We are starting our new WEDNESDAY SALSA series on TBA.  In the advance level we will teach you to double and triple spin with sharpness, lead/follow intricate patterns, follow with multiple turning techniques while maintaining posture so you will STAND OUT on the dance floor.  Even though this series has A,B and C level, it will offer different Salsa patterns without repeating the same move in each series.  You can take this series until you feel comfortable to move on to the ultimate Salsa class, the Choreography Salsa performance class.  DROP IN Welcome but must have taken minimum 2 series of Salsa Intermediate.
MAMBO is similar to Salsa in terms of count and steps but the flavour is very much different as you dance Mambo with 2 steps forward and gives it a very different dynamic.  Welcome to ON2 Wednesdays, this is a two months project.  In preparation for the Jasso Mambo Project we will be training Intermediate/Advance Salsa dancers to dance On2 timing and techniques to help you master the up coming season of Jasso Mambo Performance Project.
