This month the theme is leading and following skills for Salsa dancers. Salsa is a social dance and often danced with complete strangers. Make sure your skills are sharp and give yourself the confidence to ask anyone to dance wherever you are.
This is a series of 6 workshops through March which will each build on the previous week so coming to all 6 will give you the maximum benefit.
Please come with a partner for these. We need an even balance.
5pm – fundamental skills (all levels)
6pm – keeping them on their toes! (Improvers/intermediates & up)
£5 per workshop (£10 for both)

Body movement and isolations
Class numbers will be small so I can focus on you and give you lots of feedback and tips.

Gemma discovered salsa in 2007 and quickly became a self-professed salsa addict. She has travelled across the UK and learnt from some of the most prominent figures in the international
salsa community since then. She began performing in 2009 and has been teaching since 2010 in Cardiff. She is known for her energetic style and her passion for salsa dance and music.
Gemma teaches cross-body style salsa and also runs skills workshops for all styles of salsa dancers.
Her beginners classes are taught in collaboration with Salsa Souls. Students will be given the fundamental steps and basic turn patters to use as their foundations to build up their repertoire.
Her skills workshops are taught in a dance studio, and give students an in depth understanding of the mechanics of salsa and its connection to the music with plenty of individual feedback and tips for improvements.
