Vårstart mandag!

Hei alle sammen!
We know you have been waiting such a long time for dance classes to start.  As we need to work with DRIV we can’t work around them…lol.  The Nordlys festival has stolen our normal times because they had the ‘dosh’ to do so.  But anyways… we are starting tomorrow night!  Whoo hoo!
This semester we are concentrating on dances for the No Siesta Fiesta festival – meaning the dances that we are teaching, you will be able to dance at the fest.  The fest will certainly have a Samba band, a Bossa band, a Cumbia band and a Salsa band. Read more »

Student Filming on Monday

Wanna be famous?
On our first dance night (feb 8. in case you were wondering) we have three German film students coming to class to shoot us (with a camera…lol) for a ‘non-verbal’ documentary they are making about Tromsø.  I’m sure they won’t be too intrusive and you might need to sign release forms.  But this is a great opportunity for us to publicise the club internationally .
If you are particularly film-shy just dance behind the camera .  I’m sure we will be able to see the film when finished too.

Salsa On2 Basic Timing

Hey everyone!
Ok – Here is a very quick instructional video of Salsa On2 below. Now, in class, we have learnt the basic movements but next week we will be learning the special Salsa/Mambo On2 timing. Even though we have been starting ‘on 2′ the timing really comes from which step is being held. On1 holds in the middle of the basic step (as we have been doing at the moment in class) but On2 holds on the ‘back’ of a rock-step. This makes the On2/NY Salsa more rhythmical. So… have a look at the timing and see if you can pic it up before class . Read more »
