Salsa: Cross Body Style
Salsa Class Levels and Structure
All new attendees should be evaluated before the classes to participate at the correct level! The suggestion below is for students training with Salsatropical®.
Level 1 – Beginners
From 1 – 2 Months of Training
This Level is geared toward students learning the basic step, rhythm, and timing. You get an introduction to Salsa steps and simple partner work. It’s a lot of FUN!
Level 2 – Beginners 2
From 1-3 Months of Training
This Level is geared toward students who have already learned the basic steps as absolute beginner students. This is a continuation from the absolute beginners level. The focus is mainly on partner work.
Level 3 – Improvers 1
From 3 – 6 Months of Training
You should have completed at least 12-16 hours to attend this Level. The series focuses on the fundamentals of salsa: basics, patterns, footwork, turns and technique, which includes proper posture, balance, and upper/lower body coordination. This lays the groundwork for a solid foundation in salsa. We will focus mainly on the fundamentals of partner work. All advanced moves are an extension of the basic. If a student lacks fundamentals, he will just learn more and more combinations technically incorrectly and will not progress as a dancer. Therefore, this is the most important class for anyone wishing to learn Salsa. Mastering the basics will give you the skills and confidence needed to become a good dancer. Believe me; it will change your life.
Level 4 – Improvers 2
Level 5 – Intermediate
From 10 Months of Experience
We advise this level after 6-8 months of classes of 1 hour per week at least. This is geared towards students with a solid, comprehensive foundation in the basics (balance, posture, upper/lower body coordination, weight transfer, cross-body lead). You will learn lead-follow techniques, transitions and space management to moderate music. You are ready for this class if you already have a solid understanding of the basics. We will teach you skills necessary to apply in Intermediate and Advanced level classes, such as essential skills and drills.
Level 6 – Advanced
From One Year Dancing Onwards
This quality training programme is for students with a well-developed foundation in Salsa. They are willing to learn more complex patterns and techniques and emphasise styling for Ladies and Gents. This Level is for you if you are ready to take the next step.
