Looks like you found our secret hideout. We weren't sure what to put here, so here's a Jeff joke:


What did the pirate say when he turned 80?
"Aye Matey"


(say it out loud.)

CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

SALSA

BACHATA

Salsa Level 1

Take your first salsa steps! Discover the salsa rhythm, basic steps, left and right turns, cross-body leads, inside traveling turns, and simple combinations. You will also learn partnering technique and simple footwork to spice up your dancing!

No prior experience needed, and no partners needed!

Bachata Level 1

Take your first Bachata steps! Our Level 1 course introduces you to the bachata rhythm, basic steps, turns and promenades that are the core of this fun and intimate dance, as well as basic styling elements to add sizzle to your dancing!

No prior experience needed, and no partners needed!

Salsa Level 2

Go beyond the basics! Each 7-week session we introduce a combination of footwork and partnering moves based on common salsa patterns, including double-hand turns, hammerlock holds, wraps, traveling turn variations and more. We also introduce spin technique and body isolation exercises at this level.

Students must be comfortable with all Salsa Level 1 content.

Bachata Level 2

Once you are comfortable with the beginner moves covered in Bachata Level 1, this class takes it up a notch and introduces more complex moves. Mix things up with outside turns, cuddles and hammerlocks, fancy footwork, body isolations and lots of turn patterns and combinations to take straight to the dance floor.

Students must be comfortable with all Bachata Level 1 content.

Salsa Level 3

Once you have mastered ALL the moves we teach in Salsa Level 2, explore the endless combinations salsa has to offer while honing your technique and style. In this class we introduce more complex concepts (such as copas, 360s, multiple spins) and create new footwork and partnering combinations that will make you the star of the dance floor.

Students must be comfortable with all Salsa Level 2 content.

Bachata Level 3

Take your bachata to new heights! Once you have mastered Bachata Level 2, join this intermediate-level class. Learn how to get comfortable with your partner, develop great bachata leading and following technique, and make your dancing stand out from the crowd!

Students must be comfortable with all Bachata Level 2 content.

Salsa Level 4

Once you are comfortable with the types of concepts taught in Salsa – Level 3 and have been dancing salsa for at least a year, come hone your technique, precision, balance, and styling with this in-depth, challenging class. In Level 4, we explore the muscle memory-busting details that make the difference between looking “just ok” and looking like a dance pro.

NOTE: this class will not teach you new turn patterns, nor is it meant to be a replacement for Salsa Level 3. If you’d like to keep learning new salsa patterns while fine-tuning your technique as well, we recommend taking both levels (3 and 4) at the same time.
