SALSA CLASSES

Did you know that Salsa dancing actually ‘BOOSTS YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM’? The joy of Salsa dancing often distracts us from noticing just how much, ‘immune system strengthening’, aerobic exercise we are actually doing, and we know that having a strong immune system helps us fight off viruses of all kinds, including Covid19! And its not the only benefit that Salsa dancers enjoy, other free benefits from learning this fantastic dance include:

• It keeps your body ‘young’
• Lowers cholesterol
• Improves balance
• Improves memory
• Bone and joint health
• Helps you with Weight
• Strengthens muscles
• Improves emotional health
• Strengthens social skills
• Helps develop stronger personal relationships.

So remember to add Salsa dancing to your list of COVID protection methods, and keep on dancing.

  1. ‘’STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’

LEVEL 1 WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK:

‘Strictly Come Salsa Dancing’, ‘LEVEL 1’, class will be on week 5 of the course this Sunday when we will be re-visiting the all-important, ‘Cross-body Move’, and also the turns. The ‘Cross-body Move’, is what this style of Salsa dancing gets its name from. It also injects dynamic movement into the dance, which increases the enjoyment. Week 4 is also the stage in the course when we begin to put the different steps and moves you have been learning so far together, as we begin to create your first salsa routine!

You may find that you are not able, ’at this stage’, to master every single move that we put together. Don’t worry J We have plenty of time to go over the key aspects again and as long as you keep up the freestyle practice you will begin to remember more and more, and remember we still have a further three evenings of tuition and practice to develop your new found new skills, before the end of the course

 

  1. THIS WEEK’S ‘LEVEL 2’ CLASS

This week’s LEVEL 2, class will be a beautiful blend of ‘Crossbody’, and ‘Cuban’, style salsa! Boasting a total of four cross body moves, a couple of open breaks and……. wait for it….. A Cuban, ‘Enchufla’, passing-on move to finish with a flare!

So Leads – Don’t forget your note pads this week, and ‘Partners’, remember to concentrate on ‘following’, the, ‘lead’, with style. Remember the partner’s aim is to dance, ‘in the moment’. So leave the responsibility for remembering the routine to the ‘lead’ and move only after receiving a clear ‘lead’. We open at 7pm to offer you the chance to practice what you can remember from last week’s routine, BEFORE the first ‘warm-up’ session.

We look forward to dancing with you all again this Sunday,

LEVEL 3 THIS WEEK: This week’s ‘level 3’, class includes a variety of cross-body and reverse cross-body moves with spins and turns between. There will be rapping in and out and turning and ducking going on. Before topping it all off with an ‘Enchulfa’ passing-on move. You won’t want to miss it!

LEVEL 4 THIS WEEK: This week’s ‘level 4’, class begins with a right hand pick up to her side, cross-body and rev-cross body moves with turns and a rap in. There will be all manor of fancy hand moves including chucking, turning and catching, and a cross-rapping turn. Not to mention the cross-body to Titanic, the promenades, into cross-body shoulder turn pass-on!! A wizzy, uplifting sort of routine that is definitely not for the faint hearted

 

  1. CHRISTMAS GIFTS:

If you are still undecided on what to buy friends and family this Christmas, we have the following exciting ideas that will encourage your friends and family to put a spring in their step and dance their way into the New Year:

everybodysalsa personalised Christmas gift vouchers:

If you have friends and family that might benefit from taking part in a six week beginners course, why not buy them an everybodysalsa, gift voucher? We are offering personalised gift vouchers completely free of charge to all our dancers. All you need to pay for is the course fee of £49!

Please note that there are only 2 more dancing Sunday’s before Christmas. So place your order for an everybodysalsa, gift voucher? ASAP  To make sure its ready to collect on week six of the current courses.

  1. QI GONG, TAI CHI & MEDITATION CLASSES

In a seemingly increasingly stressful world we can all benefit from the ancient and wise practice of Tai Chi, which is a form of moving meditation, that keeps us fit and healthy. It also has a calming effect on the mind that slows our thoughts in preparation to be able to meditate.

A guided meditation will follow every Tai Chi class, every week to offer us a welcome break from the ‘mind chatter’, that causes stress, and leave us in a calmer, more positive frame of mind to improve the quality of our lives what-ever we do.

So drawing on my previous experience of teaching Tai Chi for Grand Master Brian Jones and decades of Tai Chi practice. I feel ready to offer this gift again, and this time offer the ancient guided meditations, that I have also enjoyed, as a natural progression with everyone who would like to join me: Kind regards, Alan

Tai Chi and meditation drop in classes take place

Every Wednesday from 4.30 till 5pm

The Goldhay Centre, 105 Paynels, PE2 5QP

The Qi Gong, Tai Chi and Meditation classes being offered here are perfect for new starters and experienced practitioners alike. So why not join me for a little bit of, ‘me’, time

Entrance is only £4 for both classes, (see attached flyer).

Happy dancing,

GIFTS FOR CHRISTMAS 2023

1. LEARN TO SALSA BY CHRISTMAS
(Last chance to join): GOOD NEWS: The Good news for anybody who wanted to ‘Learn To Salsa By Christmas’, but didn’t make it for the opening night last week: New starters can join this course on either week 1, or week 2, and that means that you are still welcome to join the course TONIGHT.
LAST CHANCE TO JOIN: To be able to transform new starters into cool salsa dancers by Christmas we only have time to recap one week’s class before introducing new exciting steps and moves each week. So unless we have made special arrangements, TONIGHT is the last chance for new starters to join this course! So do tell your friends and family, so nobody misses out. Please note that the reduced £49 course fees are also due TONIGHT, (cash preferred).
DANCERS WITH PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE: dancers with previous salsa experience are welcome to join this course at any stage to refresh your skills before progressing to the level 2 class. Experienced dancers can also pay per week, or pay for the course in advance to qualify for a reduced rate, which ever option you choose, we will be pleased to see you.

2. CLASSES AT FOUR DIFFERENT LEVELS!
THIS WEEK WE ARE OFFERING CLASSES AT FOUR DIFFERENT LEVELS!!! Following on from last week’s successful new format, we will, once again, be offering salsa dance routines at FOUR different levels tonight. We will, once again, be offering a choice of either continuing to refine this week’s level 2 class, after part one, or taking part in a new level 3 class. We will also be repeating last week’s new format, by offering a new exciting level 4 class at the same time as the level 1 class takes place.
3. STRICTLY TAKE 2 THIS WEEK
Week 2 of our NEW, 6 week Salsa dance course, ‘for experienced dancers’, is now on week 2. This course is designed for dancers who have already completed an everybodysalsa 'beginners' course', or have experienced a minimum of 10 weeks salsa dance classes at other salsa clubs.
This course offers a new turn pattern every week and also a rare chance to further your development of ‘Cross-body’, style salsa, as well as experience a few Cuban style moves later in the course.

Investment: this course is being offered at the remarkably low price of £49 for all 6 evenings payable in advance, or £10 per evening if paying as you go.
4. HELP US TO HELP YOU
At everybodysalsa we create classes, each week based on what we estimate each group of dancers are capable of learning each week. However, as you will already be aware, every dancer within a class is at a slightly different level of development, and we all have ‘good nights’, and ‘bad nights’. So why not let us know how you are experiencing each class, both during the class/s and afterwards. Obviously we may not always feel able to act on every comment you may make, but we will give them due consideration, and take up any suggestions when we think it is in the best interest of the club.
Happy dancing,
From,
everybodysalsa

  1. STRICTLY TAKE 2

A NEW COURSE, ‘STRICTLY’ FOR EXPERIENCED DANCERS

 

Level 1 course graduates-

‘STRICTLY TAKE 2’, is a brand new six week course designed for dancers who have already completed an, 'everybodysalsa', 6 week beginner’s' course, as well as for dancers who have already experienced a minimum of 10 weeks salsa dance classes at other salsa clubs. This new course is designed to extend your repertoire of, ‘Cross-body’ style moves and introduce you to more moves from the, ‘Cuban’, salsa style.

 

What to expect:

This course is designed to flow seamlessly on from our, ‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’, beginner’s course allowing existing course graduates to continue to develop your existing skills and turn up the heat under your already impressive dancing skills. Course members can look forward to being gradually introduced to an increasing number of new moves each week, and once you feel comfortable with the level 2 classes, you will be invited to join a ‘level 3’, class to see how it goes!

 

Level 1 course graduates are welcome to join this new ‘STRICTLY TAKE 2’, course at the earlier time of 7.15pm. Your level 2 warm up will be followed with a demonstration of this week’s ‘level 2’, routine. You will then be invited to join in. You will be able to recognise some of the moves and we will demonstrate and explain any new moves as we go along.

 

We will dance the new routine to music. Following this we will split the class to allow you to continue to practice your new routine and iron out any tricky bits, as the more experienced dancers are introduced to a level 3 routine. Both classes can dance there respective routines with music at the end of the class. Immediately after your first level 2 class, we will invite you to stay on the dance floor and continue to practice what you can remember from your new routine.

 

Note. The practice sessions are essential, especially for the, ‘leads’, as it allows you to practice leading the content from the class without a teacher calling out instructions all the time. This freestyle practice is key to enabling you to build your own dance repertoire.

 

Week 1 of your new level 2 class will contain a similar amount of content to your wonderful level 1 routine, and each week of your new course we will introduced you to a new routine, and with each week a little more content will be added, as your ability improves.

 

However if, at any time during your new level 2 course, you find the content a little too much? You have a choice! You can:

 

  1. Stay in the class in the hope that you will eventually get the hang of it.

 

  1. Drop down one gear. You can achieve this simply by joining the level 2 class for part 1 only and move to one side where you can continue to practice these moves throughout the rest of the class.

 

  1. Drop down two gears, by continuing your development by re-joining the level 1 class and practice each previous weeks moves whilst the level 2 class is in session until you feel confident enough to re-join your level 2 class, possibly for the next course! The choice is yours.

 

Following your freestyle period you are welcome to join us in the new level 1 class and help our new dancers find their feet, or continue practicing your new level 2 routine.

 

MORE EXPERIENCED DANCERS:

This New course will consist of 2 or 3 new routines every week. Following each weeks level 2 class you can chose to either recap the level 2 class, or take part in a new level 3, or level 4 routine containing increasingly interesting turn patterns as the course progresses.

This course also welcome returning experienced dancers.  So if you have completed an ‘everybodysalsa’, six week course, or have attended a minimum of 10 classes at other salsa clubs, you are very welcome to join us on Sunday 1st October for ‘ STRICTLY TAKE 2’

 

We are still offering both exciting new courses at the discounted price of just £49 per person for ALL 6 action packed evenings when paid in advance. So remember to book your place by email/ Or bring along your discounted course fee to reception, (cash preferred), when you arrive on the 1st October!

 

2.‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’

As well as learning new enjoyable dance skills, this course gives your friends and family the opportunity to learn how to become a cool salsa dancer.

Feel free to invite your Loved ones tomorrow night. We have changed the format slightly into a celebration, party night, where you can also invite your friends and family to see you in action. They are not obliged to join in the dance, however to offer a little encouragement, we are offering them, ‘FREE ENTRY’, AN INVITATION TO JOIN-IN THE WARM-UP SESSIONS, PLUS A FUN, (NEW STARTERS FRIENDLY) ‘MERENGUE’ CLASS later in the evening. This Sunday is an excellent way for them to experience a salsa club for the first time, as there will be no expectation for them to join in. So don’t forget to bring them along this tomorrow night for a party night to remember.

  1.  EXPERIENCED DANCERS WELCOME

If you have already completed an everybodysalsa’ 6 week beginners course, or you have at least 10 weeks experience with another salsa club, you are welcome to join us this week for either week six of the ‘level 1’, course, or, if you are very experienced, why not join our week 6, ‘level 2’ class!

Our level 1 class will refresh your skills and you’ll be tuned up ready to join our ‘level 2’ class starting on Sunday 19th Feb’, and our level 2/3 classes are the most adventurous of the course so far

  1.  STRICTLY ‘LEVEL TWO AND THREE’!

We hope that you enjoyed last week’s new level 2 and level 3 routines and that you can remember enough of the content to practice it before your new class begins this Sunday! Remember the first freestyle period is there to offer you the opportunity to practice what you can remember from last week before your new class begins. We also recommend that you use the freestyle period following your class/s to practice this week’s new routine before writing it down to keep.

Leads take note: Everybodysalsa, like most salsa clubs usually offers experienced dancers new routines every week. This means that the ‘leads’ will have an ever increasing amount of moves to remember. In our experience, ‘leads’ struggle to remember more than a few of these turn patterns. So to avoid limiting your repertoire, we advise every ‘lead’ to make written notes of each new routine soon after each class. You can then look-up these notes before dancing freestyle at any point in the future. So why not bring them along every week. If you would like any advice developing this ‘additional’ skill, see Alan after the classes.

This week we would like to invite our ‘Level 2’ dancers to join the ‘level 1’ class once again. Our ‘level 1’ dancers are now capable of performing turns and a variety of cross-body moves, and dancing with you in a larger group will give them a better idea what it will be like on the 19th February when they will be joining us in the level 2 class. Note: Taking part in this slightly less demanding class provides you with the chance to ‘polish’ your own steps and moves, as you will have a little more time to consider every aspect of your dancing, whilst you are dancing.

Dancing freestyle with ‘Level 1’, dancers: Do please ask our ‘level 1’ dancers to dance in the freestyle period after the classes. As this helps them feel more at home and improves their confidence and ability. ‘Leads’, please restrict your repertoire to the steps and moves that your ‘level 1’, partner has received instructions for. An easy way to do this is to join in the level 1 class. This will allow them to build confidence in their developing abilities and also develop a little trust in you, as well as improving your own ‘leading’ ability, as you have more time to work on your leading style!

  1. NEW COURSES START ON SUNDAY 19TH FEB’

We hope that you are enjoying the more ambitious, dare I say, ‘exciting’ new moves that have been part of your ‘level 2’, course, and that you will be re-joining us again for ever more interesting ways to use a dance floor. Both New courses start on Sunday 19th February and entrance will be FREE FOR NEW STARTERS!

  1. HELP US START ON TIME (ALL DANCERS).

Please try to arrive in plenty of time before your class, as this allows you time to sign in, get yourself a drink from the bar, have a good chat with your new friends, and get those legs warmed up a little by practicing everything you can remember from last weeks class, and settle-in before the show begins. Doing this also allows us to answer any questions you might have before we all start dancing together. The salsa disco gears-up immediately after your class with hot, hot, Salsa tracks. So use this to revisit everything you can remember until 11pm.

We look forward to dancing with you again this coming Sunday for more Salsa magic,

  1. STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING (NOW CLOSED TO NEW STARTERS):

Well done everybody who joined the course this Sunday. It was really nice to see you all settle in so well. Remember we are here from 7pm for social dancing. Please use this time to recap what you can remember from your class last week and ask either Heather or Alan about anything you are not sure of. Doing this helps you feel as confident as possible this Sunday’s class. And don’t worry if you cannot remember everything, as this week we will re visit ‘leading’ and ‘following’ the clockwise turns before moving on to the move that gives this style of salsa it’s name i.e. The Cross-Body Move’!

Starting with the footwork we will show you the ideal steps to take, which once mastered will allow the ‘leads’, to concentrate on, ‘leading’, at the correct time. Once you get the idea of this lovely move and it gradually begins to work, we expect to see lots of confident smiles grow across every dancers cheeks, as all that concentration begins to pay off and you start to feel like  cool salsa dancers! So be patient with yourself and take advantage of all the ‘freestyle’, sessions throughout the night, as, the more you practice the better it gets!

 

  1. NEW STARTERS (NEW COURSE COMING):

Sorry to those of you who missed out on joining us for this, the first beginner’s course of the year. However all is not lost! As soon as we finalise plans, you will be welcome to join us for the next  ‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’, fun filled six week course that’s STRICTLY for beginners!

 

  1. EXPERIENCED DANCERS WELCOME:

The level 1 course is now closed for new starters. However if you have already completed an everybodysalsa’, 6 week beginners course, or you have at least 10 weeks experience dancing with another salsa club, you are welcome to join the current level 1 course at any point, to refresh your skills before maybe considering joining our next level 2 course!Experienced dancers are also welcome to join us for the, everybodysalsa’  freestyle disco that kicks into gear as soon as the last class completes and continues until 11pm. Entrance for the freestyle club only is just £5, or free with your course.

 

  1. STRICTLY TAKE 2 (STRICTLY 4 EXPERIENCED DANCERS).

It was really pleasing to see you, the more experienced dancers taking time to dance with our most recent club members and contributing to their enjoyment of the evening. Leads please remember to confine your dancing with level 1 partners strictly to the moves they have been introduced to in their class. As your partner needs to practice these moves before they become ready to progress. This week we have an interesting level 2 routine, and also a very interesting level 3 routine for those of you with a little more experience. So hold on to your hats!

 

  1. HELP US START ON TIME (ALL DANCERS).

Please try to arrive in plenty of time before your class, as this allows you time to sign in, get yourself a drink from the bar, have a good chat with your new friends, and get those legs warmed up a little by practicing everything you can remember from last weeks class, and settle-in before the show begins.

Thank you to everybody for supporting our salsa club in 2022. We really enjoyed meeting so many new faces and introducing you to this fantastic Latin dance, and we look forward to helping you master even more enjoyable steps and moves with each passing week in 2023.

 

2. COURSE GRADUATE NEWS

At 'everybodysalsa' we believe in developing 'confidence through competence', the success of which was self-evident at our Christmas party on Sunday 18th December, where we were privileged to witness our wonderful level 1 course members putting into action all those new steps and moves that seemed so strange/impossible at times, when first introduced during the course. Your success has given us confidence, despite a certain virus, to continue into 2023 with 2 New Courses for the New Year. We think that our ‘level 1’, graduates will enjoy the slightly more ambitious, dare I say, ‘exciting’ new moves that will make up your first, ‘level 2’, class THIS SUNDAY 8th January for ever more interesting ways to use a dance floor!

 

3. TWO NEW COURSES FOR A BRAND NEW YEAR

We are ushering in the New Year with 2 New six week Salsa dance courses –

‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’, the New, exciting six week course exclusively for beginners.

and

‘STRICTLY LEVEL TWO’ an even more thrilling six week course that is, ‘STRICTLY’, for experienced dancers!

Both New 2023 courses start THIS SUNDAY 8th January and entrance will be FREE FOR BRAND NEW STARTERS, so why not invite a friend or two to join you, as the more people that join us, the more fun we all have.

 

4. ‘STRICTLY LEVEL 2’ – What is it?

‘STRICTLY LEVEL 2’, is a brand new six week course designed for dancers who have already completed an 'everybodysalsa', six week beginners’ course, as well as for dancers who have already experienced a minimum of 10 weeks salsa dance classes at other salsa clubs. This New Course is designed to extend your repertoire of, ‘Cross-body’ style moves and also introduce you to more moves from the, ‘Cuban’, salsa style.

This course is designed to flow seamlessly on from last year’s, ‘DISCOVER THE SALSA DANCER IN YOU’, beginner’s course allowing existing course graduates to continue to develop your existing skills, and turn up the heat under your already impressive dancing skills. Course members can look forward to being gradually introduced to an increasing number of new moves each week, culminating in up to THREE optional new routines every week, at different skill levels to appeal to new course members and more experienced dancer alike!

This course also welcomes back experienced salsa dancers who have been away for a while. So if you have already completed an 'everybodysalsa' six week course, or have attended a minimum of ten classes at other salsa clubs, you are very welcome to join us THIS SUNDAY 8th January and put some heat into a cold and damp New Year!

Both these exciting new courses continue to be offered at the discounted price of just £49 per person for ALL SIX action packed evenings when paid in advance. So remember to book your place by email/ Or bring along your discounted course fee to reception, (cash preferred), when you arrive THIS SUNDAY 8th January!

 

5. ‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’ - What’s that?

‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’, is a fantastic, ‘NEW’ 6 week salsa dance course that is *exclusively for new starters*. It starts This Sunday 8th January 2022.

The New Year is an excellent time to discover this fantastic dance and find discovering  how learning new dance skills can be so enjoyable. This course gives you the opportunity to meet new friends, keep fit and pump up your immune system whilst possibly transforming what can often be another uninspiring Sunday evening into the best night of the week!

‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’, is designed for everybody who would like to try salsa for the first time, whether you enjoy other forms of dancing, or want to try dancing for the very first time THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU!

So if your aged between 16 and 96, have at least one left foot and can come with a partner or not! Or if your New Year’s resolutions looked anything like this:

 

 

* I WANT TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT THIS YEAR

* WANT A FUN WAY TO KEEP FIT

* WANT TO GET OUT MORE AND MEET PEOPLE

* WANT TO HAVE MORE FUN

* WANT TO BECOME A COOL SALSA DANCER

 

 

You are going to LOVE ‘STRICTLY COME SALSA DANCING’,

WARNING! This course might transform your Sunday evenings into possibly the best night of the week!

 

6. THE FREESTYLE IS PART OF THE COURSE

Remember to, ‘keep on dancing’, after your class and take advantage of our freestyle salsa disco c/w hot, hot, Salsa tracks till 11pm because the freestyle is part of the course. You will already have noticed that salsa dancing requires the development of a ‘co-ordination skill’, and like all co-ordination skills, it requires at least twice as much practice as tuition! This is where the freestyle salsa disco comes in! The target here is to dance freestyle with as many people as possible, at least once before going home. As you do this, you become less dependent on your teacher and begin to feel more confident as you begin to, ‘own’ the dance yourself. If you do this every week, expect to experience a gradual feeling of confidence develop in your own ability. Something that is often accompanied with an increasing sense of enjoyment and well-being. This is one reason why after a few weeks salsa gets very more-ish! Heather and Alan are available during the, ‘freestyle salsa disco’, to answer any questions you might have and ‘go-over’ anything that you would like to improve.

  1. Discover the Dancer in You

        ‘Last chance to join’!

Good news for anybody who would like to join the course, but didn’t make it for the opening night last week:

New starters can join this course on either week 1, or week 2, and that means that new starters are still welcome to join the course this Sunday!

WHY THIS WEEK IS THE LAST CHANCE TO JOIN: We only have time to recap one week’s class before introducing new exciting steps and moves each week, so unless we have made special arrangements, this Sunday is the last chance for new starters to join this course. So do tell your friends and family, so nobody misses out. Please note that your £49 course fees are also due this Sunday.

 

  1. DANCERS WITH PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE

Dancers with previous salsa experience are welcome to join this course at any stage to refresh your skills before progressing to the level 2 class. Experienced dancers can also pay per week, or pay for the course in advance to qualify for a reduced rate, which ever option you choose.

 

  1. WELCOME TO THE LEVEL 2 CLASS:

Welcome to, ‘Level 2’. Everyone who graduated from our level 1, ‘beginners’ course and moved up a gear last Sunday. It was great to see you return for more salsa action, and well done for adapting so well to the more challenging/exciting moves that this class offers.

You can now look forward to experiencing new turn patterns EVERY WEEK, which although can seem a little challenging at first, you will gradually find it easier to take in, as the weeks fly by.

Reminder: Leads, remember to bring along your notepad this week. So that you can write down this week’s new routine.

 

  1. A FEW HANDY TIPS:

Whenever dancers Partners and Leads - step up to a higher class, one of the first things we notice is that the steps can get a little long. So why not use the freestyle periods and the ‘line up’, sessions to re-establish your compact steps, after which you may find each new routine a little easier, and more enjoyable. Note: If there is anything that you would like to revisit either during, or after the class, both Heather and Alan will be happy to help.

Leads: Most leads find it difficult to remember salsa moves from one week to another, which can affect freestyle confidence. An excellent way of overcoming this common problem is to practice each weeks ‘new’ routine, as much as possible, after each class.

Another way to have more moves available is to bring a small note pad with you every week, and make a note of any part of each week’s routine, that you want to remember. (Do this after each class, as memories fade fast).

The next step is to bring your note pad with you every week. Then read and practice your favourite moves again ‘before’ your class. Why not have a go this week let us know how you get on.

Partners: You already understand that roles of ‘Lead’ and ‘Partner’, are very different and that ‘anticipation’ is very hard to avoid. So it is essential that you do not, ‘help’, a ‘Lead’ too much as he develops the tricky task of both learning and remembering each new move. But rather be patient and focus your attention on the skills you need to develop. In this way you will continue to develop your unique ‘Partner’ skills and get the most out of this fantastic dance.

 

  1. HELP US TO HELP YOU:

At everybodysalsa we create each ‘Level 2’ class based on what we estimate each group of dancers are capable of learning each week. However, as you will already be aware, every dancer within a class is at a slightly different level of development, and we all have ‘good nights’, and ‘bad nights’. So do let us know how you are experiencing each class, both during the lesson and afterwards. Obviously we may not always feel able to act on every comment you may make, but we will give them due consideration, and take up any suggestions when we think it is in the best interest of the club.

We recommend arriving by 7pm latest to allow yourself enough time to sign-in, get yourself a drink at the bar and settle in before taking part in the first ‘warm-up’ of the evening. Looking forward to seeing you all again this Sunday evening for more salsa magic,

Happy dancing,

One or two Valentines themed moves! And an extra fun dance class later in the evening! We will also be presenting certificates to our level 1 course graduates, as well as presenting a prize for the best outfit of the evening! We look forward to joining you all for a Sensational celebration Valentines Salsa Party night to remember tomorrow evening in the Ball Room at the Old Fletton Club. Doors Open at 7pm CU There!

 

  1. ‘DISCOVER THE SALSA DANCER IN YOU’

(WEEK 6 THE FINALE)!

This Sunday we welcome our courageous members of the  ‘DISCOVER THE SALSA DANCER IN YOU’, beginner’s course to week 6, the last class in the course and the week when we put the final touches to what it already becoming your first, ‘impressive’, salsa ‘routine’!

Based on steps and moves that you have already been dancing, plus a couple of ‘Valentine Specials!’, this final week of the course is designed to be a celebration of what you have accomplished since you first stepped through the door into the wonderful world of salsa all those weeks ago! Following your class this week you will be presented with your course graduate certificates, and a little later in the evening we have a fun ‘EXTRA PARTY DANCE, that we think you are going to love!

We will also invite you to re-join us on Sunday 20th February to continue your amazing Salsa journey by joining us for our ‘level 2’, class, which is designed to flow seamlessly on from your, ‘beginners’, experience.

We have changed the format slightly this week, to a Valentines theme celebration party night with a Pink and Red theme. So why not put on something special and see if you can win a prize for the best outfit of the night!

 

  1.  EXPERIENCED DANCERS WELCOME

If you have already completed an everybodysalsa 6 week beginners course, or you have at least 10 weeks experience with another salsa club, you are welcome to join us this week for week 6  of the ‘level 1’, course. As joining us for this week 6 class will help to refresh your skills and you’ll be tuned up and buzzing, ready to join our ‘level 2’ class on Sunday 20th February!

Just want to dance? If you are already an experienced dancer and just want to dance freestyle you are welcome to join us for the everybodysalsa freestyle disco. This kicks into gear as soon as the last class is complete, and continues until 11pm. Entrance for the freestyle club is £4, or free with your course.

 

  1.  STRICTLY ‘LEVEL 2’

We hope that you enjoyed last week’s new routine and that you can remember enough of the content to practice it before your new class begins tomorrow night. Remember the first freestyle period is there to offer you the opportunity to practice what you remember from last week before your new class begins. We recommend you arrive early to do this before embarking on this week’s ‘Valentines themed’, new routine!

Leads take note: everybodysalsa, like most salsa clubs usually offers experienced dancers new routines every week and this week will be no exception! So the ‘leads’ will have an ever increasing amount of moves to remember, and in our experience, ‘leads’ struggle to remember more than a few of these turn patterns and simply forget most of the moves that you once found so exhilarating! So to avoid limiting your repertoire, we advise every ‘lead’ to make written notes of each new routine following each class. You can then look-up these notes before dancing freestyle at any point in the future and watch as your freestyle dancing improves! So why not bring a notepad along tonight? If you would like any advice developing this ‘additional’ skill, see Alan after the classes.

This week we would like to invite our ‘Level 2’ dancers to join the ‘level 1’ class once again. Our ‘level 1’ dancers are now capable of performing turns as well as a variety of cross-body moves, and dancing with you in a larger group will give them a better idea what it will be like next week when they join us for their first ‘level 2’, class. Note: Taking part in this slightly less demanding class provides you with the chance to ‘polish’ your own skills, as you will have a little more time to consider every aspect of your dancing, whilst you are dancing.

Dancing freestyle with ‘Level 1’, dancers: Do please ask our ‘level 1’ dancers far a dance in the freestyle period after the classes. As this helps them feel more at home and improves their confidence and ability. ‘Leads’, please restrict your repertoire to the steps and moves that your ‘level 1’, partner has received instructions for. An easy way to do this is to dance only what they have covered in this week’s class and lead them as well as you can. This will allow them to build confidence in their developing abilities and also develop a little trust in you, as well as improving your own ‘leading’ ability. ’Partners’, Do please ask our ‘level 1’, leads for a dance, as they may not feel confident enough yet to ask you. We cannot expect our new, ‘leads’, to ‘lead’, as well as level 2 dancers. So please be patient. When you notice a new ‘lead’, struggling with their roll, one good idea might be for you to let them know what you needed, ‘in terms of a lead’, for you to understand what is being lead.

 

Happy dancing,

  1. STRICTLY TAKE 2

Thanks to Malcolm and Roger for all your help trying to get the music system working before the classes on Sunday and sorry to everybody for the late start and the slightly rushed second routine, which I was impressed to see you all dancing beautifully to the last music track. It was also really pleasing to see you, the more experienced dancers taking time to dance with our most recent club members and contributing to their enjoyment of the evening too. Music system willing we will have a little more time this coming Sunday, to introduce you to one or two more interesting moves for you to play with!

It also allows us to answer any questions you might have before we start dancing. The salsa disco gears-up immediately after your class with hot, hot, Salsa tracks, allowing us to dance till 11pm.

Thank you to everybody who supporting our salsa in2021. We really enjoyed introducing so many new faces to this fantastic Latin dance and watching you grow with confidence with each passing week

 

  1. COURSE GRADUATE NEWS

 

At 'everybodysalsa' we believe in developing 'confidence through competence', the success of which was self evident at our well attended Christmas party on Sunday 12th December, where we were privileged to witness our wonderful course graduates putting into action all those new steps and moves that seemed so strange/impossible at times, when first introduced during the course. This has given us confidence, despite a certain virus, to continue into 2022 with two new courses for the New Year. We hope that our ‘level 1’, graduates enjoyed the more ambitious, dare I say, ‘exciting’ new moves that made up your first, ‘level 2’, class last year, and that you will be re-joining us again THIS Sunday for ever more interesting ways to use a dance floor!
