Salsa dancers enjoying a dance class

Classes resume 18/01/2023

Wednesday night is all about the fun and sexy Latin dance style of Salsa. With two levels of classes you are welcome whether you have never danced before or are more experienced. All classes are held at the Christ Church Hall, 265 Moorabool Street in the Geelong CBD. Entry is from the south side of the building. The Hall is fully air conditioned with a great dance floor. All classes combine tuition with dedicated time for social dance practice making for a great night out with friends.

Levels

6:30-7:30pm - Latin Salsa (First Timer / Beginner Level)

This class is the perfect place to start if you have never danced before or are just new to this particular dance style. At this level you will be taught the foundation footwork that we then apply to the rhythm of the music. As your sense of timing develops we will introduce the principles of leading and following, enabling you to dance with a partner. You will learn a short combinations of moves, including simple turns, that are progressively developed into a brief routine.


8:00-9:00pm - Latin Salsa (Improver / Intermediate Level)

When you are ready for this class you have becoming quite the confident dancer but still know there is much more you can learn. You no longer worry about your feet as they naturally keep rhythm with the music as you move on the dance floor. You also have a good connection with your dance partner, offering clear, confident and well-timed leads or light and responsive following. In this class you will learn more complicated combinations with different hand and footwork variations. These are progressively developed into brief routines. You will be introduced to footwork shines, hand styling and incorporating body isolation to put that extra bit of ‘attitude’ in your dancing. You will also learn how to successfully execute multiple turns and simple dips for that added ‘wow’ factor. You will notice an increase in the tempo of the music but your more compact footwork means it requires little to no extra effort.
