Movement and Style for EveryBODY

Add some flavour and style to your salsa dancing! In this session, we will break down and unpack fundamental body mechanics, and work on isolations and accents to add playfulness, style and musicality. We will also add some footwork patterns that you can mix in with your usual salsa steps or bust out when you're freestyling on the dance floor. Intermediate Cuban salsa experience recommended; open to all genders.

We really think everyone deserves to be able to take our classes, so they are all offered with with subsidies available or on a sliding scale:

-Subsidies at community centres are available through the Leisure Access Program. If you need additional support email info@masmovement or call Aidan at: 604.353.7976

-Sliding scale means that people who can afford to pay more help subsidize classes for people who can't afford to pay as much. It is a way of creating accessibility in a very unequal society where poorer people have less access to valuable services such as dance classes. "Market rate" is approximately $10 per hour of instruction.
