HOW DO I
KNOW WHAT LEVEL I AM?
Joby ‘Brava’ Productions takes pride in the
opportunity to give quality instruction. In
order for us to do that, we will need to know at
what level to place you.
You could always call the office at (562)
882-4083 and speak to Joby to help you determine
what level you are.
Many times it will be difficult to say unless you
come in and the instructor gives you a quick test
Everyone learns at different speeds. So the
following descriptions may vary to individuals.
Please read the following to give
you a guideline to our levels:
This is for those who have never taken Salsa
instruction or are just starting to learn Salsa
(less than 3 months experience). You will receive
instruction that will effectively teach you the
basic steps and patterns, musicality, and will give
you a jump-start into the upper levels.
This is for those who have taken some basics already
but need to still smooth out their dancing to
properly transition between each step or pattern.
Also learn how to feel confident in proper leading
and follow techniques.
At this level you should already have your basics
mastered and are ready to begin using some styling,
footwork/shines and get into more technical lead and
follow. You must be ready to upgrade your dancing
with a bigger and more detailed repertoire of moves.
You will now be given less detail with
certain techniques that will always repeated,
expected to pick up quicker and incorporate more
body movement, spins, and difficult combinations.
Now, you are a level for challenge. Be
expected to sweat. Come prepared to focus and learn
quicker footwork and unusual, complicated
Must be either high intermediate level or Inter/Adv.
You will be taught choreography, how to perform
using facial expression, body confidence and
presence for stage. Most who take this class always
by the end of the series leave upgrading their
dancing ability to a much higher level.
