I started dancing at Mayambo a year ago and haven’t looked back!

I especially love the class structure which includes segments on salsa foundations, shines, choreography, and partner work. Del is a fantastic instructor and always finds a way to explain things in a way that makes sense. I’ve noticed an immense improvement in my on2 skills since I’ve been at the studio!

Without a doubt the best place to grow and actually learn as a dancer!

Del and the instructors are great teachers and good people! There are many places to try to dance in Chicago but I can’t emphasize enough that if you actually want to improve, you should be at Mayambo!

Del is a fantastic instructor! He is super skilled both as a dancer and a teacher…providing a clear breakdown down of all those nuances that you don’t always pick up on as a beginner…Classes are fun and inviting, and often there’s a co-instructor so you get support and feedback from two highly skilled folks.

HOW THE BEGINNER SALSA INTENSIVE IS DIFFERENT.

It’s a change that elevates your dance, ensuring you not just learn but truly embody Salsa.

UNDERSTANDING THE DIFFERENCE BEWTEEN LEADS AND FOLLOWS IN SALSA DANCING

Leads and Follows in Salsa

In Salsa, dancers slip into one of two roles: the lead or the follow. Picture the lead as the navigator, guiding the dance’s next move with a “How about this?” In response, the follow effortlessly adapts to each proposed step with grace and enthusiasm.

The beauty of Salsa dancing lies in its inclusivity; the roles of lead and follow are open to everyone, transcending traditional gender norms. It’s about finding your groove, embracing what feels natural, and, most importantly, reveling in the joy of dance. Whether you’re drawn to guiding the dance as the lead, responding as the follow, or love the idea of switching roles, Salsa offers a rich tapestry of connection and fun.
