What is Salsa?
Salsa is a great Latin dance full of spins and excitement. It is danced with a partner, though you don’t need to bring your own, as we rotate couples in the class. Salsa is also a great way to socialise. We make the classes lighthearted and fun, giving you time to introduce yourself to each partner and we encourage you to work together to get the move and have a bit of a laugh while doing so.
What is a Salsa Class Like?
First, I lead a warm-up in which people face the front and practice some steps which I demonstrate beforehand. Then, people move into couples to practice the steps as a couple. I’ll talk you through the leading and following of each move as well as the steps, and we practice slowly, then with the music, alternating throughout the class. By the end of the class you will be able to do a short routine.
You may or may not ave come with a partner, but either way we rotate people around the class so you get to know the other people in the class.
