How to Find the Beat in Salsa Music (4 Week Free Course)

Welcome to Finding the Beat, a 4-week course designed to help you overcome the number one challenge ALL new salsa dancers face: finding the beat in salsa music and dancing on time.

By the end of this course you will be able to…

  • Better understand the structure of music
  • Count music
  • Hear the beat in salsa music
  • Find the 1 in salsa music
  • Stay on time while dancing salsa with much higher success


After hearing countless struggles and student requests for more info, I knew I had to make this course. It’s almost impossible to find good info on the internet on how to find the beat and develop a sense of salsa timing. In fact, most instructors skip it entirely. It’s insane.
