4 wk Series on Leading, Following, & Musicality

Lots of you have said you know the basics of salsa but that you really want to focus on leading or following and/or you want to improve your timing, rhythm, and musicality. Sooo....

In this 4 week series, we will be focusing on Leading, Following, and Musicality! 

If you know the basic steps already as a lead or a follow, this is the perfect chance to get started learning the other half. We will deepen your understanding of how non-verbal communication happens between dance partners. We'll focus on hand, arm, and upper body signals. We'll also focus on the music because that is so key to successful leading and following.

We'll cover how to tell if a song is a salsa song, and how to find the dance beat inside that crazy Latin rhythm section! We'll cover what to do when you loose the beat and what to do when you think your partner is off beat! And SO much more you guys!!!

This is going to be a really great class! You do need to be comfortable with the very basic salsa steps (left right left, right left right) but if that's all you know, then you're ready!

This is ALSO a great class for anyone who is a proficient dancer in another style like swing or jazz to come get immersed in Latin rhythm and lead/follow.

I can't wait to see you all there!!! If you have questions about class please write them below in the comments - someone else might have that question too - or private message me if you prefer privacy.

Advance Online Payment, Series: $60
Cash at the First Class, Series: $70
Single Class Drop-In (cash at class or online): $20 (to pay online for single classes use the "suggested donation" link in the left hand column and BE SURE TO PUT "WEEK 1, 2, 3, or 4" in the notes)


LOCATION - Corner of 12th St and Webster St. (some people have said google map is wrong. please double check!)

Very close to 12th St. BART in Oakland. Pretty good street parking in the area, and several lots within walking distance. Also lots of major bus lines stop at 12th St BART.

    This is the first time I've heard about this sadly. I wish I knew earlier. Unfortunately, I have a conflict on Monday nights. But I'm tracking you.... so maybe another time. : )

    Hi. Thanks for offering these classes. What is the minimum number of sign ups you require to conduct a class? I do hope you will offer it here in Oakland again. Mondays this month only is not good for me. Otherwise, I'm in!
