If you are new to salsa, this class is designed with you in mind. Each week, we will review the fundamental techniques of salsa, working to perfect our basic step, cross body lead, and right hand turn. We will also learn how to add styling and body movement to our dancing to get our moves flowing more smoothly and naturally. We will end each class by applying these techniques to a simple turn pattern adding more variety to your dance repertoire. The goal is to help you build a strong foundation of salsa techniques that will last you a lifetime with this highly addictive dance.
Lastly, we will focus on timing and how to stay on beat with the music. Understanding how to interpret the music with your body is a big part of becoming a great dancer, and we will discuss how to listen to the different instruments of the orchestra to draw inspiration for your movements. We will also listen to a different popular artist every week starting with world famous artists such as Grupo Niche, El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico, Los Van Van, Oscar D’Leon, and Hector LaVoe. By listening to a different artist every week we hope you become more knowledgeable about the artists and the type of salsa music that you like.
This class will happen every Monday at 6:30pm at Urban Dance Studios. It is only $8 to attend or $25 for the month (4 lessons). Look forward to seeing you on the dance floor!
