SON Workshops

Saturdays 11 & 18 December

Son Cubano - the mother of salsa.


A very gentle and elegant dance. Son is often played during salsa classes or during social dancing, although you may just have thought it was slow salsa.


We will be using traditional Son music, some of which you may well know. But once you dance Son you will hear familiar music differently.


Be careful when researching Son Cubano on the internet, many videos are of cabaret style, with very flamboyant performances.   



The first two sessions were in November and covered basic rhythm, timing and footwork. Then we put it all together in a couple of simple combinations. 


We'll review those combinations in the next session and then add to them.


Please contact me to book your place.



Please note COVID PRECAUTIONS for these workshops


For anyone attending these workshops I will ask to see your NHS card (or other evidence) showing that you are double jabbed.
