Adult group classes

Tuesdays, 6-7 pm: Intermediate/Advanced Salsa Suelta
This class will focus on learning dynamic choreography, choosing and using independent styling options, and recognizing musical rhythms and structures, with a new routine taught each month to a new song. It is expected that students can already do the basic steps of Cuban salsa with good body coordination and are familiar with basic Cuban popular dance movements drawn from rumba, mambo, son, and others. This class does not involve any partnering.
Dancers can join anytime, but the class is progressive over 4 weeks, with material start dates on August 16, September 13, and October 11. It is recommended that dancers start on these dates.

Tuesdays, 7-830 pm: Intermediate/Advanced Salsa
This class will focus on fun combinations of Cuban salsa partner work movements and figures with varying speeds of music, and will also include dynamic ruedas de casino. Dancers should already feel comfortable with basic Cuban salsa steps, partner changes in the rueda de casino, and they should know most basic casino basic figures well (sombrerosetentavacilalasacala, and many others). Some classes may focus on exclusively partnerwork or exclusively rueda de casino, while others might combine partnerwork and a short salsa suelta combination to use while dancing in partners, and others might be a mix.

Wednesdays, 6-7 pm: Beginner Salsa Suelta
This class will focus on essential body movement coordination, the basic steps and turns that are essential to Cuban salsa partnerwork, and simple Cuban dance movements sourced from popular dances, which will all be combined with music in easy patterns.

A note about group class levels:
Although we do adjust our classes to teach to everyone present, is your responsibility to attend classes at the right level for you. Here are some handy descriptions to help you choose the right class.
Beginner: You are a brand new dancer, brand new to salsa, or brand new to Cuban salsa partner work. We suggest all new students start here! Some will advance the same evening, while others might take this class on an ongoing basis.
Advanced beginner: When dancing without partners, you are familiar with salsa of any style and can coordinate basic steps like forward and back, side to side, and enchufla step. You are working on cruzado variations and right and left turns. For partner work classes, you are familiar with the Cuban dile que no, guapea, and enchufla, and are now working on learning our basic casino repertoire of partnered movements.
Intermediate: You are ready for more challenging footwork and body movement combinations and would like to explore other Cuban dances within the salsa framework with faster music. For partner work classes, you feel comfortable with partner changes in the rueda de casino and you know most of your casino basic moves well (sombrero, setenta, vacilala, sacala, and many others) and are ready to combine these movements in dynamic ways.
Advanced: You’ve got a few years of dance experience, you love to social dance, and perhaps you’re ready for choreography, but more importantly – you know enough to know how much there is yet to learn, and you recognize that you must continue to go back to square one to perfect your basic steps, body movement coordination, style, and much more. Really!
