Learn to Dance Salsa with
Two left feet? No problem! No partner? Not necessary. We’ll help you to progress to whatever level of proficiency you desire while keeping it fun in our Portland Oregon group Salsa lessons.
Salsa Level 1 - 4 Week Progressive Series
The Level 1 Salsa class offers students the basic fundamentals and introductory techniques of Salsa. Students learn the basic Salsa step, Cross Body Lead, simple combination turns and musicality. Each week you will learn something new and you will practice what you’ve learned from the previous week.
To benefit most out of our Portland Oregon group Salsa lessons, we encourage students to take all 4 classes. However, we understand that things happen that may cause you to miss a class. It’s okay, since we always review the previous week’s material.
Note: We will not accept new students after the 2nd week of the series.
