Our First Salsa dance class, Salsa 1, teaches you the 5 basic moves and how to lead and follow them quickly, comfortably, and with rhythm. We mix up the hands so that the you don’t get bored while developing strong basics, strong rhythm, and good connection. Our program is designed to create comfortable dancers, whether you go out socially and meet people or just dance at home with the home DJ!

Our Salsa 2 classes develop more advanced versions of the basics in the first series. We focus on the variations that make it look and feel more advanced while encouraging and teaching combinations that include the Advanced Basics from Salsa 1. Our Salsa dance lessons build on the previous classes that you’ve taken so that you can create a fun dance and don’t have to ‘remember’ 50 combinations!

Our advanced Salsa class works on developing technical combinations in addition to techniques that work on showcasing different personalities and body types. This class is partner required, so ask the studio if you do not have a partner and we will see if someone else is looking for a partner.
