Sistema method of dance instruction
Salsa is danced as a series of patterns all strung together.
All else being equal (the music, the location, the partners, the patterns), it is your dance lessons that will determine your ability to dance confidently and enjoyably.
We use a method of dance instruction called Sistema. It is the easiest and fastest way to learn how to salsa dance because it was developed to look after the underlying fundamentals found within all partner dancing.
The key fundamentals are comfort within movement, tension control (your own, not your partner's), and connection. And specifically for the men, delivering in-class instruction in a manner that allows you to remember and execute all the patterns you learn when on the dance floor, outside of the school.
With the Sistema method, your present level of ability has nothing to do with your potential. Anyone can be a great salsa dancer!
Special note: If you've tried slasa classes before, and the lessons didn't go well for you, don't give up just yet. If you didn't quite 'get it,' it's probably because of one of only two reasons.
Reason one:You are overly tense and you are completely unaware of it. This can be looked after with proper instruction.
Reason two:You are not getting the rhythm. Rhythm is quite contagious, so it's not something that really needs to be taught. The problem is some people try to hold rhythm in two different places in their bodies at the same time. This will confuse anybody. Most people have never heard this before so it's not a possible fix for them as their assumption is they are rhythmically challenged. Not so...the solution for this is good instruction.
