New Salsa on2 classes in Amsterdam

By september 23, 2022 No Comments
As a follow-up to the successful classes in Rotterdam, Poetic Motion will start teaching salsa classes in Amsterdam on Monday nights starting on October 31st. These classes will be taught by Vivienne Vicente and Selwin Fredriks. With this next step, we want to spread our vision and love for salsa throughout the Netherlands.
In our classes, we focus on:
– Learning and mastering the Eddie Torres Mambo techniques (for both leaders and followers) and general dance techniques
– Awareness of basic salsa techniques, their function and the feeling behind them
– Basic structure of Latin music
– Awareness of the human body and mind
– Applying basic techniques in shines and partnering
– Connecting to yourself, your dance partner and the space around you
– Feeling comfortable and creative in the context of social dance
– Themes like connection, trust, discovering, tension, social dance, music and culture, being understanding etc.
This will make sure that the students become more aware of the different aspects of the dance and culture, to be able to enjoy it more and to become more relaxed on the dance floor!
With their passion for sharing their knowledge, Vivienne and Selwin know how to make others love this beautiful dance and culture in their own unique way.
