Kid’s Salsa Ballroom Dance Class

Kid's Salsa Ballroom Dance online video thumbnail

Our next online dance class for the kids will be a ballroom dance class covering Kid’s Salsa. If you want to know more about our ‘offline’ classes click here.

With our Under 8’s Rainbow class we start with a gentle warm-up, followed by some party dances and then today’s dance the Salsa, adapted for younger kids.

The aim is to have a few fun elements that teach basic techniques, before we cover a couple of simple steps of this video’s dance.

Our Kid’s Class Salsa Lesson

In this kid’s class Imogen is going to show us her warm up.

We’ll then try our Elephant Walk again (we taught this last week) before dancing our Heel-Toe Polka (first shown back in our Kid’s Waltz class).

Finally Antony and Immi will take you through some basic Salsa, both solo and with a partner.

The basic steps for the Salsa are a Cucaracha (a rock to the side and close) and our ‘Mambo’ (which is a rock forward, close, rock back, close).

Initially Antony and Imogen will show these steps as Solo, standing side-by-side. Then we will try it with a partner, where you mirror their movements.

We tend to recommend parents act as the leader but feel free to do whatever works for you.

We hope you enjoy this week’s class.
