SPECIAL SALSA Workshop
with Dance Instructor MICHAEL on JUNE 11th at Salsa Room @ FCC
This workshop is designed to improve your current Salsa partnering techniques and to improve your following and leading skills and to better understand the rhythm of Salsa.
We'll guarantee that you'll take away new information enabling you to have a completely different perspective on how you dance and how your dance affects others.
What you can Expect?
This workshop is designed to help you become better skilled and more efficient dancers.
The ethos of the day is not just "what" but "how" and "why". You will go away with the knowledge of how to lead and follow effectively and why it all works.
During the workshops you'll learn a whole host of exercises that you can take away and practice to help you continue improving your dancing after the day. We can't turn you into a BMW or a F1 driver in one day but we can give you the tools to help achieve this.
A great deal of what will be taught will be unique not just in concept and content but also in delivery. So – be prepared for a unique experience.
What you cannot Expect?
This is not a regular Salsa class where you will learn new patterns and complex movements. We will not go into new turn pattern or shine routines; in fact we will spend a considerable time without music! The workshops will look into into the techniques and we will teach you how and why they all work.
Who is it for?
The Workshop will last 2 hours plus a 15 minute break to relax your feet. There will also be individual time for questions and answers.
Within the two hours we will cover the following topics:
a) The Principles of Lead and Follow
The workshop looks into the fundamental principles of lead and follow. Exercises and coaching are given on the "what", "how" and "why" of lead and follow. A turn pattern is not taught and only a basic Cross Body Lead, Right Turn, Pivot Turn footwork are required elements.
Topics include: Dance frame, connection, arm tone, hook, the importance of lead elbow, body not arm leads, dance distance, plus much more.
b) The Fundamentals of Partnering Combinations
The workshop concentrates on the basic turn combination building blocks, what they are and how to lead and follow them well. The workshops also include a look at how to link them together while sticking on the rhythm. This is not a turn combination workshop but rather a workshop about how to create turn combinations!
Topics include: Inside and Outside Turns, Copa, Basic Left Turn, Basket Turn, Exchange of Places, Basic Hand changes

What to wear?
It’s important to feel comfortable and be able to move easily, so avoid floor length skirts or restrictive clothes. The teacher wants to see your beautiful feet!
Any comfortable shoes that don’t fall off are fine, but you may consider learning in the same shoes you might wear on the dance floor or a night out. Flat shoes and high heels are both acceptable, but it’s recommended to avoid flip-flops.
