Casino” figures.

It includes 8 lessons, each lesson 75 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.
