Thursday August 9 9:30pm (second Thursday of Every Month)
Our goal at OC Salsa is to help students advance their dance skills while having fun . That is why offer a once a month evaluation class. As a beginner your goal is to advance to intermediate level class,and also to improve. You will be evaluated based int he material that we teach at classes using the OC salsa Syllabus program (download free app OC Salsa)
At evaluation class you will be dancing with a class mate or instructor. Don’t forget to register in advance at class. Then you will be asked to dance the steps and what is required for you to dance (see syllabus) . The benefit of evaluation is that you evaluate your current skills and you are told on what you need to do to improve. Evacuations are not just a way to advance you to the intermediate level but also to let you know what you need to work on. The instructor will tell you what you need to work on so you can reference it with the class videos of the app to practice and get better and graduate to the intermediate level, or prepare to evaluate again if you are not ready. If you have all the elements you are evaluating for, then congratulations, you are advancing! Don’t forget top register in advance, spots are limited. Evaluations are free for monthly members or $10 for non members.
