If you've started to get your head around the basic salsa footwork patterns you might want to try the one day intensive salsa class running at Bar Salsa on Charring Cross Road this Saturday the 25th March 2006. It's branded as a BCB (beginners consolidation and beyond) and is aimed at people who have done a few beginners classes. It is designed to turn you from beginner to a higher level improver in a day. The course is run by Alastair Sadler of the Streetbeat Salsa Company www.streetbeat.co.uk. It begins at 10 in the morning and runs through until about 5.30. Cost is ?40 if you say where you saw the course advertised or ?75 for a mixed couple (one leader one follower). You need to call and book in advance so the numbers are equal - telephone number is 020 8888 5507. If asked where you saw the ad - just say on a forum online -or mention technominx if you don't feel too silly!
The course is repeated every few weeks, but I know they have some space this week - often there is a waiting list. So what are you waiting for - you'll even get to meet me as I'm helping out this week.
If you're a complete newbie and haven't done any salsa or just a class or 2, Streetbeat also does a 'learn to salsa in a day' class for complete beginners three weeks a month. You can book this on the same number. The next complete beginners workshop is the 1st April.
