i2i Musical interpretation salsa course at bar Salsa Soho!
Musical interpretation in salsa is a wide field. The aim is to interact with the music so that the dance finds a greater meaning.
In short if you interact with the music you'll feel better and have more fun! It's your best friend when you work with it and your worst enemy if you choose to ignore it.
There will be loads of salsa moves and combos to try but each exercise will highlight a point about the music.
So here's a brief outline of what's covered:
The course covers:
Salsa Timing how to get it and keep it.
Salsa Music the never ending debate - Historical time line
Salsa club sub genres (bachata, merengue, cumbia, son, etc...)
The instruments of a typical salsa band and their rhythmic contribution
The Salsa Rapido framework for musical interpretation ( how to use the music)
This course wont be a bunch of Dos and Dont's, Interpretation is a personal decision and this course helps you to make it.
As ever this i2i Flavours course start with the essential Salsa Rapido Framework which makes this course a direct follow on from the 1-Day Intensive.

After months in the wilderness of Camden Market we're back at the venue formerly known as The Cuban and now called Gabeto. It's a new clean shiny bar in the same building and the decor's more London and less Havana.
Join Moe, DeLarry and Me for a bunch of classes and fun
Some of the classes will be in Gabeto bar and some in Gabeto Studio AKA Alchemy but come to the bar first.
NEW START TIME OF 7.30pm we will be starting on time with or without you so please check in early.
New Pricing: £10 per evening. We'll be introducing a Cafe Nero style loyalty card.
I'd like to thank everyone for their support over this summer and welcome everyone back to get this night buzzing.
