Dance, Dance, Dance!

In our beginner and intermediate 1 Salsa Bootcamps, we purposely repeat the fundamentals over and over again so our students feel confident in their understanding of Salsa ‘on2.’ Now that your foundation is rock solid, we can get moving! Be ready to dance, challenge your mind and body and break a sweat.

More Complex Shine Patterns

If you’ve seen your favorite Salsa performers light up a stage with fancy footwork, here’s your chance! Since you already have a strong foundation of shines in your repertoire, you can now work on learning even more challenging and funky footwork patterns! Be ready to challenge your memory and coordination!

Complex Partner Combos

There’s an old saying that first you must learn the rules in order to break them. Here is where we start putting that saying to the test! We will introduce more advanced combinations that break the conventional mold and open up your dancing! Leads and folows will be challenged with even more demanding patterns!

Del And Laura are true professionals with so much warmth and kindness. The are experts at paying attention to details and identifying how best to encourage best dance techniques.

Outstanding instruction by outstanding people! If you ever decide to take up salsa, or need to dust off your dance shoes, MMA is the place. The instructors are not only highly skilled and professional, but also a share pleasure to work with. I give my highest rating and recommendation for this truly outstanding dance company.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is this class only 1 hour?
In our beginner Bootcamp, we needed the extra 30 minutes of class time to reinforce and repeat the fundamentals of the dance. Now that we’ve established the habits to succeed, we can fall back to a traditional one hour of class time.
Are there makeup classes?
Great question! In addition to our intermediate 2 Bootcamp, we also offer a weekly drop-in class which is also intermediate/adv level. The difference is, that class is more of a workshop-style class and more free form. Still, you’ll find a lot of value in the Open Yellow Belt class and can use it as a makeup should you miss a Bootcamp class.
What kind of shoes should I wear?
We recommend flexible shoes that are comfortable to wear. Since it is a 90 minutes class, we want you to be cozy! Just make sure the shoes are supportive and won’t stick to the floor, for example, gym shoes.
What clothes should I wear?
Comfortable and casual clothes are a must! We expect to work you out so make sure you don’t come too dressed up! Of course we’ll be having a great time, but prepare to work!
Do I need a partner?
We do our best to have an even number of leads and follows. As such, we don’t require anyone to bring a partner. We also rotate partners frequently to keep everyone engaged.
