Intensive Salsa Beginners Workshop at Caramelo Latin Dance

We offer this 5 hour intensive course to get you dancing super fast, while having enough time to layout and practice the essential foundations of Salsa footwork and partnerwork.



Who Is It For


This workshop is designed for those who have never danced before or danced very little. We start from the basics and move through the essential steps to help you feel confident enough to dance socially at parties and clubs. At the completion of this intensive course you will be able to move directly into Salsa Improvers 1.


No partner needed! We always rotate partners so the class is fun and you get to experience the social aspect of Latin partner dancing. You will get to dance with a number of people in your class which will help you work on your body movement and stepping in a partner hold, as well as better understand the impact of the leading and following techniques.
