Timba Partnerwork

The way Salsa Cubana is danced in the international community evolved over the years. Nowadays many dancers prefer to dance with a simple structure and more focus on styling, connection, and a deeper understanding of the music. Originally Timba was denoting the Cuban Salsa music, but today many say “I dance Timba”

For more information on what is Timba you can this article.

Who is it for?

The course requires knowledge of La Candela’s Intermediate 1 and Intermediate 2 courses. Coming from another school, you’d want to have at least 6-10 months of salsa classes before joining the series.

In case you were not a part of previous La Candela courses, the main elements you are expected to know are listed below:

You are also expected to be comfortable with the circular nature of the dance.

Understanding the concept of flow and having little experience with styling / solo dancing is not fully required, but can help.
