If you already know your NYon2Salsa/Mambo basics, then please join us at 5:30pm shine & styling or 6:30pm partner work class (taught at a faster pace). $15 per class, $135 for 10-class card.
5:30 FOOTWORK, STYLING, FUNDAMENTAL, MOVEMENTS (BEGINNER/ADV BEG)
Get grounded in Mambo/NYon2 Salsa with its infectious tumbao rhythms & beat of the clave in Afro-Cuban body movement and Latin dance technique. Learn the foundation of the dance in solo footwork, styling & body movements. Solo footwork (“shines”) will put you on time and styling & body isolations will put your hips and other errant body parts under your creative control. Learn to dance in the music with soul and flair! No partnerwork involved.
6:30pm SALSA BEGINNER TURN PATTERNS & PARTNERWORK (Beg/Adv Beg)
Learn to be the perfect partner, starting with the fundamentals of partnerwork and musical timing so you can dance smoothly, confidently, and safely with anyone on the dance floor. Reinforce and build on your knowledge each week as you learn progressively harder turn patterns, resulting in a repertoire of moves to combine as the music strikes you. No partner necessary (students rotate). Ongoing classes, drop-in anytime. (Recommended to be taken with the Beginner Salsa Fundamental Footwork, Styling & Body Movement class).
