Level 2 Salsa Tuesdays - Essentials

6-Week Series

This progressive 6-week class builds on the content from our Level 1.5 Advanced Beginner series. Level 2 (Essentials) is designed for students who want to deepen and expand their knowledge. We explore how to combine the foundations of salsa dancing to create more intricate relationships between music, movement, and connection. By the end of the series you will be proficient in:

·       Adjusting your dancing to the dance floor

·       Reflecting a song’s mood in your dancing

·       Traveling movements and turns

·       Use your understanding of shining, leading, and following to create and troubleshoot your own dance sequences

You will also be introduced to

·       Syncopation

·       Momentum and tension

·       Rotational movements

Note: We expect students to come to class prepared with the following knowledge and abilities:
·       On2 salsa timing

·       Variations of the salsa On2 basic

·       Right and left turns (with & without partner)

·       Familiarity with Cross Body Leads (leads & follows)

*Note: there is a possibility that Level 1.5 and Level 2 will be combined into one class if registration numbers are less than 15 students per class.
