Our syllabus is going to be going through some changes in the following months, to put more emphasis on being able to dance with a partner to modern music you'll hear in regular clubs around Leeds.
This is going to mean some exciting changes as we teach you different foot patterns to arm you against whatever the DJ might throw at you...
Steps like: Marching Step, Salsa Step, Tap Step, Triple Step, Swing Step - and if you make it that far, Total Freestyle.
Now we're not the first people to bring partner dancing bang up to date, West Coast Swing dancers have been doing this for years. Just check out Jordan Frisbee and Tatiana Mollmann dancing to Dubstep!
So Emma and I, set ourselves a challenge - could we dance to every track in last week's UK Top 40 charts? Well the answer is yes, with the foot patterns above we could dance with the right feeling to every one of the tracks.
Here's what we found and the foot patterns you'll need. Stick with us over the next few months and we'll teach you the steps and you'll be ready to dance any time, any place, any music...
Nearly a decade ago, I resolved to run a salsa night the way I thought it should be run and the idea for StreetSalsa was born. The rest as they say is history..
I've made some of the best friends you could wish for through dancing, and want to share what a life-changing experience dance can be.
That video is hella cool :) if you can dance like that you can dance to anything!
Yeah, I love the video too, Jenny. I mentioned it on one of the first posts on the website: What dances have inspired you? Loads of awesome videos in the comments over there!
On another note about this post. For me, dancing is at its most fun when it's unexpected. When you're just out with your mates, and they're playing... whatever they're playing. It captures everything dance is about for me.
Being able to dance to anything, plays a massive part in that. And it's kind of obvious, because whenever we go out anywhere... it's what we do.
