Course Title
Salsa Styling and Shines for Women

Description

Calling all Salseras - Women, learn to add style, personality and attitude to your dancing. The art of Salsa dancing traces its origins back to Cuba and its Afro-Cuban roots; starting with the Rumba. While emphasis is placed on hip movements, styling of the arms and shoulders are also an integral portion of Salsa dancing.  In Salsa, the arms are used by the lead dancer, to signal his partner an open or closed position is coming up during the dance.  By "styling" her moves, the woman can shine or “show off” between the man's moves in Salsa or just “show off” on any dance floor.  Get a taste of the most beautiful and sensual dance ever created and get in touch with the soul you didn’t even know you had. Join our expert Salsa styling instructor and be the envy of ANY dance floor.
