Every Tuesday | 6:30-7:30pm
This class taught by Rico Bravo is geared for students who are developing a foundation in the basic step, rhythm, and timing. 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. Learn the conservation of energy theory from the award-winning inventor of the clock system himself. All advanced moves are an extension of the basic. If someone's fundamentals are not technically correct, the student will just learn more and more combinations incorrectly and will not progress as a dancer. Therefore, this is the most important class for anyone wishing to learn salsa. Mastery of the basics will give you the skills and confidence needed to develop into a good dancer. Believe me, it will change your life.
