As you know by now, the foundation steps of Salsa are the building blocks of the dance. Your ability to execute the steps with correct timing and technique is crucial to developing your salsa skills. In this class, we will add further movements which will open up more possibilities for your dancing.
It’s been said that the essence of salsa is in the footwork as opposed to the partner work. With this in mind will continue to explore weight shifting body movements an intricate put patterns which will challenge you and suppose you two different ways to use your body.
There is an art form to dancing with another person and to do so harmoniously allows your partner to respond to you effortlessly. We will continue to teach you to dance clearly and with confidence as lead and follow so you never miss a move and you learn how to communicate with your dance partner.
