Salsa on2 Shines & Partnerwork
Oct 5, 2021 - Oct 26, 2021

no partner required

This dance is Mambo in disguise. Many don't know that Mambo is the original dance and Salsa is what popularized the genre underlyingly. This is a special workshop series as this subcategory of salsa only gets taught to performers and dance team members of ETOWN SALSA. A portion of this class will be footwork in solo and the majority will be partnerwork patterns. You will learn timing on2 which will be an essential part to this class that requires music appreciation.

You will need to have some dance experience in Salsa on1 or other dance background in partnering dances in order for you to grasp the concept of Mambo as it really focuses on music in order for you to succeed at this dance. Good music background , especially in percussion is key to mastering this style. We recommend completing at least one series of level 1.5 (Salsa on1) in order to join this class. This class is designed to challenge you but we will take the class at a slow pace in order for everyone to understand the timing concepts well.

Masks optional / Restriction Exemption Program in effect.
