COURSE DESCRIPTIONS:
(BEGINNER, ADVANCED BEGINNER, AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL CLASSES)

SALSA On2:
This is a progressive Salsa On2 course designed for absolute beginners, and beginners with some experience that are interested in learning the basics and fundamental components to dancing Salsa.
This course is also perfect for On1 dancers that are interested in transitioning to On2.
Learn the foundational techniques to understanding the history, culture, music, structure, timing, etc. of Salsa On2.

This course aims to introduce and build upon the fundamental lead/follow techniques, key steps, shines, and partner-work connection that will further develop your social dance experience. The course will also include a breakdown of the structure and components of Salsa music and its history.

Our Salsa system is a three-tiered process designed to help you #findyourfire. Our methodology is simple. We don't just focus on teaching you steps, we focus on bringing out the feeling, flavour and fire in each and every single dancer. The perfect blend of #wherefeelingmeetstechnique!
— BACHATA:
This progressive course aims to introduce, familiarize, and provide an understanding of how Bachata is danced in the Dominican Republic. Learn the fundamental components for dancing Bachata, including but not limited to, fundamental footwork, lead and follow steps, and patterns. The course incorporates a breakdown of the basic Bachata timing of each of the instruments, as well as a discussion of the rhythmic patterns of Bachata.

Bachata is just Bachata! The skill set developed through our system is transferable to any «style» of Bachata you wish to dance, whether it be Traditional, Modern, Urban, or Sensual. Learn the mechanics of weight transfer, body movement (#bootyaction), turn technique, footwork, musicality and partner connection.
The Araguacu system will help you develop your own #bachataflow, #style, and personality on the dance floor!
— ****PRE-REQUISITE REQUIREMENTS FOR HIGHER LEVEL CLASSES:
-Must have graduated from our Beginner level classes before commencing Advanced beginner or Intermediate level classes. (Recommended to have taken at least 2-3 sessions of Beginner classes with us)
-For current students or students transitioning from another school, instructor approval is required to be admitted into our Advanced beginner or Intermediate level classes.
