Pa'Gozar! Salsa Class! 6 week Progressive Series
We'll do a 6 week series this time, at Finnriver! Learn some Salsa and Rueda (Wheel salsa) basics! Taught by Carolina www.footloosesalsa.com $72 for the series or $15 drop in. 5:30-6 pm - Basic steps and variations. For all levels. 6-7:00 pm Basic Moves to make La Rueda- The WHEEL go round! 7pm - possibly stay for a bit afterwards for dancing.
Cuban style Salsa dance and music (called 'TIMBA') is informed by many genres: >From that of Afro-Cuban religions (Orisa), to Mambo, to Rumba, to Son, to Reggaeton and Cuba-ton. We aspire to embody some of these flavors and discover our own flavor of expression as well. We have a blast getting swept away in the compelling dynamics of the WHEEL formation! We also like to learn a bit about rhythmic patterns, musical accents and flow ("gears"), the historical development of this genre ('TIMBA'). We like to sing along, learn Cuban expressions ('Cubanismos'), and the meanings and cultural implications of the lyrics. All while dancing up a storm.
Dancing with a partner is fun. Dancing with a whole group is exhilarating! Everything you learn in the WHEEL format, is applicable to partner dancing as well. The moves are the same.
This is a progressive series, so the preference is that you attend all 6 classes, or 5 out of 6, as each class will build on the one before. We will allow drop in too, if you have danced salsa before or been to a class or two before. I can't cater too much, to new-comers per se. However, there will be a lot of repetition and review. We may possibly go 2 weeks longer, if there is popular demand. Hope to see you there! xo La Abuela Candela!
