Hello Salseros and Salseras!

I’m excited to offer another specialty workshop on Saturday, March 3rd.  The Movement & Connection Intensive is a 3 hour workshop designed to increase your understanding of your own movement, partner connection and improve your skills as a leader and/or follower.

Social dancing can be a lot of fun but being a good leader/follower is a skill that needs to be trained to be truly good at it.  I’ve spent 18 years of my career studying the lead-follow connection and teaching what I’ve learned to dancers around the globe.  I can‘t wait to teach this workshop locally.

The Movement & Connection Intensive will be on Saturday March 3rd from 12-3p at Caribbean Soul Dance Studio in Jersey City, NJ.  This workshop is for On1 and On2 dancers, leaders and followers.  Space is limited to 20 dancers so register early and reserve your spot!

What you will learn:

  • Proper weight transfer, body positioning, and alignment.
  • How to correctly engage your muscles for efficient movement.
  • How to leverage the ground for power and speed
  • Proper breathing techniques
  • How to read and create the right amount of resistance and tension
  • How to create the best connection with your partner
  • How to effortlessly lead and follow

What you will get:

  • Detailed and quality instruction
  • Personalized attention
  • Greater understanding of the lead-follow connection
  • Increased body awareness
  • Increased confidence with your dancing in general

This class is for you, if you want to:

  • Have a quicker response as a follower
  • Have a clearer lead
  • Be more balanced and controlled
  • Be more intune with your partner
  • Be more creative without losing connection
  • Create a strong foundation to keep on growing
