Salsa

 

At OC Salsa we offer Beginner and Intermediate levels. Here are the 10 steps OC SALSA system we tech for the beginner level. The first 10 videos teach the 10 Basic Dance Moves of Salsa. The last videos (11-15) Teach the 5 fundamentals techniques: Home position, timing, lead and follow (resistance), Frame and Embellishments. These are the concepts our students must master in order to move to our Intermediate level class (we evaluate and help our students so they can advance in level). It takes an average of 3-4month for students to master all basics. These videos are an aid to help students access all the material of what we teach at class, so the can practice anywhere, anytime. STUDENTS ADVANCING TO OUR INTERMEDIATE SALSA CLASSES: Must know all 10 Steps, have knowledge of the 5 beginner technique and know how to put it all together with Combination 1 and 2 (at the end of this section) for MEN, and how to follow it for ladies.Once ready, you can be evaluated by one of our instructors upon request after our Salsa Class. We encourage our students to evaluate at the end of our salsa classes all the time so we can provide feedback of where they are at, and what they need to work on to advance.
