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 50+ videos offers in-depth instruction of our Salsa Level 2 and Salsa Level 3 moves, as well as the most common tips and corrections we give during in-person classes. From solo footwork to partnering patterns, we have lots of moves waiting for you. Plus, we are committed to bringing you new videos regularly, including more footwork and partnering moves, technique and styling elements, 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.
Each video lesson includes a dedicated discussion section. Ask questions, help answer other students' questions, get feedback from instructors, or just chat and share some words of encouragement with your fellow dancers! Your comments make us better, and we can't wait to connect with you!
We start with over 50 videos breaking down salsa footwork and partnering moves at Level 2 and Level 3. That's already lots to learn, and we plan to bring you fresh videos each month, including more solo and partnering moves, warm-ups, shine and partnering patterns, technique and styling elements.
