Salsa Intermediate Level 1

6 week course (1 hour per class once a week)

 

Important: Beginner Salsa course must be completed.

Please read above description 
Approval from instructors required to take this course.

Salsa has many intermediate patterns. In one course we can teach only few combinations.

That is why, most of the Intermediate Salsa level 1 patterns, we prepare and teach in 6 sets of

Intermediate Salsa level 1 courses. This means that in each new course (each set), you will learn different

intermediate patterns. The same patterns will repeat again after 6 courses are done.

1 set of courses means 6 weeks (1 hour per week) / 6 sets of 6 weeks each.

Once you complete them. Then you can move to Intermediate level 2,
where we teach more complex moves and patterns.

In the Salsa Intermediate Level 1, you will learn:

- New combinations every session
