i2i Salsa Musical Interpretation & Psycology (‘if music be the food of the jungle!)

Partner dancing is expression through interactions with our partners and the music.

Interaction with the music is termed 'musical Interpretation' and our interaction with another human is psychology, hence Music and Psyc..

This course is not a bunch of moves, styling or footwork drilled through to a count.
It may bring up your thoughts feelings and beliefs that challenge you.

This course is for improver level and above salsa dancers who are looking to energise their salsa through looking at things in a different way. It goes to the heart of the question: Why do we dance? If it’s for fun, how can we have more fun and what stops us?
The answer is that it’s surprisingly easy to have better dances more often.
There’s also the opportunity to use salsa to build your confidence and resilience.

It uses models and exercises that you will probably not be familiar with but these will allow you to discover the underlying psychology and ways to change the way you dance or to recognise that no change is necessary.

Musical Interpretation: Using the music to inspire and influence your dance.
Often overlooked, musical interpretation is your best friend when you work with it and your worst enemy if you choose to ignore it.
There are two approaches to any discussion of musical interpretation: The first is deconstructive where we pull the music apart to understand how it fits together. The second is holistic where we explore how the music makes us feel and how it inspires our nuanced movements. This course covers both approaches including:

Salsa Timing: beats, bars and breaks
The Salsa Rapido holistic framework of musical interpretation (how to use the music)
Historical timeline of salsa music including salsa club sub-genres (bachata, merengue, cumbia, son, etc...)
The instruments of a typical salsa band and their rhythmic contribution.
Simple techniques that add musically inspired interpretations to any move.

Each point on the course is made through moves and exercises so you'll be dancing all day.

All Salsa Rapido Improvers to Intermediate salsa courses (i2i) are designed to take post-beginner salsa dancers into the world of freestyle salsa dancing so you can get into dancing at the salsa clubs.

As with all Salsa Rapido courses, it is a genuine foundation course spanning the regional styles and popular moves.

They are intensive and offer real progress and achievement within a fun, friendly and supportive environment where experienced and less experienced participants help each other.
The program is designed as a compliment to your existing classes or as a stand alone path to club/social dancing and advanced salsa levels
Each course consists of four hours of actual tuition on one day. This does not include coffee breaks, lunch period, Q&As or practice sessions!
