Learning Salsa Dance Steps Effectively

Jun 24, 2008
You may have heard the phrase "practice makes perfect". Yes it is true because constant practice can really lead you to perfection and this is applicable to salsa dancing. By practicing salsa dance steps, you can master dances like cuban salsa.

Practicing away from the class is an essential part of the learning process and you should be dancing salsa as frequent as you can. It is of great importance to practice the right moves correctly.

When you start, you have take it in slow step moves and count out loud. As you learn each of the steps and the timing you will be able to speed up what you are performing.

Choose some slow tempo or you start your salsa dancing without music. Just by counting, you can later move to faster tracks as you become more efficient at the timing and foot work.

If your class provides free dancing after the class use it to practice the moves you have just learned to get them clear and fixed in your mind; remember to right them down.

If you cannot practice right after the lesson spend some time at home with your notes performing for at least half an hour within in the next 2 days after the lesson.

Below are some steps that can help you when you practice:

1. Look a dance partner to practice with. Usually, people come to classes on their own; this presents them with a problem as they have no one to practice with. Find yourself a practice partner from your class who desires to put the work in with you to elevate their Salsa dancing skills.

2. If you have no practice partner, do not worry, you may think that this is a slightly silly suggestion but bare with us. We have all sang into an imaginary microphone or played air guitar at home; oh come on of course you have; no practice partner does not mean you cannot practice!

It is time to dance with an imaginary dance partner step out the move and steps as if you have a partner, remember count out loud to the music.

3. Repeat the same sequence again and again until you are already familiar with the steps. Learning is an art form and its effectiveness depends on your learning skills. Doing the sequence all over again can effectively make you to master the salsa dance

4. Dance with every body you can. We have said before that Salsa is a social dance and you can make a sociable experience with it; its part of what makes it so enjoyable. This will help you progress your salsa dancing skills.

These are some useful tips which you can apply when you want to learn salsa dance steps effectively. See you on the dance floor
