This level has two separate but complimentary curriculums that are rotated from one session to the next. It is highly recommended students take this level twice in back to back sessions to learn both curriculums before advancing to our Intermediate Salsa Training Series. This will not only help students gain increased maturity of movement of the techniques covered, but also provide students with an increased repertoire of very leadable moves for the Social dance floor.

  • - Review of the Absolute Beginner course techniques
  • - Increased flair and complexity to your basic turn variations
  • - New progressive "Night Club Style" and "Latino Style" combinations
