Weekly Group Classes:
We are currently taking a break from Salsa Classes at the moment, but we are hosting Kizomba Classes every Tuesday evening:
Tuesday Kizomba Classes
Lesson Fee: R80pp
Where: OTG Bar & Kitchen
Address: Cambridge Crossing, Cnr Stonehaven and Witkoppen Rd - Paulshof
Beginners 7.15pm - 8.15pm
Improvers 7.15pm - 8.15pm
Intermediate 8.30pm - 9.30pm
Kizomba is a wonderful social Dance – Meaning “Party” and nicknamed “The African Tango”. No need to bring for a partner as it is group lessons. No need to book or register – just show up. So come along for some dancing fun.
Pre-Paid Lessons - R280 upfront for 4 lessons, which do not have to be used consecutively.
What to Expect:
On arrival you pay a lesson fee and receive a sticker as receipt of payment. Grab a drink at the bar, find a seat and get chatting to the other Salsa/Kizomba-Holics. You will know when we are about to start as one of the appointed instructors will be calling you to join them on the dance floor. The instructors will teach the 1st half of a routine and then put it together with a song, we then a break for 5 minutes, to rehydrate. After the break the 2nd half of the routine is taught and then danced/practiced to another song. To end - we have a warm down song (old and new students are expected to join in). We then encourage the students to stay after the class, practice and enjoy the Latin Rhythms.
What to Wear:
All things smart to causal - just not your gym gear. To start off with it is not necessary to have dance shoes, but if you enjoy dancing, it is best to have the right tools. Check Out: www.hnsshoes.co.za And just so you know: rubber soles e.g. takkies/trainers are not advised as you tend to stick to the floor. Office work shoes for men go down well and for the ladies a bit of a heel helps you into your turns. Please Do Not wear loose sandals or flip flops.
Levels & When to move Up:
Level 1: Beginners
You must have completed 4 to 5 beginner lessons, with practice after the classes before moving on to level 2. With no practice, you will not improve. After class, turn to the first person you see and ask them for a dance. Once you are completely comfortable with the basic Salsa steps and turns, you may move on to level 2.
Level 2: Improvers
Here you learn the fundamental moves of Salsa/Kizomba, giving you the best foundation to be a great advanced dancer. So don’t rush this class, stick it out! In this class we have a 7 week syllabus, which you need to have completed the syllabus 3 times before even considering moving to the next class. Here it is always advised to ask your instructor if they think you are ready to move up another level.
Level 3: Intermediate/Advanced
In this level, we teach you a new sequence every week, giving you new ideas to put into your dancing. You are not expected to remember everything, but make sure you take away one new move, and practice it after class and try to implement it at the next Salsa Party.
We offer private lessons in: Salsa, Bachata & Kizomba
