What to Expect:
On arrival you pay a lesson fee and receive a sticker as receipt of payment. Grab a drink at the bar, find a seat and get chatting to the other Salsa-Holics. You will know when we are about to start as one of the appointed instructors will be calling you to join in. The instructors will teach the 1st half of a routine and then all dance to a song, with a break for 5 minutes. After the break the 2nd half of the routine is taught and danced/practised to another song. To end we have a warm down song (old and new students are expected to join in). We then encourage students to stay after the class, practice and enjoy the Salsa Rhythms.
What to Wear:
To start off with it is not necessary to go out and buy dance shoes, but just to let you know - rubber soles e.g. takkies are not advised as you tend to stick to the floor. Office work shoes for men go down well and for the ladies a bit of a heel helps you into your turns. Ladies - please Do Not wear loose sandals or flip flops. Dress is Smart/Casual.
When to move up:
Level 1: Beginners
You must have completed 4 to 5 beginner lessons, before moving on to level 2. You also need to practice the moves after classes. With no practice, you will not improve. After class, turn to the first person you see and ask them for a dance. Once you are completely comfortable with the basic Salsa steps and turns, you may move on to level 2.
Level 2: Improvers
Improvers is a very important class. Here you learn the starter moves to the advance moves, giving you the best foundation to be a great advanced dancer. So dont rush this class, stick it out! In this class we have a 7 week syllabus, which you need to have completed the syllabus 3 times before even considering moving to the next class. Here it is always advised to ask your instructor if they think you are ready to move up another level.
Level 3: Intermediate/Advanced
In this level, we teach you new sequences every week, giving you new ideas to put into your dancing. You are not expected to remember every thing, but make sure you take away one new move, and practice it after class and try to implement it at the next Salsa Party.
