Last day of Salsa class, Spring 2012



This was the last day of Salsa 3 for the Spring session. Alain, was not able to dance because he hurt his shoulder. Cheryl decided to teach a rueda class instead of the traditional "figure of the day" class. Since they were a small group, the students covered a lot of material in little time. This video show the results.

Thank you guys for making it to the end of the session. You are heroes and great dancer. We hope to see you soon in the next session.

An old salsa 2 video.



The date of this video is unknown but it was before the floor was redone and when Alain was still overweight. Nevertheless, the steps shown are clearly demonstrated and the educational value is still there. Salsa is the same this year as last year.

Enjoy it.

Dance Conmigo offers private & group Salsa classes in Montreal http://www.danceconmigo.com/salsa

This is is a simple combination using fundamental moves as the Cross body lead, Open break, Inside turn, Right Turns, Half turns. All our students, who had only 24 weeks of classes, were able to do it. If you try it, I am sure that you will get it without difficulty.

Dance Conmigo have been teaching this combination since its beginning in 2006. We find it that the student gets a nice opportunity to practice their inside turn  material and it flows well.

Wow, this move is challenging, but my students surprised me and were able to do it without difficulty.

We started with an outside walk for the follower
a hand slide to an open break in which the leader is turning his back to the follower
a hand change to an interrupted inside turn
a right turn for the follower while the leader does a half hook turn
another open break in which the leader is turning his back to the follower
a surprise leader stepping perpendicular to partner to guide her a one turn an a half while the leader does a hook turn.

Basic step of Salsa (lesson 1 Level 1)



Dance Conmigo offers private & group Salsa classes in Montreal
http://www.danceconmigo.com/salsa
While you are here, also join our newsletter.

In this video, we spoke about the first building block of salsa dancing, the basic step.

Here are 3 general points of the salsa basics.

1. The music is composed of eight musical beats. 1-2-3 (on the 4 we do a small stop) 5-6-7 ( on the 8 we do another stop)

2. The leader stars by stepping forward with his left foot, while the follower starts by stepping back with her right foot.

3. The basic can be done in either open (holding hands) or closed position.

Salsa is is a great fun activity. Alain and Cheryl from Dance Conmigo hope that you will join us for all our other level 1, level 2 and level 3 videos.

If you live in the Montreal (Canada) area, consider coming to our dance classes or our coming to our salsa party the first Saturday of every month. Write us an email for more information.

One of the biggest satisfaction of teaching dancing is to see the expression of happiness on the faces of the students after they manage to learn a new movement and after having pleasant interaction with other students in the class.

Salsa 2 lesson 4 (Dance Conmigo)


Dance Conmigo offers private & group Salsa classes in Montreal
http://www.danceconmigo.com/salsa

In this video, we worked on a move that I call "half turn" which is in fact the beginning of an "inside turn" that gets interrupted right before the end and the leader bring the follower back to face him.

The crucial element of this move is start slowing the follower momentum as she is finishing her turn, stop her completely by 1-2-3 and bring her back to face him on 5-6-7.
