Salsa Classes Descriptions

All our classes are 1 hour per week over 9 weeks unless otherwise specified.

Class Name

Description

Salsa-Nightclub
level 1
Register!

In this introductory course, you will learn three dances: Merengue (nightclub-style) - for 1.25 hours, Bachata - for 1.25 hours, Salsa (Salsa-on-1 style) - for 6.5 hours. You will learn the fundamental footwork, turns and movement of all three dances. We will cover at least 10 figures in Salsa and four to five figures in Merengue and Bachata. By the end of the session, you'll be able to dance an entire Merengue, Bachata, and Salsa song!

   

Salsa-Nightclub
level 2

Building on the figures you learned from level 1, we will turn our attention to cross-body lead variations, right turn and reverse turn variations with emphasis on creating turnpattern combinations and styling. A few additional Bachata figures are also taught.

   

Salsa-Nightclub
level 3
Register!

Now that you can dance the basic figures, we'll teach you Traveling Right-Turn and In & Out variations. We'll also introduce you to double spins and incorporate multiple spins into combinations. Combination work and styling tips are incorporated into every new pattern.

   

Salsa-Nightclub
level 4

You're set to learn some interesting combinations now that you've mastered the first three levels. These include S-turns, Lassos, Spider Turns, and Tunnels. Styling and musicality will be a focus in this level.

   

Salsa-Nightclub
level 5
Register!

Ready for some sexy dancing? It's time to learn the Coca-Cola, Reverse Coca-Cola and check variations. Challenging shines, turnpatterns and styling tips will be demonstrated. Put it all together and soon enough, you'll be the star of the dance floor!

   
   

Specialty Classes

Description

Salsa
Leading-Following
Register!

The secret to smooth and sexy salsa dancing is learning to read your partner's signals. In this class, the man will learn how to give signals and the woman will learn how to follow them. You'll learn how, when, and why you give signals. You will also experience reversing roles for the basic steps so you understand leading and following better. We recommend that you complete Level 2 before enrolling in this class.

   

Salsa
Ladies Styling
Register!

Ladies, this class is just for you! Learn how to incorporate body waves, ripples and shimmies into your salsa dancing. Footwork, body movement, and body styling is emphasized. Add some personality to your dancing while looking sexy and stylish. This class is suitable for those who have completed Level 2 Salsa.

   

Salsa Singles
level 1
Register!

Mix and mingle with young single professionals from the ages of 20-35. The syllabus is the same as Salsa-Nightclub level 1 but the emphasis is on fun and rotating every few minutes.

   

Salsa
Casino Rueda
Register!

Casino Rueda is a form of cuban salsa danced in a round circle with 2 or more couples exchanging partners where one person calls out the turn pattern names. Students must have completed level 2 to participate in this class. Attendance will be strict as any absences will affect the entire circle.

   

Salsa Performance
for Volunteers
Register!

A performance class exclusive to our current Toronto Dance Salsa Volunteers. This 12-week class will focus on creating a choreographed 2.5-minute piece using all the turn patterns and shines learned in level 1-5 to be performed at a future salsa outing.
