What is Salsa - Why do I want to learn it?
Salsa is the ultimate partner dance!
Great clubs, great people and great music.
It's exciting, inspiring and
What are the benefits of learning to dance?
There are almost too many to mention!
If I had to boil it down to a handful of reasons why you must at least give it a
Incredible Social Benefits - Meet
tons of people! Far more than you could in any other medium. Ask
anyone who has tried it. The social benefits, for both men and women, are
second to none.
It will aid you in life - in way's you
can't possibly imagine before trying it. You become better at work, more
focused, more fulfilled, and
far more self confident! You'll carry yourself in an entirely different
Get a workout - You'll get in
great shape, increasing co-ordination and flexibility.
Connection with other people,
Community - For many, Salsa Dancing will get you in touch with a fantastic,
diverse and fun group of people, and it allows you to form a connection with
another person (while dancing) that is rare in today's society. It's
called partner dancing for a reason, and there is nothing quite like having a
dance, with someone you've just met (or you've known for years), which allows
you to share such happiness and joy. Being one with the music!
More fun than you've ever had
- That's quite a lofty benefit, but for many, they find that Salsa Dancing is
just the element that has been missing from their lives. No single type of
dance is for everyone, but Salsa is a lot (and I mean A LOT) of fun
I'll stop there, but there are so
many other reasons! As I sit here writing this, more and more reasons pop
into my head of why people, anyone, should learn to dance. Hopefully I've
provided enough reasons to at least have you take the first step.
Why Private Lessons?
Private Lessons are the QUICKEST way
to learn your basics, or to improve your intermediate skills! If you want
to learn how to dance in a reasonable amount of time, privates will get you
there faster. When
combined with group classes, private lessons can get you dancing very quickly.
It's important to do BOTH private lessons, and group classes. Neither one,
done in isolation, offers the greatest benefit. If you want to learn, and
you've got no time to spare, you'll follow SalsaCrazy's basic "Salsa
BootCamp" Schedule, which is:
2 Privates a Week.
At least 1 group Lesson a week (with
1 Night of Dancing (minimum).
When taking your privates with
SalsaCrazy, all your question get answered!
What are you going to get?
Everything you need to feel confident
on the dance floor. The goal in these classes is to get people to a point
where they can have a good time - able to dance with anyone, at any time, to any
We cover a lot of basic structure and technique - centering on the details and
fundamental lessons of salsa dancing (and partner dancing)! Why details?
The faster you get to a point where you understand the basic techniques and
fundamental structure of the dance, the faster you can develop your own style.
The goal is to be able to go out there and have fun with anyone on the dance
floor. You'll be able to dance with confidence and style with a rote beginner
up to a professional dancer.
Hearing the Music!
Expressing yourself through the music (a.k.a. STYLE)
I can certainly teach you MY style. I can even teach you someone else's
style! However, the goal is to get people to a point where they can
develop their OWN style. Style is a form of expression that comes from
you. Deep inside! The goal is to get you to a place where your
individual style comes out, and looks good! This doesn't happen overnight.
In fact, to be honest, it can take years. However, from these lessons you
will take away all of the skills necessary to build and grow yourself as a
dancer, & you'll have a great time along the way!
Attitude, Confidence and Fun:
This is what it's all about!
Getting people out on the dance floor with a positive attitude, confidence,
ready to have a great time! Leaders: All the skills necessary to carry yourself confidently on the
dance floor. Be able to dance with any follower! Followers: Dance with any leader! Feel the lead, any lead, and have
the speed to follow it.
