What is Salsa 1?

After you've learned the basics of Salsa, and you're confident with the steps, it's time to learn the moves you can use at the Latin Parties!

Salsa 1 is our four-week course that turns Beginners into Dancers!

If you enjoyed the moves in the Free Beginners class, had fun dancing with other Beginners, and want to be able to go to any Latin party and dance with people around the world, then this is definitely for you!

By the end of the course,

you will:

  • Learn how to lead / follow socially

Leading and following is the magic of partner dancing! This allows you to dance with anyone, anywhere, even if you don't speak the same language!

  • Be able to dance on rhythm with the music

Absolutely crucial for every dancer, of every dance style! We'll teach you to be able to hear and feel the beat.

  • Add a whole series of new moves to your repertoire

We'll teach you some of the most popular and commonly danced moves at the parties, which are the foundation of more advanced moves later!

  • Know how to dance safely and enjoyably for your partner

As well as connection and respecting your partner, we'll also teach you how to be a safe dancer for the people around you!

  • Make a whole new crew of friends!

Dancing with the same group of people, all starting from the same point, and all towards the same goals, sharing moments and having fun're bound to make new dance friends!

We're super excited to dance Salsa with you!

When we first started dancing and then eventually teaching Salsa, there wasn't a consistent, reliable way to make sure beginners were able to learn. Most of the time it was a coin-flip whether a student would become a dancer or not.

So we developed our step-by-step program to help even the most inexperienced dancer learn everything they needed to know to get on the dance floor and have other dancers wanting and waiting to dance with them!

Our philosophy is: Dancing is for Everybody!

So come along, join the course, and surprise yourself!

See you on the dance floor...

- Arti and Dani

Warning: Salsa is addictive!
