Syllabus of open step patterns, partner work and combo's

As a memory aid for our students (and as a teaser for our not-yet-but-soon-to-be-students) we give you the full list of basic steps and partner work which we normally teach in our beginners Level, intermediate 1 & 2 and advanced level classes.

Finding the right level for you:

If you are wondering what level is best suited for you, you can use the following guidelines:

  • Beginners : less than 3 months of experience, in order to move into the next level a student should be able to perform the basic step, complete the beginners turn pattern, and perform at least 4 open shines.
  • Intermediate 1 : from 3 months to 1 year of experience,in order for intermediate 1 students to move into the intermediate 2 level, students should have a basic understanding of the spinning technique for men and women, be able to perform the basic step on correct timming without assistance, perform variations of cross body leads, variations of the drop catch, variations of the copa, and check variations. Students should also be able to perform at least 6 open shines.
  • Intermediate 2 : more than 1 year of experience. In order for intermediate 2 students to move into the advanced level, students must have a good understanding of the basic timming and be able to dance a basic turn pattern from the intermedaite 1 or intermediate 2 level with proper timming from start to finish. They must be able to lead and follow multiple turns using the spinning technique, students should be able to follow basic syncopated shines, students should be able to follow class while dancing on moderate tempo music.
  • Advanced : more than 1 year of experience.

Don't let this scare you off, these are mere indications. Some people are natural dancers, others are very fast learners, still others go out every weekend to the salsa clubs and have a lot of exercise. Use your common sense. If you start at level 2 but feel like things are going too slow, try to do level 2 and 3 for a while and then continue at level 3. If you have several years of experience but have no clue what dancing on-2 is all about, take a few classes at level 1 or 2 until you get the feeling and then continue at level 3. It is in both your and your fellow students advantage to find the correct level of classes to attend.
