One of our main strengths is the use of a structured teaching program:

The programs were developed through years of dancing and teaching experience and are being constantly updated by the Salsa del mando team.

The main idea is to teach the salsa students basic elements at every level so that they create their own combinations and develop their own style according to their interpretation of the music. By promoting variations on the fundamental elements of salsa dancing we strengthen the ladies "following" skills as well as the men's ability to "lead".

Please have a look at my "Salsa Ten commandments" before you jump to the dance floor:

  1. The man leads
  2. The lady follows
  3. The lady is a princess and should be treated accordingly (breaking her arms and spinning her to death may not be the way to make her feel good)
  4. Keep the "hook"
  5. Keep the appropriate tension
  6. Respect your fellow dancers- stepping on other dancers feet is not a friendly gesture
  7. The teacher isn't always right (but I didn't say that).
  8. Keep the rhythm
  9. Listen to the music
  10. Smile!!!
Salsa is the stage for a playful flirt between the Lady and the Macho. The "dance flirt" is a key element and shouldn't be forgotten while on the dance floor. Remember: both dancers are trying to render their own, individual interpretation of the music while simultaneously reacting to their partner's movements.
