Level 1 classes are intended for beginners and less-experienced dancers. Each class works on several basic concepts essential for social salsa dancing including rhythm and timing, basic footwork and turns, and lead-follow connection. Figures taught in Level 1 follow an eight week rotation and include the cross-body lead, right and left spot turns, and inside and outside progressive turns. It is recommended that students attend a minimum of eight level one classes before moving to Level 2.
No partner is required, partners rotate. Please understand that the number of leaders and followers may fluctuate from week-to-week; there is no guarantee you will have a partner to dance with at all times. If you bring a partner and would prefer to dance together, that is fine.
