Whether this is the first time you even think of dancing salsa or you already quite know your way around the dance floor and want to learn some new moves, you’re in the right place. We provide professional and fun-filled salsa lessons on different levels. Most people in Aruba who dance salsa, dance the ‘crioyo’ style. ArubaSalsa will teach you a unique, different and beautiful style of salsa with turns and impressive combinations called ‘L.A. Style’ , one of the most popular styles in the world.
If you’re not sure in which level you should start, you can always ask one of the instructors.
I Beginners salsa
If you think salsa is just a Spanish sauce to spice up up your taco and/or you never heard terms like ‘basic forward’ and ‘cross body lead’ before, than you’re probably in the right level to start your dance adventure.
In this level you will learn the basics of salsa by executing the right techniques, posture and how to dance to the rhythm. Controlling the basics is essential for the higher levels, so even if you’ve already danced some salsa in the past, you can consider to fresh up your memory with this course.
You’re comfortable with the basic steps and now it’s time to smooth out the edges and make it all look en feel even better. You will learn to use your basic knowledge and techniques to execute very nice patterns. We’ll teach the men how to lead and the ladies learn to apply beautiful ladies styling.
You quite know your way around/on the dance floor and you are now able to apply everything you’ve learned into new patterns. In the third level we will also teach you impressive shines (solo salsa steps) to show off once in a while and you will learn how to combine all of this in a spectacular dance. You will be able to mix and match everything and use you creativity to make your own unique style.
Be prepared to turn it up a notch. After you successfully completed the intermediate course, you’re ready for faster music, more extended patterns and turns. In this level we will also start with spins for ladies and men. We will focus on the right techniques in order for you to execute these spins easily.
V and VI, Advanced 1 & 2
Now it’s time to really put your dancing skills to the test. You are completely comfortable on the dance floor. In these advanced levels we will challenge you with more complicated patterns with spins and faster footwork. We will help you to refine your dance style and teach you how to add your own creative steps, moves and styling to make it YOUR salsa!
Of course you’re never done with salsa. There will always be more to learn! That’s why the advanced classes are never the same, we will teach you different things every time you take the course.
