Street Salsa lvl 1

Important – This course is not for absolute beginners!

Street Salsa is all about the vibe. We will deal with simple figures, more movement, more connection, and more playfulness in the dance. Cause Salsa Cubana is much more than just figures.

In the first part of the class we will teach a partnerwork combo. While we will teach variations of things of simple figures you might know if you joined our Salsa Program, the focus will be on the things that are in between – those elements that make the dance fun and playful that nobody is teaching about. It’s all about opening your mind to what Salsa can be and sparking some ideas of creativity.

The second part of the class will be a practica. A safe space for you to practice with your fellow students. But your teacher will be there with you to answer any questions you might have (not necessarily about the class material), give you tips, or maybe dance with you and give you feedback.

Who is it for?

The course is intended for everyone that wants to be more free, happy, and feel flexible to enjoy the music and partner without using figure after figure.

It will also prepare you a little bit better for the Street Salsa workshops we give which are often a bit more challenging.

The course is adjusted in terms of challenge to students that finished the Beginner Level or Technique Foundation Level.

That said, while the challenge is limited, the majority of dancers, even very experienced ones tend to stay to figures. If that is the case, the course will still open your mind to possibilities you might have not felt comfortable with and spice up your dance.

We do expect you to know:

The practice is for any level, and we will do our best to offer individualized feedback based on your level.

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.
