Curious to get a taste of what it takes to be on stage? These 6 week studies (Études) in movement allow you to learn and perform a short choreography focused on a particular area/feel of Latin dance.  Challenge your ability to retain and perform a choreography and  explore musicality. Celebrate your achievement by strutting your stuff ‘on stage’ at local events!

Much of what we do in Salsa On2 is founded on movements born of the mambo era. Big band, high energy music informed an upbeat flashy style that borrowed from cuban tradition and blended it with American dances like tap and jazz. As such it is a fitting starting point for the iFreeStyle.ca Études.

Important Notes:
  • There will be no “costumes required” rather we will coordinate colours/outfits and/or wear iFreeStyle.ca gear (will vary by project)
  • Timelines are already compressed so you must attend all 6 classes OR book a private lesson with [email protected] to catch up for any missed work.
