Many dancers feel lost when their partner releases them from the closed embrace and allows them to dance freestyle salsa (known as Salsa Suelta in Cuba). Freestyle Salsa dancing allows the dancer to express his/her own attitude and personality through spontaneous, improvisational movements inspired by the music. This workshop will introduce you to the fundamentals of balance, rhythm and musicality inspired by Cuban Salsa music. The workshop will incorporate rhythms and movements derived from folkloric and popular Cuban dance styles combined with contemporary club dancing.

This approach to movement and rhythm is seldom taught outside of Cuba. The goal of this workshop is to make your freestyle dancing more spontaneous, fluid and enjoyable. This workshop will demystify how Salsa dancers can identify and engage their bodies with the core clave rhythms, bell patterns and piano montunos that give Salsa its passionate, exciting flavor.

Target Audience: Intermediate-Advanced Salsa dancers, but any level dancer will benefit from this session. Men and women are encouraged to attend.

Pre-requisites: People attending this workshop should be very comfortable with basic Salsa steps and rhythms, have attended basic Salsa styling classes and have at lease one year of social dancing. No partners are necessary for this workshop.

Cost: $30 in advance, $40 at the door Pay NOW!!
