Live to Dance EU presents:

Belfast Salsa School

All Belfast Salsa School classes  are structured by level. 

We have 4 Beginners levels, 4 Improvers levels, 6 Intermediate levels and Advanced Masterclasses.

 

The majority of Salsa classes in Belfast are taught On1, LA Style.

 

However, Adele also teaches Salsa On2 Puerto Rican Style, Classic or Palladium Style and Cha Cha classes, all part of the Salsa family of dances. We will always advertise which styles the classes will be taught in.

Our Salsa classes are run as short courses in Belfast for all levels. You will need to book in for 6 to 8 weeks as a block or 'half term'. This way we are working with the same group for a number of weeks and this make the learning process easier than with drop in classes where you have to keep going back to the beginning every time someone new joins the class.

 

Salsa On1 - LA Style

We teach LA Style Salsa On1. Made famous by the likes of Johnny Vasquez & Fernando Sosa.

Salsa On2 - Puerto Rican Style

We teach Salsa On2 , Puerto Rican style. We also demonstrate the difference between dancing On2 New York Style & On2 Puerto Rican Style. We allow students to choose whether to dance traditional Puerto Rican (with the man breaking forward on2 or the more common, modern day version with the man breaking back on2 which is in line with New York style and makes transitioning between the two styles easier).

Club Style Cha-Cha

This is the freestyle / street style of Cha Cha which was developed from Salsa in the 1950s by the Cuban charanga violinist, composer and music director, Enrique Jorrin. It differs greatly from Ballroom Cha Cha and we explain the differences to you.

Our Salsa classes are 'social' dance classes. Which means we switch partners regularly throughout the class. Even if you attend with a friend or partner you will switch with other students. This helps Leaders and Followers to learn faster by understanding how to Lead or Follow with other people and creates a richer learning experience. If you are not comfortable with switching partners then we would recommend a non social dance class such as a 'partners only' ballroom dance class.

Salsa Blast Workshop Series

Adele has created a unique set of 90 minute Salsa-based workshops known as the 'Salsa Blast Series'.

These intensive workshops focus on additional elements of Salsa dancing that we are not always able to drill down to in as much detail in the regular weekly classes.

The format is a 90 min intensive workshop taught by Adele and then a 30 min practice session with the music playing so you can drill the techniques over & over again.

These workshops are an excellent way of improving your Salsa techniques

The Salsa Blast Series consists of:

Salsa Body Movement

Salsa Musicality & dancing with feeling

Salsa Timing (on1 on2 and cha cha)... on time, every time

Balance, Posture and Positioning

Turning, Spinning & Spotting

Salsa Footwork

Salsa Styling

Styling in Partnerwork

Leading & Following

On1 to On2 Conversion
