Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

What style of Salsa is taught on My Salsa Online?

We teach Salsa On2 style, which is also commonly referred to as “NY style”.

How do I determine my level?

Beginner is for the student who has never taken any formal classes or is just starting out and wants to learn the concepts of timing, leading and/or following techniques, and basic turn patterns.

Advanced Beginner is for the student who has taken at least 4-6 months of consecutive classes, is very familiar with the On2 timing, and is able to lead and/or follow basic turns, cross body leads, and traveling turns with different hand variations.Intermediate is for the student who already has experience on the dance floor and has a strong understanding of the On2 timing.

The Intermediate student is comfortable leading and/or following different and more challenging turn patterns and is able to sync their dancing with the music. An intermediate student is ready to be challenged with more complicated techniques and turn patterns.
