Salsa A (Beginner)


1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 1,2,3 (hold) 5,6,7 (hold)

It’s the salsa beat (8beats) and when to take steps (123, 567). You are going to listen to this counting over and over again in all of Salsa A classes! Haha! Learn & practice these steps until it feels natural.

  • Fundamentals: Review the basic salsa steps – Forward&Backward, Side to Side, Left&Right Turns, and Cross-Body Lead. Highly recommended for absolute beginners!
  • Walk Thru & CBLs:  Review the cross-body lead steps & a variation walk-thru step, in addition to pivot turns.
  • Back Break & Swing: Review back break while swinging left & right.
  •  Hammerlock: A popular partner work you can see in the picture

*The different class titles refer to the fundamental partner work combinations every different class will concentrate on.
