Level 4-5 is one of Sueños de Salsa’s most popular classes featuring int/adv levels of instruction. This partnerwork class features lead and follow instructors, and a new pattern every week. For students that have mastered the 2-3 level, this partnerwork class is the next step in creating, practicing, and executing more complex figure variations. Veteran social dancers will be able to learn fluid figure sequences while frequently rotating partners to gain proper leading and following skills. This class is often attended by our performance team members who are looking for detailed instruction in advanced techniques.
This course addresses many major aspects of social dancing including: communication/connection, style, and spinning technique.
First, each class will utilize a turn pattern to demonstrate essential leading and following techniques necessary for non-verbal communication on the dance floor. Leaders will learn how to execute figures with the appropriate signals, timing, and momentum. Followers will learn how to respond rapidly to these signals with the appropriate body resistance and speed. The goal of this aspect of the course is to facilitate clear and seamless social dancing with a variety of dance partners.
Lastly, spinning technique with a partner will be presented in detail. Technique drills will be a routine part of each class followed by a close examination of body alignment, balance, momentum, hand & arm positioning, and timing during partnerwork spins.
Overall, both leaders and followers are expected to develop a social dancing technique that is comfortable, effective, and impressive.
Must complete three level 2/3 series and have a stong understanding of our level 2/3 material AND consistantly keep timing, execute clean double spins.
