Schedule Of Salsa Classes


Beginner Salsa:
January 23 - February 20
Wednesdays, 7:00-8:15 PM
This class is for people who are new to the dance, or for those who want a refresher course.  This class will focus on the principles of leading and following, basic steps and turns, and cross-body leads.  We will also teach Merengue and Bachata.

Beginner Rueda:
January 23 - February 20
Wednesdays, 8:30-9:45 PM
This class teaches you a salsa group dance that first became popular in Cuba.  Everybody dances as a couple.  As rueda means "wheel," couples stand in a circle.  During the dance there is a constant changing of partners, which makes it a vivid and joyful spectacle.  As seen in the nightclub scene of the movie, "Dance with Me," rueda is of high energy and a lot of fun.  The class will progress quickly so previous salsa experience is required.

Venue: All classes will be at:
Channing Murray Foundation  (1209 West Oregon, Urbana), at the corner of Matthews and Oregon, Urbana. 

Each session (5 classes in total) is $40.  Register only with cash or check.
No partner is required.
