LEVEL DESCRIPTIONS
The numbers of years of training mentioned in the level descriptions are directional, as everyone develops at their own pace. Especially at the second and third levels, we encourage you to stay for several seasons, as there are a lot of things to learn. If you are wondering which level suits you the best, feel free to contact us and ask more: info@flama.fi. Repeating and practicing the basics always improves enormously, so we also recommend attending courses that are lower than your actual skill level.

 

LEVEL 1 (new beginners)
This level starts from scratch, so no previous dance experience is required. At this level, we will learn basic techniques, the most common basic figures, and technique of leading and following. In addition, we will get excited about the wonderful atmosphere of Cuban salsa in general!

 

LEVEL 1+ (0.5–1 year)
This level is ideal for those who know the basics of couple salsa and have attended classes weekly for about six months. The most common basics like enchufla, di le que no, di le que si, setenta, sacala and vacilala are already familiar to you. This course continues with the basics, expands the knowledge, and we practice to vary and combine already learned basics in new ways.

 

LEVEL 2 (1–2 years)
If you have been dancing couple salsa weekly for about a year, you feel you know the basics of couple salsa and dancing with other dance partners is already going well, this is probably the right level for you. We will deepen our skills from the basic figures to slightly more challenging variations and figures, and we will also delve more into the use of the body than before.

 

LEVEL 3 (about 2–3 years)
The third level is suitable for those who have been dancing couple salsa weekly for about a couple of years. At this level, skills that we have become familiar with at the previous levels will be deepened, varied and practiced. In addition, we will learn new figures and enhance the use of the body.
LEVEL 4 (about 2.5 years +)
This level is suitable for those who have danced couple salsa for several years. At this level, skills that we have become familiar with at the previous levels will be deepened, varied, perfected and practiced. In addition, we will learn new figures and challenge the use of the body. At this level, there is already a greater focus than before on interpreting music, styling, and how to turn dance into a shared musical experience.
