It is important to have a realistic expectation of the process required to learn to dance Salsa. First, I would like to say that you will NOT be able to salsa after one class. Why? There are may moving parts to dancing with a partner. You have to learn the steps, timing, combinations, and how to lead or follow and how to listen to the music. Yes! You have to learn what instrument you are dancing to. If you really want to DANCE and not fumble through steps then my advice would be to commit yourself to at least 8 classes. You will also have to commit to memorizing the steps. This means practicing on your own time enough to know when your instructor says get on your 1 you know which position your foot should be in and where your body weight should be transferred. Once you have your steps memorized everything else seems to fall into place and you will have much more confidence on the dancefloor.
