Course Levels

This Salsa Course is geared for students who are learning the basic step, rhythm, and timing. You get an introduction to Salsa steps and simple partner-work. It’s a lot of FUN!
This Salsa Course is geared for students who have already learned the basic steps as an absolute beginner student.  This is a continuation course from the absolute beginners course.
You should have completed at least 4 Weeks x 1 hour classes to attend this Course.The series focuses on the fundamentals of salsa: basics, patterns, footwork, turns and technique, which includes proper posture, balance, and upper/lower body coordination. This lays the groundwork for a solid foundation in salsa.  We will focus mainly on fundamentals of partner work. All advanced moves are an extension of the basic. If a student lacks fundamentals he will just learn more and more combinations technically incorrectly and will not progress as a dancer. Therefore, this is the most important class for anyone wishing to learn Salsa. Mastery of the basics will give you the skills and confidence needed to develop into a good dancer. Believe me; it will change your life.
We advised this level after 6-8 months of classes of 1 hour per week at least. This Course is geared to students with a solid, comprehensive foundation in the basics (balance, posture, upper/lower body coordination, weight transfer, cross-body lead). You will learn lead-follow techniques, transitions and space management to moderate music. If you already have a solid understanding of the basic then you are ready for this class. We will teach you skills necessary to apply on Intermediate and Advanced level class such as essential skills and drills.
This quality training programme is for students with a well developed foundation in Salsa who are willing to learn more complex patterns and techniques and emphasis on styling for Ladies and Gents. If you are ready to take the next step, this course is for you!

Salsatropical Limited facilitated a evening entitled Mojito Monday at our office on 4th June 2018. The event was a complete success we had the services of 2 teachers Kelly and Sean and a DJ. Everyone who attended said how much the enjoyed the evening - the Teachers were extremely patient, friendly and professional. The majority of attendees were novices to Salsa, the pace of the dance instruction was perfect. The music was great as well. I would definitely engage the services of Salsatropical again.Anita DraytonIntuitread more

Last year, when I first stepped into a class at Salsa Tropical I didn’t know a pattern in the dance and I didn’t have the right shoes. Face to face, partnered with a stranger, I quickly learned that if I had any hope of coordinating how I heard the beat, correctly interpreted my partner’s lead and skillfully executed a move I had to stay present, plus connect to and trust myself, my partner, the music and the dance. In a jumble of missteps, apologies and the sinking sensation that I was irretrievably clumsythere was, however, a positive outcome: Some part of me loved and yearned and wanted more of the training to focus, the challenge to achieve and the glorious, joyful freedom that dance promised. At last, I’d found a passion that lured my mind away from the past by promising something that felt wonderful in the present.Slowly, through hours of classes and practice with the wonderful teachers at Salsa Tropical my dancing improved and I also started feeling more confident and relaxed.On my 10-month anniversary of joining the school, I would like to say to everyone at Salsa Tropical, how grateful I am for their patience and perseverance. Thank you for helping me to find and sustain a life-affirming connection to joy in the present. That connection—to life, myself, purpose and passion—helped me renegotiate a vision of myself.read more

It was real pleasure to attend 3 months salsa class. Maria is very nice lady and friendly teacher. She really cares about you. Mike Anthony is really a Salsa Master. In 3 months nothing has been repeated. They were very generous in terms of new stuff. They left their signatures on my salsa dancing. I am really appreciated for their efforts and friendly manners. A recommendable Salsa Spot in London.read more

i spent three great months in these school and i can say, without any doubt, that salsatropical is one of the best salsa school in London. Maria, Mike and all the others teachers are really friendly and professional. They know all the different salsa style (Cuban, New York and L.A.) and teach in so nice and fun way. Maria also organize great workshop during the weekend for all the dance levels to improve the dance skill. Maria is so lovely and patient teacher, and Mike is so fun, professional and scrupulous to details. I had a great fun and I learnt a lot from them. It is definitely enjoyable. No pressure, fun, and good music! I also met a lot of nice people there and I have been so sad when i had to leave. Thanks Maria, Mike and all the others teachers for what you gave me and for the great time together.read more

Maria and Mike came my 40th birthday party and they really made my night! I was really nervous beforehand but Maria gave lots of reassurance over the phone and it was obvious they knew what they were doing. Maria and Mike arrived early to set up and get a feel for the party. There were about 80 guests all in a slightly raucous party mood and I thought they would never get everyone to join in. But amazingly they managed to get all the guests into couples and do a lesson and everyone loved it! They wow-ed us all with their performance beforehand, and after the lesson they danced with anyone and everyone who wanted to dance- whatever the level, and however much their toes got trampled on. They totally got into the party spirit, mojitos and all, and they stayed even after the booking time (probably because some of the more enthusiastic women would not let Mike go!!). They were really fantastic and absolutely made the party. Everyone has been talking about them since. I can't thank Maria, Mike and Salsa Tropical enough- extremely professional and slick but so much fun too! what a birthday!read more
