The Only Place You Can Learn Salsa On 2 In Essex

Until now, Essex based On 1 dancers wishing to expand their social dance skills to include New York Style On 2 would have had to travel into London to try a class, or attend a congress to do an introductory workshop.

This is inconvenient enough at the best of times but even more challenging now with rising fuel costs, ULEZ zones, congestion charge, tube strikes and general disruptions to public transport.

So now you don’t have to!

My private dance studio in Brentwood is a hub for social Salsa dancers wishing to take their social Salsa dancing to the next level by learning to dance On 2.

Although I offer an 8 week intensive course to give dancers a thorough grounding in Mambo and Salsa On 2, this requires a bigger commitment which you may not be ready for.

If this is you, then my Mambo Workshop is the perfect opportunity to dip your toe in the water and decide if dancing On 2 is for you.


Why Learn Salsa On 2?

I often say that On 2 is not a timing, it’s a feeling.

A way of hearing the music and capturing the rhythmic essence of it.

There are a few different ways of dancing Salsa On 2, and the reality is that On 2 dancers tend to dance to what’s most prominent in the music rather than sticking rigidly to generic counts. 

This requires more understanding of Salsa music, timing, and different styles within the On 2 umbrella.

It also requires more nuanced communication between lead and follow,  to create a fun and harmonious shared musical adventure.

It’s true that the majority of dancers who get through the initial learning curve of transitioning to On 2 find they prefer it, and will go out of their way to attend events which are geared more for the On 2 dancer.
