How to request to play with a friend or two

Sport Info

Throughout this first level, students ease into the swing of things with a quick study of salsa rhythm and tempo, and then promptly move into the basic salsa steps and turns. Special focus is devoted to lead-follow communication, which is how social dancing works on-the-fly rather than simply executing a set sequence of pre-determined moves. By the end of the Beginner 1 level (after just seven weekly classes), students will have learned the following moves:

  • Basic
  • Backsteps
  • Cubans
  • Right turn for follows
  • Right turn for leads
  • Traveling left turn

This is the very tip of as large an iceberg as students are interested in exploring, all of which can be done right here in Halifax with Halifax Salseros School of Latin Dance. 

About Us:  Halifax Salseros is the leading Latin dance school east of Montreal. Instructors Danny Godfrey and Cindy Davis have been performing and teaching Salsa, Bachata, Rueda de Casino, and several other dances for more than 15 years. Their training is extensive, having studied in Toronto, Montreal, Cuba, Puerto Rico, New York and beyond.

No experience is necessary to begin classes with Halifax Salseros. Their innovative curriculum starts students from scratch, building confidence and competence quickly and intuitively throughout their detail-oriented program. From there, students hit the ground running, enjoying a progressive series of intermediate and advanced levels. Classes address all sorts of aspects of dance, including rhythm, moves, lead-follow communication, styling, etc.
