Salsa Basic Footwork - Timing & Speed For The Nightclub

taught by Rached Hayek

Course description

Have you gone to salsa classes, but can't quite figure out how to dance on time to the songs you hear in the club?

Do you hear the timing of the songs in the club, but you can't get your feet to move fast enough to the songs?

This course is designed to fill in the gaps that your salsa classes miss. Salsa classes are focused on turn patterns and how to lead and dance with your partner. This focus means they generally don't go into showing you how to actually stay in time and dance fast like you need to in the club to most of the songs. 

Girls hate it when you can't dance in time, and they hate it if you can't keep up with the song, and it limits your dancing with girls and general enjoyment, because girls don't want to dance with you again and again if you can't stay in time or dance to fast songs. Dancing is not only about patterns, but about staying time with the music, because moving your body in rhythm with music is what dancing actually is. 

Rhythm is an exact art, and you only have to be slightly off to be considered a bad or average dancer. 

This course is your remedy. All you have to do is play the video and dance along with me as I dance with the salsa music. I have taken out the guess work. There are 16 different speeds and you dance for 90 seconds at each speed before you move on. There are four levels, with four speeds in each level. Start from the beginning, and when it gets too fast, go back and start from the beginning again, or stick to the video that is at your comfortable limit that you can repeat for the duration of the video.

I developed my timing and built my speed this way, and I was horrible when I started and couldn't stay in time, and was too slow for the music. You will see progress every time you dance with these videos. Put them on and spend 10 to 20 minutes a day dancing with them, and your speed and timing will develop to an amazing level in 1 to 6 months, depending on where you are starting and how often you train.

Now get started and get your timing and speed up to the level you need it to be to have even more fun on the dance floor!

I wasn't born a natural singer. I watched as my naturally talented siblings learnt at incredible speed, and wondered why I was having so much trouble improving at vibrato, runs, pitch and rhythm.

I turned my passion for music, into a passion for learning. Slowly over 15 years, through trial and error, ups and down of progress and plateaus, I finally came to a place where I learnt how to transform myself as quick as possible and in a fun way, and created a way to share this with others, so they can do the same, without the need to see a teacher every week, as I didn't and neither do you.

Here I hope to provide you with unique resources, and ask of you only a dedication to practice 10 minutes or more a day, a hunger to learn, and maybe a checkup every now and then with me, to correct any errors and help with weak spots, if needed.

It has been incredibly fun learning, and continuing to learn, and I hope you join me, and learn my easy to follow step by step approach to becoming an advanced singer/guitarist/songwriter.
