LEARN A SALSA ROUTINE
Many of our students at Salsa Classes Colombia dream of showcasing and learn a salsa routine. That’s why we thought it would be a great Idea to offer you guys a space to do so!
The Concept: Working side by side a professional choreographer will be a great Salsa and confidence booster! You can add this as part of your Dance Pack or Bootcamp, but if you’re not doing any of those, no worries! You can go and create your choreography from scratch!
How it works: You’ll work with a professional Choreographer to put together a short performance to show at a suitable venue depending on availability. The amount of time you will dedicate to the choreography will vary depending on your existing skill level.
Included: You’ll have 1-on-1 private rehearsals with a professional choreographer who will teach you new salsa steps and help you with overall technique and styling. He/She will also create an original choreography just for you to use. On top of that, we’ll also include the music edition for your performance.
WHAT WE’RE ALL ABOUT
Creating your own show will help you get on top of your Salsa Dance Skills, boost your confidence and create the best memories ever! Chat with us on Facebook Messenger to get started!
Being on stage is one of the most invigorating experiences an artist could ever have. It helps you push past your limits, build up your confidence and most importantly have lots of fun!
Confidence Booster: Performing for an audience is a great way to show people what you’ve learned! It is a really fun experience that boosts your confidence and lets you be the star of the show!
Learn A Salsa Routine: Of course, since you’re going to be working with a professional choreographer your salsa moves will get so much better! You’ll learn new turns and improve your body styling.
Ready for Anything: Even though the focus is getting you ready for your own show, our teachers will show you how you can apply all the moves you’ll learn from stage to social dancing! It’s a win-win!
Loads of Fun: Creating a choreography is always a fun process. Yes, you’ll be working with a pro choreographer, but your ideas are more than welcome. Let your creativity loose for a moment and have the best time!
Better Technique: You will not only learn a salsa routine but you will also understand how it works, where movements come from, proper placement and alignment for the body and all the insights professional dancers know very well.
Pro Dancer Smoothness: There is always something mesmerizing about seeing a professional dancer on stage, you’ll begin to work on the fluidity in movement and smoothness that is only reached through hard practice.
Since we’re all about customizing our students’ experience, this could be no exception, could it? So here we have put together a couple of options so you can make the most out of your show!
SOCIAL DANCE SHOWCASE
This is a more relaxed kind of show focused mainly on social dancing. You will learn a salsa routine, of course, but we will focus more on enjoyment rather than perfection. You will have 30 hours of 1 on 1 dance rehearsals with a pro choreographer. On this occasion, you will dance with a partner (your choreographer most likely) and you can invite your friends over as an audience for your showcase.
Ok, now, if you want to step up your game, this will be a great option for you! This time we will focus on the more professional side of things. You will be working on spins, turns, footwork, and even some acrobatics! You will have 30 hours of 1 on 1 dance rehearsals with your Choreographer. An assistant will come occasionally to train you in acrobatics and overall flexibility. You will dance with a partner and of course, you can invite your friends over.
Well now if you’re feeling like you want to shine like the sun this will be perfect for you! You can become the Star of the night by doing a Solo Performance. You can choose to do your Solo either as a Social Dance Showcase or an Artist Performance. Whatever you go for, you’ll get at least 30 hours of 1 on 1 dance rehearsals. Of course, you can invite your friends, family, neighbors, the aliens. Everyone is welcome to see you dance!
To customize your performance more, we offer you a couple extra benefits that you can add to your show to make it more special. Please bear in mind that they all come at an extra cost.
Costume: You can choose to either rent or buy professional salsa dance attire for your performance. We know trustworthy providers who have great dance costumes in stock.
Make-Up: If you want to go full glam for your show, we can also hire a professional make up artist to highlight your most beautiful features and create a stunning, iconic look for your performance.
Hair-styling: If you’re on the full glam vibe, besides makeup we can also hire a professional stylist to style your hair, complement your make up look and make you look as beautiful as you can be.
By default we include a phone-recorded video of your performance, but hey, if you’ve come all the way to this, you’ll probably want a more professional option to capture this special time in your life, so here it goes:
Studio Video: If you decide to have your performance at the dance studio, we will book one of the classrooms, bring your friends and a professional videographer over to capture every single moment of the performance and take some really nice pics!
Iconic City Video: This video option is thought out to show your choreography and all the amazing places you visited in Colombia. We will do several takes in the most Iconic Places of the City you’re in and put them together in the final product.
Stage Performance Video: We are close friends with some of the most popular salsa clubs in town and they do performances quite regularly. You can choose to perform there and we will, of course, send our pro videographer to capture this moment.
They are professional dancers with many years of experience in teaching, dancing and competing. They will help you learn a salsa routine. Click on them to see their profiles.
Getting ready for performance can be really intimidating, but don’t worry! We’re here to guide you through the whole process and make this an unforgettable experience. Performances generally last for about 4 minutes, aka, you will dance to a full salsa song. We know? 30 hours for only 4 minutes!!! Crazy! But the feeling you get afterward is completely worth it.
Our choreographers have great experience and patience and will go to your pace. You will have a whole support team around you to help with anything you might need, give you tips and advice, help you get around the city, book accommodation if you need to, recommend great salsa bars for you to practice and so much more. We’re really looking forward to welcoming you to our community!
