Salsa Göteborg

All courses start with a FREE TRIAL lesson. Neither prior knowledge or registration needed – just show up and rise to the challenge 🙂 Registration and payment for courses takes place at the first regular dance class – that is the first lesson after the free trial lesson.

Beginners Class

Prerequisites: A good mood!

Course Content: The course is 13 x 60 minutes

In the beginners course, we learn the different basic steps in the Cuban salsa style casino and the foundations of the variant Rueda de Casino. The idea is to be able to be spontaneous and dynamic in the dance, keeping the basic steps, but sprucing it up with different figures. The focus is on the special rhythm and body movements of the Cuban salsa. We practice together on easier figures that you can use out on the dance floor!

The Cuban salsa movement patterns are based on the dancers moving around each other in a “cuadrado” (square) and from their various positions making various figures, for example the women’s “abajo”, “marcar casino” and “enchufla”. In addition, we review the basics of rueda de casino figures, for example. “dile que no”, “dame”, “arriba tiempo España”, “pa’tras”, “una con una” and “tarro”.

Intermediate Class

Prerequisites: Completed beginners class.

Course Content: The course is 13 x 60 minutes

Once the basic steps and the Cuban salsa rhythm is learned, it’s time to move on to the intermediate course. Here we learn how to do more advanced figures, still with the same concept of dynamic dancing and spontaneity.

We go through the figures “setenta”, “setenta y medio”, “setenta y cuarto”, “ochenta”, “dame dos con dos”. Furthermore, we develop various forms of “enchufla” figures such as “enchufla doble”, “enchufla uno a cinco” etc.

The course is a fun challenge that you can take several times until you master the many combinations of figures and rhythms of salsa dancing!

Intermediate Class

Prerequisites: Completed intermediate class.

Course Content: The course is 13 x 60 minutes

After a few intermediate courses when you feel ready to challenge your brain, it is time to shift gears and step it up.

We develop earlier figures by reversing them, “al contrario”, and dancing them the other way, “con la de arriba”.

Here, you really need to know the steps and rythm by heart so you can concentrate when it gets complex, but it is also extra fun!

 

The figures above are only a few examples of what we will go through to show the possibilities the Cuban salsa offers!
