Categories: Musicality, Online, Salsa


Do you want to dance with the breaks & adapt your footwork to fit the instruments?

Discover about the Bombo and the Ponché, and how they are used by different salsa instruments, particularly the congas, bass, clave & piano. Enhance the musicality of your dancing by adapting your footwork to use these important elements of salsa, as well as understanding how breaks in salsa are often phrased around them. Also learn about the Cascara and how you can dance to it, whether you dance On1 or On2.

This collection of 3 online classes is not simply choreography – there are short bits of choreographed footwork as examples, but the classes are more about helping you to dance salsa with more musicality. Having a greater understanding of how the rhythms are used in salsa will help you to pick them out in your dancing, and predict what might happen at a musical break.

Different aspects of the music are clearly explained with examples and exercises to help you understand the music better, and to make your dancing more musical. Hopefully it will also heighten your enjoyment of listening to salsa.
