Our philosophy is that Salsa should firstly be fun and enjoyable
and part of that enjoyment is related to listening and responding
to the music. Salsa Latina has a structured programme for its
Salsa dancing classes.
These are crucial for progressing to the next level and once dancers have mastered
the foundations of the beginners salsa classes, they are also encouraged to develop
their own styles.
The other principle aim is to encourage and develop followers and leaders confidence
on the dance floor by teaching a range of techniques that will enable them to
develop these dance skills.
Salsa is sociable, healthy, cultural and above all fun! There is absolutely no
need to have had any experience for the beginners Salsa classes as the focus
is on the basic steps, rhythm and style necessary to progress to the next levels.
The teachers observe everyone and take care to offer advice and help to allow
them to learn salsa to the best of their ability. working hard to promote a relaxed
environment where everyone can ask questions both during the classes and afterwards.
Everyone will progress at different rates, some will find it very easy to learn
the basic steps whereas others may take a few weeks, but everyone can dance salsa
eventually even if they believe they have two left feet or no rhythm.
The main way to progress is by practicing regularly with other good dancers during
Salsa Parties and events after the beginners salsa classes have finished or practicing
After a few weeks of regular attendance you will feel confident with the steps
and will probably be ready for progressing to the next level!
