    Getting Ready for Spring Salsa Cleaning…

    So February is over and we’re soon enough it’ll be time to pack up the mittens and do some Spring Cleaning. Winter has always been tough for me, but I find that Salsa helps make it easier. Here are the few things that have put a smile on my face over the past few months…

    Smooth Cola’s
    I’m so proud of the students in our Level 5 Class! I remember at the beginning of this semester, that I had made a personal pact to help as many guys get their cola’s down as possible. Thanks to an amazing helping team as well as Sara’s awesome instruction, I feel like we really got the guys doing smooth Colas. It takes a lot of dedication to learn this move and these students really put their all into taking their dance to the next level.

    Valentines is the New Hallowe’en
    If you didn’t make it out to the TDS Valentines Event, then you really missed out on a night that was truly amazing! From really sexy combo from Sharon & Evan, amazing performances (esp Tracie & Daniels’ Tango) to the fact that there was a line-up to get in by 9:30; our V-day party has become the biggest night of the year for Acrobat and one not to be missed!

    Bachata Fest Represent!
    While I’ve taken a personal break from performing, it was great to be able to watch the Bachata Helpers rock the stage at the Bachata Fest! Looking sexy in blue and dapper in black; the Helpers brought out the romance and much love was in the air. While I missed being on stage, I was so proud to see the team show the Salsa world, how we do!

    Salsa Friends
    Winter is really tough, but the friends I’ve made from TDS have really been there for me. I have some really great memories from Acrobat, laughing at Empress and rocking out at Venice. Sometimes I feel that what’s truly great about Salsa isn’t the dance; but the people you meet while dancing.

    Get Ready For Spring!
    So get ready to smile as you can now sign-up for Spring classes!!! I’d recommend doing it soon as I hear some classes are going fast. There’s nothing better than that feeling of not wearing a Winter Coat while heading to a Salsa Class/Social… so enjoy your March break and get ready for another season of serious Salsa Classes!

    Till Then,
    Staying Shining Salseros!

    Salsa Spring Celebration: Are you signed up for Salsa, Cha Cha, Raggaeton and more?

    Are you signed up for what looks like one of the best season of class offerings of classes at Toronto Dance Salsa? If you’ve got  the Winter blues, or you just need an energetic pick-me-up, here’s a sampler of the classes that are being offered:

    Casino Rueda Workshop & Social:
    In case you haven’t read my previous post about how much I enjoyed the first Casino workshop, let me just say that everyone who took this class had a blast! Learn a ton of Cuban moves (that can easily transfer into your regular salsa routine) and dance with everyone in a large circle. It’s rapid, it’s super fun and taught by Tracie & Daniel!

    Bachata, 9 week course (already SOLD OUT!!!) :
    As soon as I saw the class being offered, I quickly signed up. Lucky I did as it sold out so quickly that there’s a waiting list!!! Only goes to show that after taking the winter off from Salsa, people are back in action and taking multiple classes!

    Cha Cha, 9 week course ( 3 Women needed until it sells out!!) :
    Another hot course, Cha Cha is going fast! If you’ve ever wanted to learn this sexy dance or are tired of sitting out each time they play a Cha Cha song, then you’ve got to check out this course!

    Student Performance Class :
    Feel nervous about performing? Don’t worry, I did too… but I’m loving the Helper Performance Team classes and can guarantee that you will too! It’s made me a better dance in all regards and it’s been amazing learning from Tracie and hanging with tons of great Toronto Dance Salsa dancers! Trust me, once you hear the crowd cheering you on you will be as hooked as Miro and Julia!

    Raggaeton Funk Class :
    In case you missed the episode of eTalk, Tracie was teaching Raggaeton to Leah Miller of SYTYCD!!! I love, love, love Raggaeton and am looking forward to this course! Learn how to tear up the dance floor to the music of Daddy Yankee, Pitbull, Winsin Y Yandel! Focusing on body isolations, styling and co-ordination, you’ll be owning on the dance floor in no time! 

    Salsa Levels 1-6 :
    Have you signed up for your next level yet? Trust me, sign up soon as they tend to go just as quickly as our specialty courses!

    Ok, I’ve got to go and sign up for Raggaeton…
    till then,

    Stay Shining Salseros!
