Training exercises used in every class will be drawn from fundamental dance techniques used in ballet, jazz, ballroom, hip hop and salsa in order to present a clear and effective process for achieving total body control.
For beginners, the class teaches variations in head, arm, and body movement that can be used to enhance simple salsa floorwork patterns. Isolation exercises and training routines will be drawn from other dance disciplines to encourage flexibility, body control, and rhythm. The goal of this aspect of the course is to enable students to improvise floorwork sequences on the dance floor with style and confidence.
For intermediate dancers, the lessons provide a comprehensive method for building body balance, momentum, and control when executing multiple spins in salsa. Turn drills designed after proven ballet and jazz spinning techniques will introduce and reinforce the skills needed to execute multiple spins in salsa dance both with and without a partner.
