In this 3 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.
How to tell if a song is a salsa song, how to find the dance beat, what to do when you loose the beat, 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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
