Beginners:
The main focus for this level is on: dance fundamentals including leading and following, technique, posture, musicality and embrace. introducing basic combinations of moves.


Improvers:
This level follows on from the beginners classes, teaching more fundamentals of dynamic movements and developing more sophisticated and improvised combinations, building from the basics learnt in beginners level. floorcraft skills and musicality.

Intermediate / advanced:

These levels follow on from Improvers and further expand the dynamic movements of Salsa, including spins, free spins (also covered in a separate spins workshop) and combinations of movements to create a smooth and dynamic flow to your dancing. building on each previous level to get you looking like a pro in no time!


Private lessons
Taking private lessons will accelerate your learning and combined with regular class attendance will help you to be confident on the dance floor and a great way to catch up on anything you were unclear about or missed in previous group lessons, or if you're the super shy
