Salsa New York offers 3 levels of group classes
Level 1 is an introductory course, which gives a foundation of movement for students who have had little or no dance experience. In this course, students will learn the basics. Emphasis will be on the development of partnering skills, lead and follow, the basic principles of timing, as well as basic foot work and variations of simple turn patterns.
We suggest between 3 and 6 months in Level 1 before you move on to the next Level.
Level 2 is a continuation for students who have completed Level 1 or possess a good understanding of the basic patterns as well as, variations of simple turns and the principles of timing and partnering. Emphasis will be on the continuing development of partnering skills, lead and follow, dance floor etiquette, a good understanding of timing, and the ability to execute simple sequences. New steps and turn patterns will be introduced and linked together to develop new combinations.
The Level 3 focus will refine and reinforce the principles and technique taught in the previous Levels. Emphasis will be on new and more challenging combinations to add to an already existing dance repertoire. Timing will constantly be reinforced which will aid the student in their ability to combine various combinations with ease.
