Intermediate Lesson 3: Song Structure

Note: This is a sample lesson to give you a taste of Patrick and Scarlet’s teaching methodology. You can sign-up for the full salsa program here.

Now that you’ve learned an individual move and a pattern, let’s switch things up and dive into some musicality.

Understanding what’s happening in the music and anticipating what’s to come is what makes the difference between an alright social dancer and a great one. In this lesson you’ll learn how salsa music is structured as Patrick walks you through two pieces of music step-by-step. If dancing is all about connecting your movement with the music, this is the first step to getting there.
