Salsa

What is Salsa?

HOT! HOT! HOT! Bring the 'sauce' into your partner dancing and learn the basic foot patterns and turns of this sensual, steamy and easy-to-learn dance. With its Latin and Afro-Cuban roots, slinky body movement, and variety of patterns, it's no wonder Salsa is the most popular dance we teach.

Listed below are the Salsa classes we offer. We don't always offer every class, so make sure to check the Class Schedule to see what is offered each session.

HOT! HOT! HOT! Bring the 'sauce' into your partner dancing and learn the basic foot patterns and turns of this sensual, steamy and easy-to-learn dance. With its Latin and Afro-Cuban roots, slinky body movement, and variety of patterns, it's no wonder this is the most popular dance we teach.
Salsa 1 Crash Course is the same class, just taught in 3 weeks (4 hours total).

Salsa 1 Couples Only
None

This class covers the same material as Salsa 1 in a non-rotating format. Great for a couples night out or two friends wanting to learn to dance together!

Salsa 2a/b
Salsa 1 or equivalent experience

(Salsa 2a and 2b can be taken in either order or concurrently.) After you've mastered the basics and feel ready to step up your sauciness, Salsa 2a and 2b will help you achieve just that: more advanced steps and techniques coupled with increasingly complex arm and feet patterns. These classes focus on different material and can be taken in either order. For those of you who can't get enough and are itching to get to the next level, Salsa 2a and 2b may also be taken during the same class session.

Salsa 3a/b/c/d
Salsa 2a AND 2b at least one time each

(Salsa 3a-d can be taken in any order.) Ready to add a little extra flavor to your Cross-Body Lead Inside Turns? In Salsa 3 we teach you more complicated patterns that will put the sizzle in your Salsa. Double spins (for the leads as well), Copas, Texas Tommies, and much more! We have five sections of this class (Salsa 3a, Salsa 3b, etc...) that rotate from month to month and which you may take in any order and as many times as you want!

Salsa 4
Salsa 3 four times (in any combination) or instructor permission

It's time to take the next step in your Salsa journey! Challenge yourself with complex, yet leadable patterns for the social dance floor. Curriculum changes each session so you'll never be bored!!
