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!

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 2- 3 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!

I started having salsa lessons 2 years ago at the Bishopsgate Institute where I enrolled on a 6 week course. I did not have high expectations at the beginning but wanted to improve my fitness level and have fun during the lunch hour and this is where I met Maria my teacher. Maria made the class and experience so much fun that I am now addicted to dancing even though I have 2 left feet and now dance at least twice a week under her guidance. She is a very talented dancer with a lovely personality I would highly recommend her lessons to anyone.

Belinda King

Maria’s teacher training package was absolutely first class — it was extremely thorough, informative and very detailed. She is an excellent teacher — very knowledgeable, experienced and great fun to work with. She is patient, creative and flexible and I really enjoyed myself. The DVDs and written notes included in the package are brilliant as well. All in all its a wonderful teacher training programme that I recommend to anyone.
