Course Description

This progressive 6-week series class is intended for beginner students and introduces the salsa on2 basics and foundational concepts. Throughout the six weeks we will continue to focus on timing, musicality, building on the layers of the salsa basic step, learning left and right turns, simple footwork drills, and progressing with introductory partner work techniques that are fundamental to basic On2 salsa.

By the end of the class you will be proficient in:

  • Leading and following steps to a basic salsa rhythm
  • Executing left and right turns with and without a partner
  • Simple footwork drills (side basic, back basic, and other “on-tempo” shines)

You will also be introduced to:

  • Cross-body-lead steps and signaling for both leads and follows
  • Combining steps and changing their direction to create your own shines
