This is a beginner’s course aimed at introducing you to the key principles and moves of Cuban Salsa.  It is not necessary to come with a partner as the first part of the class will be about learning the steps.  Following that we will work in pairs to apply the steps to dancing in couples.

Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to salsa.

The course will be led by certified instructor Jaime who trained at the famous Mangosta Academy in Chile.  Jaime was also part of a professional dance troupe in Chile in the 1980’s where he performed Jazz, Hip Hop and Contemporary dance as well as Salsa with Many Castro (a winner of America’s Got Talent who now resides in California).  Jaime has been teaching Cuban Salsa for over 10 years.

The initiative is a collaboration between Jaime Ruiz, Guild Hall, the Southampton Cultural Center and OLA.

Este es un curso para principiantes diseñado para presentarles los principios y pasos de Salsa Cubana.
