How it works

About this class

This class focuses on students who are new to Cuban Salsa. Cuban Salsa is a partner dance that is a combination of Rumba and Son. In this class, Alvaro introduces the basic footwork, style and musicality of Salsa before moving on to more complicated turns and patterns and what it means to lead/follow. You do not need to bring your own partner. Wear anything that you feel comfortable moving in - from heels to sneakers to jazz shoes!  Although students may drop in at any time, it is recommended to start the class on the FIRST Monday of every month if possible as the class is progressive. Below is an *example* of a typical curriculum for the month. Please note that the curriculum varies depending on the needs of the class. 1st Monday: Basic steps and rhythm, outside turn and cross body lead. 2nd Monday: Inside turn (Enchufla), Llevala Abajo, Exhibe, cross body lead into Cuban basic step (Dile Que No y Guapea). 3rd Monday: Start putting combination moves together using moves from the previous weeks. 4th Monday: Combination moves and review from previous weeks. If the month has five weeks we will add more turns or review turns from previous weeks. If the month has five weeks we will add more turns or review turns from previous weeks.

Beginning Cuban Salsa with Alvaro
Fun, busy class with a really nice group of people. Alvaro broke down each step and everyone learned a lot in an hour and a half. Nice to dance with many different partners and levels. So convenient by BART too. I'll be back!
