*Beginning Salsa:  Mambo is the basic step in Salsa.  Salsa Music comes from a fusion of Swing
& Cuban Music.  Our Salsa classes respect those roots in order to enjoy the diversity that the dance offers.  Our basic Salsa class teaches the fundamentals of: 
Salsa (Mambo) Movement, Musicality, Lead and Follow, Framing, Arm Tone & Turns. 
While focusing on technique, our class also offers a variety of nice patterns that our students are taught to lead and follow with elegance and style.
**Intermediate Salsa:  Salsa is Mambo danced to Salsa Music.  While Mambo is said to have originated in Cuba (by way of Africa), the dance we know comes from a fusion of Swing and Cuban Music.  Our Intermediate Salsa class, builds upon and re-inforces technique introduced in our basic class.  Gaining technical competence in your dancing, as opposed to memorizing patterns, allows you to lead/follow with greater ease and originality.  This allows you to get greater enjoyment out of it.  In other words, we teach you how to have fun with the dance!
