This class will have two instructors in order to accommodate both absolute beginners and continuing beginning level students. Class will begin at 6 pm sharp with basic footwork and body movement coordination, then progressing to basic partnerwork steps and rueda de casino.
In the event that not enough participants are available to make adequate partners, the class will focus on footwork, body movement, and style.
We recommend new dancers first take a private lesson or try our monthly beginners lesson at Main Event Grill (September 11, October 9, November 13) before starting this class! See our events page for more.
For continuing beginning students, we recommend you also join the first class of each of our Salsa Suelta series (below) in order to really improve as dancers. Our 12-class pass may be applied to any group class we teach at our studio!
Learn Cuban salsa and other popular dances without partnering and in a choreographic format focusing on footwork, body movement, technique, and musicality. This class is a series, progressing with each class in a monthly series for each month of the fall semester. Series dates are September 7/14/21/28, October 5/12/19/26, and November 2/9/16/23.
The first class in each series (September 7th, October 5th, and November 2nd) is accessible to beginners and covers basic salsa footwork and body movement and a short, easy choreographic combination which will become part of the series routine. Over the next three weeks, the course becomes increasingly heart-pumping and geared toward an intermediate level as the routine is taught and perfected, beginning each week with a review of what was taught the previous week. We will use new music with each month-long series, so if you join us for the entire semester and you can dance routines with three great songs! If you can’t make all the dates, you can purchase sessions individually, and our 12-class pass may be applied to any group class we teach at our studio!
This class will have two instructors in order to focus on complicated partnerwork combinations, lady & man style, and rueda de casino. To enhance the course, and/or in the event that not enough participants are available to make adequate partners, the class may include other popular dances such as rumba, reggaeton, son, and mambo. Dancers must have Cuban salsa experience prior to joining this course!
We recommend dancers take our Salsa Suelta classes in addition to this class, in order to really improve as movers! Our 12-class pass may be applied to any group class we teach at our studio!

Fall 2021 Private Lessons:
Private lessons are a great way to learn any dance we teach at your own pace. Lessons may be for up to 2 people of any age or skill level dancing together.
During the fall of 2021, ask that all dancers come FULLY VACCINATED. If you are not vaccinated, you may attend private lessons while wearing a mask and social distancing. This means that if you would like to dance in partners, you must bring a partner with you.

Additional times may also appear as available on our appointment calendar, so contact us to schedule a time that does not appear as available. A $20 rescheduling fee applies to rescheduled lessons. All lessons must be used within the same semester purchased.
