Core Moves for Improvers (like an apple core .. applealing!)Core moves does what it says on the tin. Short easy combinations of common moves that draw from all five categories of moves: spins, travelling, shuffling and turns, footwork patterns and garnish (no prior knowledge of these terms are needed).These core moves form a comfort zone of competence. In short you can get out there and do some stuff! Leaders can lead some moves and followers have experienced enough of them to lose the fear of ‘hitting the breaks’ when confronted with an unknown move. The moves vary in each session so repeat to get more moves and a real sense of your hard won progress.The primary goals of this are to:Experience core moves spanning all five categories of moves.To fluidly connect simple moves into combos through ‘rapport’To create awareness of, and tackle anticipation (aka back-leading) through attention and presence.Along the way I’ll present a bunch of conceptual tools that allow dancers to fine tune their skills and apply them to many similar moves and therefore learn faster.Apart from reinforcing the core Salsa Rapido concepts such as:- The seven basic rules of salsa- Understanding and dealing with errors- Where style comes from and applying it
