New York Style Salsa “On 2” (Mambo)
This course will
teach you how to dance New York Style Salsa “On 2” or Mambo. The course
will emphasize technique, timing, and “On 2” styling. Each class
involves an aerobic portion (choreographed to music), which will
include the drilling of basic footwork that is used in executing turn
patterns with a partner. Also, students will learn individual footwork
(dance moves done while apart) called “shines”, and turn patterns in
New York Style Mambo.
Students will learn
the Mambo (or On 2) basic,
the difference between dancing on one and on two, and, how to identify
the beat. Students will also learn upper body/arm Salsa styling. As the
course progresses, students will be exposed to basic and intermediate
figures or turn patterns with an increasing level of difficulty.
addition, students will be exposed to technique that will set them on
their way to being able to execute “New York Style” spins. This course
is designed both for the On 2 dancer or beginner dancer that wants to
learn/improve how to dance Salsa on 2 and the “On 1” dancer that has
some experience. Come alone or bring a friend, but no partner is
