2. SALSA LEVEL 1

This 9 week series builds on the technical framework of LA Style Salsa (“On 1”) that was introduced in the Absolute Beginner Series. With continued emphasis on strong frame and partner connection, as well as footwork and timing, this class will also expand upon the basic building block of club style salsa, the cross body lead, to give you a more extensive vocabulary of well-executed moves to take to the social dance floor.

3. SALSA LEVEL 2

This 9 week series is for those with some experience dancing LA Style Salsa (“On 1”) who are looking to build upon the technical skillset they have already acquired.

A bit about us:

Corie is a multi-disciplinary artist who has trained in improvisation comedy, physical theatre, as well as a smorgasbord of danceforms. Her movement quality is chiefly informed by the polyrhythmic dances of the African diaspora and she has choreographed and performed salsa and latin-fusion pieces for audiences in St. John’s, Toronto, Montreal and New York.
Del hails from Lagos, Nigeria where, in addition to having had an instrumental role in growing the local underground salsa dance scene, he also taught, performed and competed at several high-profile latin dance events. Del’s performance career has also extended into the realm of hip hop and breakdance, leading him to teach classes in pop locking to help others grow their skills. The urban flavour of Del’s dance background offers a distinctively smooth character to his movement.
Together with Stephanie Robinson, Corie and Del are committed to growing the salsa dance community in Newfoundland through offering lessons, socials and corporate/event based latin dance entertainment.
