How Salsa classes works:

Sessions are six weeks in length. Classes are one hour.  Full payment is due at the first class of each session (cash preferable).  We teach L.A. on1 style salsa as the main focus for partner dancing with some Cuban and N.Y. Mambo on2 style adding more flare and flavor to your dancing.  Singles welcome, partners rotate during class.  Before taking the Intermediate level class, you must take one Beginner session or more (handled on a case by case basis).  Couples welcome who want to dance with each other solely

Classes focus on:

Rhythm and timing of the music and in the dance, leading and following technique, styling, shines/footwork, turns, body centered awareness, Harmony on and off the dance floor, and most importantly, FUN!
