What you'll do
Guest arrive at venue at a set time, they start their basic salsa lessons with an a quick explanation of where salsa music and dance comes from and its roots . We get to know each other and what country they are from. This lasts 10 - 15 min. Then we move into the basic step class - showing them the 3/2 - 2/3 pattern of clave and salsa dancing on one or on two ( the beats where you start dancing ) . Then move to side to side, back rock, forward and backwards steps ( very basic anyone can do this) . Then pair them together so they can dance in pairs showing them basic turns. The whole class takes 45 to 60 min ....After the class we begin the socia dance part, where I perform salsa classics and they dance with locals or themselves with myself and locals that always come. I make it super fun and relaxed. If they want to take an advanced class this is not the place . This is for people that want to try and have fun with locals and maybe learn a little about salsa and latin culture.
My name is Melina Almodovar known as "The Salsa Doll" "La Muñeca de la Salsa" I am a salsa singer/performer and instructor I host two nights a week in the city of Miami salsa dance socials where people can come and learn the basic steps of salsa dancing and enjoy salsa dancing with locals. It is an interactive experience where I first teach the basics of salsa dancing then y perform salsa music and have guest join in . It's super fun time where you get to hang out at some of the best local spots in Miami and meet awesome locals at the same time learn how to salsa dance like they do here in Miami!
