Demonstration of footwork and partner dance moves

Here is a video demonstrating the set of steps, concepts and moves that comprise our Cuban Salsa Level 1. They are the absolute basics and foundational elements of this dance. Having the ability to execute these moves well is essential to be able to move to the next levels. If you have previous salsa dance experience and you would like to take a lesson at a higher level, please contact us to book an assessment.

Here is what to expect from an assessment: you would be asked to follow an instructor (for followers), or lead an instructor in the different moves that you are familiar with (for leads). The quality of your footwork, timing, frame and moves execution will give an indication of the most suitable level for you to join. Assessments are free of charge and usually take no more than 10 minutes to complete.
