Absolute beginners Welcome. Crossbody style salsa lessons. No partner necessary. Fun, informative classes. Patient, encouraging, inspiring teaching
For us here at Salsa Dance Central , dancing and teaching Salsa isn't just something we do:
We love Salsa, we love dancing. We experience, see and love the positive effects it has on lives.
It has been researched many times and results show remarkable and measurable benefits to memory, fitness, heart, mental health and social life .
Years of training & social dancing + A wealth of teaching and performing experience spanning over many years (UK & internationally) went into building the Salsa Dance Central class syllabus.
TA syllabus designed so you get the very best from the classes , developing great techniques from your very 1st class with us.
We understand that we learn better & remember more if we are having fun & enjoying ourselves.
Also its on Friday so you can shake off the week & start the weekend smiling in style with Salsa.
Throughout all level classes we teach good technique. We always aim to maintain consistency, and give personal attention.
The classes are fun and informative in a safe environment with a lovely friendly atmosphere.
Even the way in which the classes are delivered is to bring out the very best dancer in you while you are enjoying yourself, learning and meeting new people.
Learn the fundamental salsa steps with timing.
Crossbody, alternating turns, tunnels
From beginners level you are already learning that its more than just a set of steps and there is so much fun to be had whilst learning, dancing and meeting people.
Crossbody travelling turns.
Copas, double turns, back to backs.
Now you have the basic steps under your belt you gets to work more on lead and follow techniques taking understanding and connection to the next level
Spins, turns. syncopation
Continuing your dance development with the added bonus of On2 conversion.
The conversion is for the last part of the lesson.
Delivered in an easy to follow,fun format which compliments what you've learnt whist deepening your understanding of salsa.
Let's talk about level 3
We definitely receive the most questions about the Level 3 class so I thought we should answer som e questions here.
Q: Do I have to do the ON2 coversion part, I think it will be confusing
A: Good technique is transferable.
At level 3 we are working with you to start dancing and thinking beyond numbers whilst being in time with the music. We don't force anyone to continue but we encourage you not to give up at that point - we know you can do it. We know we can help you to.
Q: Why is level 3 a conversion class?
A: What appears to hold many people back People fear the unknown.
You've made it part way through (you've dealt with frustrations, and emotions but found reward) learning Salsa
The hardest thing to do just as you are feeling a little more confident maybe even social dancing more is go back to the very beginning again. Some people stop learning ON1 to learn ON2 and never go back also vice versa. With Level 3 as a conversion, you can have access to both through sound technique.
Q; Well nobody else is doing it. Why is that?
A: I can't speak for anyone but myself and can simply give the reason we've done this.
It's not a new concept, its been around for quite some time.
It's my observation that many dancers dance either ON1 or ON2
As this appears to be on the rise it limits who you can enjoy a dance with on your Salsa nights
I feel that I am fortunate & very lucky that I dance both and I can say yes to dances. The transition can be very smooth with good technique and it broadens your understanding of the music, dance and connection.
note: it is not to convince everyone to Dance On2 as opposed to On1 its simply giving you access to both.
