Take Your Salsa Music Enjoyment to a Whole New Level: Learn to Dance the Dance with the Pros: Tuesday and Thursday Evenings (8:00 – 10:30 p.m.)

June 16, 2010 at 12:43 am Leave a comment

At this point, I have posted many a salsa dance party around town, most of  which offer a single lesson on the spot to get you up and dancing  for the evening. That’s all well and good, of course, if you just want a quick intro to the dance … but what if you really and truly want to learn how to dance a “mean” salsa or at least a “semi-mean” one anyway. In that case, you need to get into a good salsa class and get down to some serious business on a regular basis. Well, you can do just that with the folks at the Masacote School, conveniently located in Harvard Square. Unlike most other social dance schools, this outfit specializes in salsa specifically- a huge plus right there!  And talk about learning from the pros, the school is directly associated with Masacote Entertainment, an internationally renowned Latin dance company and jazz ensemble with an epithet that reads “Bridging the gap between music and dance”. I couldn’t agree with their philosophy more. You want your dancing to be enhancement to your listening pleasure, not a distraction!

The expert staff at Masacote base their dance instruction upon a strict adherence to basic technique with a heavy emphasis on fundamental skills right from lesson one. They know from many years of experience that this the way to ensure that their students progress as rapidly as possible. Classes are designed for all ages and no partner is necessary. They offer their students group, private, or even customized instruction plans, as well as coaching sessions. You can even opt to learn in the comfort and convenience of your own home via their self-instructive DVDs. If you happen to have any salsa dance experience at all, then come on in for a free evaluation session and the staff will place you in the appropriate class according to your skill level. The Masacote School offers a wide range of salsa classes designed to fit every student’s needs from the total novice to the well advanced including: Intro to Salsa, Beginner Salsa, Advanced Beginner Salsa, Intermediate Salsa, Advanced Salsa, Ladies’ Salsa Styling, Musicality & Fundamentals, and Movement Classes. Take your pick! As I say, there’s something here for everyone. New classes start each and every month so there’s no need to wait. Sign up now as sessions fill-up quickly. Go ahead and read the rave reviews and convincing testimonials!


See where a little practice will get ya? Yes, these are real students and their teachers!!!
