Tips & Tricks:
To prepare for your first class we have some tips that might make your experience more pleasant:
- Wear the right clothing
We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely and supportive shoes. Ladies, it is not required to wear heels while Salsa dancing. You can totally wear your comfy sneakers. Then, as you begin to feel more practiced, feel free to pop on a pair of heels.
- Get familiar with Salsa music
You can dance salsa to any music that has great percussion or brass. Examples of current day artists that are popular amongst Salsa dancers include Victor Manuelle, Marc Anthony, and La India. You can also dive into some classic songs from Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Tito Puente, and anyone from Fania All-Stars. If you search Salsa Connexion on Spotify you will find our music lists to practice.
- Don’t be intimidated to go solo to a dance class
You do not need a partner to start dancing Salsa! Every day at 16.00 h we check the balance between leaders and followers and provide assistants to balance out the class, so that everyone will have a dance partner. If you’re a beginner, you can also to learn the fundamentals on your own. That way, you can work on your posture, movements, weight changes and footwork before doing it all with a partner.
- Let go of comparing yourself
Comparison is the thief of JOY. When you are just starting out, it’s easy to compare yourself to other dancers, whether you’ve seen them on social media, on the dance floor, or in a Salsa class.
Being inspired by your fellow Salsa dancers is a good thing, just make sure you don’t talk yourself down through constant comparison. Instead, try to take a more realistic approach and give yourself time to learn. Your journey. Your practice pace.
- Be ready to spontaneously partner up in class
Spontaneous partnering up and regularly switching partners is the teacher’s way to stop overthinking the steps, let go, and have friendly dance partner experiences.
As you get ready for your class, remind yourself that if you mess up, you’re all just there to learn – not be the best or most perfect person in the room. Our classes should be a safe space to learn and make friends, so put your best hip forward and don’t be scared to do some social mingling.
- Check your hygiene
If you are about to start your first partnering class, expect that you’re going to be quite close to someone. Wear clean clothes, bring a mint, some deodorant, and perhaps a towel.
