Sport Info

Throughout the Beginner 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 Recreational level (after just seven weekly classes), students will have learned the following moves:

Steps:

- Basic

- Backsteps

- Cubans

- Right turn

- Left turn

- He goes/she goes right

- He goes/she goes left

- Traveling left turn

- Traveling left with catches

- Cross-body lead

- Catwalk

- Around the world

- Side basic

- Side basic with turns

 

Concepts:

- Rhythm

- Lead-follow communication

- Lane & lane navigation

- Weight distribution & inertia control

- Beginner styling (e.g., arm control)
