BEGINNER ONLY CLASSES & SPECIAL WORKSHOPS
MONDAYS IN JULY ARE FOR NEW BEGINNERS!
New Course: Starts 1 July 2019
@ Whitehouse Hotel, Wellington
COST: £15 for 5 weeks which includes a salsa social too!
Class from 7.15pm then practice, individual tuition & dancing until closing.
Special Fast Track 5 week progressive course for beginners at a really great price & designed to prepare you for the Level 2 weekly drop-in classes which also take place at same time. Ideal for those who want to learn to dance more quickly, needing to learn to dance for a special occasion such as a prom night, wedding or work function. It is also suitable for Cuban dancers who wish to learn the fundamentals for cross body style salsa. You do not have to be part of a couple to book as unlike ballroom dancing, this is improvised freestyle salsa, not set routines & dancers move round in classes to enable more inter-action.
Future dates for 2019 will be posted up when finalised.
Beginner classes are the most important you will ever do. Drop-in classes for beginners involve a lot of repetition as new people always have to be accommodated every week so progress is slower. From experience, a short course or workshop is one of the best & more interesting ways for beginners to learn any form of dance as they are more progressive & prepare you well for the weekly Monday drop-in classes.
Those with a strong foundation tend to find their future progress much easier so moving to higher level classes is less stressful & a much smoother experience too! Dance should be fun both for yourself & with every partner; it is a great night out & not meant to be a competition, so don't rush things. There is no point having lots of flash moves if the underlying basic skills are lacking; it is not a pleasant experience either for the lead or follower & is how injuries occur. A highly skilled dancer makes it look easy but it has taken them several years & there are no short cuts; you need to have the mindset of a marathon runner & train for the long haul! To become a competent social dancer takes less time but it still requires the same approach!
OTHER CLASSES & WORKSHOPS
There is a lot to learn in the salsa family of dances and it is impossible to teach everything in a weekly class. Special workshops for development purposes in addition to the drop-in sessions are available @ All Saints on Weds so check out the relevant page for more details.
Private tuition at a reasonable hourly rate is also on the menu for individuals, couples, small groups, prom dancing & dance tuition for wedding dances too; allow yourself four weeks if possible for wedding dances in order to really impress your guests if you have never danced before!
