Whether you're looking to review moves you already know or want to learn new salsa moves, The Salsa Library has you covered! Each of our 80+ videos offers in-depth instruction of Salsa moves, as well as the most common tips and corrections we give during in-person classes. From solo footwork to partnering moves, styling and even Rumba basics, we have lots of moves waiting for you. Plus, we are committed to bringing you new videos regularly, so there will always be something new to learn or re-discover!
We bring over a decade of dance instruction to each video and go beyond just move breakdowns. Each lesson also brings you the most common tips, tricks, pitfalls and corrections we tend to impart to our students. Whether you've done an Outside Travelling Turn once or a thousand times, there are always new layers to add and more nuance you can bring to your practice, and you will find both in these videos.
Ana is the owner and founder of Azucar, as well as our definitive proof that anyone can learn to dance. Discouraged from pursuing dance from a young age, she grew up convinced that she had two left feet. She (slowly) took up salsa in 2008, fell in love with social dancing, and never looked back. She loves deepening her salsa and bachata skills in equal measure, as well as exploring new dance styles. A lifelong learner and educator, Ana is passionate about the pedagogy of dance and is always looking for ways to tweak and improve her own teaching as well as Azucar’s teaching style and philosophy.
Talek began dancing in his early 20’s; he took lessons from anywhere he could and the more he learned, the more he discovered his new passion in life. Having no prior dance experience proved challenging. It wasn’t until he moved to Ottawa that he overcame that challenge by exposing himself to a new level of dancing. Today, Talek can be found performing on stage, social dancing (his favorite thing to do) and continuing to try and best himself. Talek is thrilled to now be able to share his passion in the classroom and help give back to the Latin dance scene.
