We all choose schools for different reasons.

I chose TwoLeftFeet to start with because I was afraid of being a slower learner. The 2 hour sessions helped as there was more time spent on going through the technicalities of the footwork and arm work, thus allowing me to build a strong foundation for my salsa as I progress further.

Of course, the free refreshers made TwoLeftFeet a tempting option also, just in case I couldn't catch the lessons on the first round.

Yup they are good as they break down the steps. But have to warn that Jean and Wendy can be quite stern at times. pale But as long you are okay, dun take their words too hard, and just enjoy the class. Some of my friends actually like stern teachers. So to each their own la.

Saw their performance before and I have to say they are really good!! Their dance steps are nice and varied from JJ. But I dun find that they are very different so I can switch between a 2LF student and JJ student effortlessly. I dun know about combining the 2 dance schools dance steps in a dance. That you have to ask the guys. geek I just follow. Why I say the above is that for other schools I went to, their style can be quite radically different so you must be prepared beforehand.

PostSubject: Description of Class - Level Two A Salsa   Thu Dec 07, 2006 12:03 pm

Class Name: Level Two A Salsa
Level: Intermediate
Duration: 4 weeks x 2 hours
Pre-requisite: Must have taken Level One A and Level One B Salsa
Description:
The Level Two A Salsa class picks up from where the Level One B Salsa class ends. Besides building on patterns that you've learnt in Level One, you will be introduced to other aspects of salsa:

Styling
Styling has everything to do with how you look...i.e. the style you bring to your dance. It's what gives your dance flair. In Level Two Salsa, you (ladies) will learn how to put "accents" into your dance to give it more style.

Spinning
Spinning adds another level of excitement to your dance. Before introducing you to partner spinning in Level Three Salsa, you will first be taught how to spin on your own. Spinning can be included in partner dancing as well as during shines to add a "WOW" factor in your dance. For the ladies, once you can spin on your own, spinning with a partner will be second nature to you.

Shines
Shines give you a chance to break away from your partner and shine on your own. It's an integral part of salsa, and you'll find lots of opportunities to shine (whether you like it or not, ladies). You will learn sets of moves that you can piece together to create your own shine patterns. More importantly, you'll learn to do it with style. Anyone can do shines... but not everyone can look good doing it. We'll teach you the secret to making your shines SHINE!

Patterns
You will be introduced to patterns based on new and more advanced footwork and arm work. Although different from the moves in Level One A and B, the principles of leading and following that you learned in previous classes will still apply. Therefore, "leaders" should be competent at leading all turns, while "followers" should be competent at doing all turns. As always, the emphasis will be on how to lead the move (for the guys) and how to interpret the lead (the ladies).

Level: Intermediate
Duration: 4 weeks x 2 hours
Pre-requisite: Must have taken Level Two A Salsa

In addition, learn how you can include double spins and shines into these combinations, to add more excitement and flair to your dance.

Class Name: Level Three A Salsa
Level: Advanced
Duration: 4 weeks x 2 hours
Pre-requisite: Must have taken Level Two B Salsa
Description:
The Level Three A Salsa class picks up from where the Level Two B Salsa class ends. Besides building on top of the moves taught in Level Two B, you will learn partner spinning, partner shines and more intricate and fun patterns.

Styling
Continue to add flair to your dance with styling moves that are eye-catching and yet easy to execute.

Partner Spinning
Now that you've learnt how to spin yourself in Level Two Salsa, it's time to learn how to spin your partner OR be spun by a partner. For guys, learn the correct techniques of prepping your partner, starting a spin, and ending the spin. For ladies, learn how to prep yourself, start your spin, and keep your spins light and straight while maintaining balance and control.

Solo and Partner Shines
Pick up even more shine moves, and learn how to apply nimble footwork and body isolation to make your shines look good. Besides adding to your repertoire of shine moves, guys will also learn how to lead your partner in and out of a partner shine, while the ladies learn what to do in a partner shine and how to end it with style.

Patterns
Be introduced to even more fun and challenging patterns. As always, the emphasis will be on how to lead the move (for the guys) and how to interpret the lead (the ladies).

PostSubject: Description of Class - Introd to Rueda   Thu Dec 07, 2006 12:07 pm

Class Name: Intro to Rueda
Level: Beginner / Intermediate
Duration: 4 weeks x 2 hours
Pre-requisite:
Must know basic salsa moves (simple turn, cross-body lead, enchufla)
Description:
What is Rueda?
Rueda is a really fun Cuban group dance. Basically, you have couples dancing in a circle. During the dance, one person will call for specific patterns to be executed, at specific times, by all. There is also a constant changing of partners, which makes it a vivid and joyful spectacle.

Is Rueda also salsa?
Most definitely. There are different forms of salsa, and the patterns you learn in Rueda are a Cuban form of salsa. Some of the patterns are very intricate and beautiful to watch. Although Rueda is done as a group, the patterns can also be applied to regular partner dancing.

Can salsa dancers of all levels join this class?

Yes. However, you must know at least the basic moves in salsa, such as simple turn, cross-body lead and enchufla.

Because Rueda is a group salsa dance involving specific patterns, the Intro to Rueda class will get you started on the basics steps, how to change partners, etc., and give you a wide-enough repertoire of moves to be able to do Rueda in any country.

PostSubject: Description of Class - Intro to Bachata   Thu Dec 07, 2006 12:08 pm

Class Name: Intro to Bachata
Level: Beginner / Intermediate
Duration: 1 week x 2 hours
Pre-requisite: NIL
Description:
Visit any salsa club and you'll hear an occasional 4-beat tune that's very romantic, and has couples locking bodies on the dance floor.

What is it? It's Bachata. Bachata is a form of music and dance that originated in the countryside and rural marginal neighborhoods of the Dominican Republic. Its subjects are usually romantic; especially of tales of heartbreak.

Bachata music has a slow tempo, with a merry or sometimes sad tune played out by guitars. The dance itself is sensual, with lots of hip movement. As with salsa, the step timing is three steps and then a one-beat pause, which is characterized by the sensual thrust of the hips to one side.

Although the basic step is easy, as with all Latin dances, the hardest part is getting the body action. Without the hip and body action, you are not dancing the Bachata.

In this 2-hr workshop, you'll learn how to perform your steps with the right body movement. As Bachata is all about hips, learn the secrets to swaying your body and thrusting your hips on the one-beat pause in a sensuous and fluid manner. That will make the difference between looking like you're marching, and looking like you're dancing.

Guys will also learn how to lead the Bachata using their arms and their bodies, while ladies will learn how to interpret the lead and move to where the leader takes her.

Recommended Attire: We recommend comfortable jeans for this class. Due to the hot weather, please also take the necessary steps to keep yourself smelling nice throughout the class. You may want to bring a change of clothes and mints.

Recommended Attire: We recommend comfortable jeans for this class. Due to the hot weather, please also take the necessary steps to keep yourself smelling nice throughout the class. You may want to bring a change of clothes and mints.

PostSubject: Description of Class - Intro to Merengue   Thu Dec 07, 2006 12:10 pm

Class Name: Intro to Merengue
Level: Beginner / Intermediate
Duration: 1 week x 2 hours
Pre-requisite: NIL
Description:
What's that catchy 2-beat tune that's occasionally played in salsa clubs, but too fast to be a salsa?

If you've been to Union Square, you would have heard this Dominican folkloric music, known as the Merengue. Merengue is also a very fun dance that can be enjoyed by dancers of all levels. Because it is easier to learn and less technical, it has a wider presence than salsa.

Having said that, anyone can do the Merengue, but not everyone can look good doing the Merengue.

In this 2-hr workshop, you'll learn how to do the Merengue with style, through proper weight shifting between the legs, hips and upper-body. Weight shifting is the crux of Merengue and it's the reason why some people march, while others groove.

Once you can master weight shifting, you can then begin to perform the beautiful and intricate arm movements associated with Merengue, with style. Best of all, you will be able to apply the techniques of weight shifting to your salsa and smoothen your basic steps.

So don't just learn the Merengue. Learn to do it with style!

Recommended attire:
We recommend comfortable jeans for this class. Due to the hot weather, please also take the necessary steps to keep yourself smelling nice throughout the class. You may want to bring a change of clothes and mints.
