Salsa for Beginners

What You'll Learn

In this class you will learn the fundamentals of Cuban style Salsa and the basics of Bachata, Son and Cha Cha Cha.

Salsa Cubana, also known as "Casino," is danced individually, as a couple, or in a group. Rueda de Casino ("Salsa Wheel") is danced among multiple couples via call and response.

In this fun and engaging series, Rueda is used as a methodology to expedite Salsa learning in any format. Focus is on the individual dancer in connection with a single partner. By the end of this series you will understand timing, body movement, lead-follow technique, space use, footwork, turns and combinations. Music is provided, video recording allowed and dance performance opportunity available.

Class Format

Class begins with a body movement warm-up. We teach step variations and movement patterns in rotating lines. We then apply these step patterns and turns in partner format, where combinations are formed through lead-follow. Rueda de Casino is used as a method of partner rotation and collective dance. Class ends with a 15 minute practice session, where repetition of moves and individual assistance help students solidify skills.

Salsa Musicality

In Salsa, timing, rhythm and dance flow is cued to the dancer through layered music. Lead and follow between partners is created through the frame, points of connection, and tension.

The essence of Salsa derives from a fusion of Afro-Latin and European music and dance forms, enhanced by contributions from music and dance around the world, including jazz, ballroom and various styles of pop. Salsa is both dynamic and accessible. Beginner Salsa with Rueda de Casino will help you acquire the skills and sensibility necessary to survive on the dance floor, advance to higher levels, and form a basis for your own dance style.
