The Dance Studio Leeds
This event is the first in the next round of my salsa course!
Whatever your reason for being interested in learning salsa, I can help you out with that all important first step (left foot for guys, right foot for girls!) Whether you have been inspired by Strictly Come Dancing, or Cuban Fury; or you just want to meet more people, lose weight, or just get out more; or if you have a burning passion to dance and have just been looking for the outlet for it… I can get you started on the path to fun and enjoyment on the dance floor!
With a small class of complete beginners I will take you from dancing zero, step by step, to a hero on the dance floor (no sequins required)! Learn and practice salsa in the privacy of a dance studio, so when you get to the dancefloor you’re the real deal!
The 8 step syllabus will build, week on week, slowly but surely building your dancing skills. Included in the course is:-
How to listen to salsa music.
The rhythm of salsa.
Leading and following techniques.
Body movement and how to use it.
A brief run-down of other latino dance forms, rueda, bachata and kizomba.
Enough moves to make moving fun!
A fully inclusive guide to the salsa scene in Leeds.
Lots of fun is guaranteed, no partner necessary, no previous experience required.
The beginners salsa course will take place in The Dance Studio Leeds. This purpose built space is perfect for dancing, with lovely wooden floors and wall to wall mirrors. (Also free wi-fi, hot drinks and refreshments!)
Your teacher will be me, Trevor Howland. I have been dancing salsa for 6 years now. I have danced on 5 continents, and learned a lot about what it takes to be a good dancer in that time. I have performed at congresses, and for the last year or so I have been helping out in various beginners classes around Leeds. I also run the Leeds Salsa and Latin Dance Group on Facebook, the Salsa 4 Dancers Leeds page on facebook, and the Salsa4DancersLeeds web site (including the Leeds Salsa Calendar).
Some videos of me dancing…
A rueda performance that I was involved in…
A performance that I put on (at the last minute) at a church!
The eight week salsa beginners classes, run every Saturday (not over Easter or Christmas Weekends). The next course starts on the 22nd March and will be running at 12 noon. The course costs £30, for 8 classes… or if you are a student, unemployed, work for the NHS, or you’re a blood donor… or if you are a member at The Dance Studio… you’ll get the reduced rate of £25. At just over £3 per class you won’t find many better deals in town!
If you have any questions about the course, I have also created a Beginners Salsa FAQ!
To book your place in the course, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your details, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can. There are a limited number of spaces available for this course, and I want to have a small class, and as I am aiming to have equal numbers of males and females I am expecting the spaces to fill up soon! First come, first served!
