Intermediate On2 Salsa for On1 Dancers

Already know a few steps? If you currently dance Salsa On1, or have tried On2 but somehow always end up back On1, this class is for you! During this 6-week Intermediate Salsa class, Carlos and Dori will go beyond showing you the differences in timing between On1 and On2. They will explore the music, help you hear various instruments within it, and explain what to listen for so you stay on time (and improve your musicality too!). Once the fundamentals are grasped, you’ll learn how to transition key salsa moves from On1 to On2 – without slipping back to On1. And… you might just learn some new shines, lead variations and sexy styling too!
