About the teacher
Your teacher will be me, Trevor Howland. I have been dancing salsa for over 10 years now, and teaching beginners for more than 6. 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 and the Salsa Leeds page on facebook, and the Salsa4DancersLeeds web site (including the Leeds Salsa Calendar). He also runs the Amigos Salsa and Bachata Facebook page. He teaches sometimes for the Salsa Rocks team at Kerala Restaurant on a Wednesday, and runs the Amigos salsa (and bachata) nights along with DJ Luke Stableford. He is well known on the Leeds salsa scene, and is always in demand as a dance partner!
Whatever your reason for being interested in learning salsa, we 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, have a new years resolution to get fit, or if you have a burning passion to dance and have just been looking for the outlet for it… we can get you started on the path to fun and enjoyment on the dance floor!
Suitable for complete beginners, or those that want to take their salsa to the next level, 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 dance floor you’re the real deal!
The 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.
- Stationary and travelling turn techniques.
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.
The classes take place every Sunday, and a full course takes place over 4 weeks. We will do 2 hours per week, building your skills, slowly but surely, and getting you ready for the dance floor.
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 email@example.com 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!
