Partner Salsa

Partner Salsa by Philly Dance Fitness

Can’t stop yourself from nodding along to an infectious salsa rhythm but you don’t have the slightest idea how to move your feet? Try our intro to partner salsa series and we’ll get you ready for the Latin club in no time.

In this beginner course, we’ll cover the basic step, cross-body lead, right turns, and more advanced combinations and styling as you progress. By the end of the monthlong session, you’ll have a foundation of moves to hold your own at a Latin dance club.

Aside from salsa basics, the lessons will focus extra attention on partner connection and lead/follow skills to help you become comfortable jumping into any social dance setting, whether that be a ballroom dance or a wedding reception.

Since partnering requires more technique and practice than our ongoing dance fitness programs, we strongly encourage you to sign up for the entire series. Your dance skills will benefit from the consistency, plus you’ll save a nice chunk of change. Pre-paying for the month gets you each class for only $10. We’re fairly certain you won’t find a better deal anywhere else in Center City. If space allows, drop-in price is $15 per class.

No need to come with a partner because you’ll rotate in class. However, to ensure that we have an even distribution of leads and follows, we will only be offering 10 discount passes of each – so grab yours while you can! Note: You do not need to be male to be a lead, or female to follow. You choose which footwork you want to learn.
