Learn How To Dance Salsa From the Comfort of Your Home!
This course is for students who are Absolute Beginners and want to learn the Fundamentals of Salsa or for those who Dance Salsa On1 and want to transition to Salsa On2 "NY Style".
We will help you master your fundamentals so you gain the confidence you need to look and feel smooth on the dance floor. The course is progressive so we will build upon each week to give you the muscle memory you need to advance.
Even if you don't have a partner, you can work on the solo steps that will get you ready for the dance floor and to dance with any level partner!
As we get deeper into the course material, you will be able to create more challenging turn patterns and shines as you master the fundamentals. Walk away with a skill set for life!
We will work on basic steps & turns, practice exercises and drills. This will help make you look less mechanical and become more grounded & fluid as you connect the steps to the music. Once we understand the Salsa rhythm and create muscle memory in our steps we can become quicker, precise and more controlled in our steps and turns.
We cover our first set of Shines, the different connections in partnering and learn about the different hand variations you can use in the right turn. The main focus is to keep the control and master the right turn footwork and keep the connection to your partner to be able to react to hand changes while continuing to connect to the rhythm!
We cover more Shines and learn about the different hand variations you can use in the left turn. The main focus is to keep the control and master the left turn footwork and keep the connection to your partner to be able to react to hand changes while continuing to connect to the rhythm! We put our first Turn Combo together!
We work on more Shines that help with control, timing and balance!
Learn the Cross Body Lead with different hand positions and different connections with your partner. We move into a longer turn pattern combo to start implementing what we have learned so far!
Time to start traveling with your turns! We learn the breakdown of the Outside turn and how to properly lead and follow all while remaining connected to your partner and the music. Learn how to gain the control of your turns while traveling and add more dynamic!
We cover the Inside Turn and different hand variations to make this turn look fluid and different each time! We also cover specific techniques of each traveling turns so you can differentiate between the two and learn how to lead and/or follow better without memorizing!
Now that we have built our Shine repertoire, it's time to Jam! We also cover some important tips to understand how and when we use them and how to get into them and out of them on the dance floor! We then get into a more complex turn pattern using our traveling turns!
This is Transformation time! Using all of the tools and techniques throughout the course, building off a great foundation, we want you to get creative with us! We then show you how this can progress into more intricate turn patterns getting you ready for the next levels!
The Private Facebook group will be to communicate and ask Joel & Maria any questions you may have about the Bootcamp training. You'll also be able to share videos of you practicing and ask for feedback and tips to improve.
Joel and Maria's instructional method is clear, easy to understand, and most importantly, easily applicable on the dance floor. The passion Joel and Maria have for dancing and teaching shines through their instructional videos and makes learning their techniques a fun and rewarding experience. I recommend their course to everyone!

I would definitive would recommend it to anyone that want to start dancing or improve it. Love the way you guys were explaining everything from the beginning to end with great details. I already told my husband that this would be very good for him to practice at home, great deal.
