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 partners needed!

level: no experience needed! This is a beginner class.
shoes: dance shoes, or dress shoes with clean soles. Avoid running shoes.
drop-ins: registration required; drop-ins welcome in the first 2 weeks only.

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. No partners needed!

level: requires comfort with all moves, techniques and concepts taught in Salsa Level 1.
shoes: dance shoes, or dress shoes with clean soles. Avoid running shoes.
drop-ins: registration required; drop-ins welcome in the first 2 weeks only.

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. No partners needed!

level: requires comfort with all moves, techniques and concepts taught in Salsa Level 2.
shoes: suede-soled dance shoes are highly recommended.
drop-ins: registration required; drop-ins welcome in the first 2 weeks only.

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.

Each session will have two areas of focus: one aimed at improving your solo technique (balance, weight transfer, core engagement, spin technique, styling etc), and one aimed at improving partner connection and musicality. Get ready for lots of drills and make sure to set aside some practice time between classes!

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.

level: requires a minimum of one year of Latin dance experience, and familiarity and comfort with the concepts taught in Salsa Level 3.
shoes: dance shoes only.
drop-ins: registration required.
