Since the year 2000, Extremos Salsa has been a leading player in the Amsterdam Salsa & Bachata Scene.
Not only have we taught ten-thousands of people like you their first dance moves, but we are also the proud organizers of the world-renown Amsterdam International Salsa Festival and the Amsterdam International Bachata Festival. Both festivals attract people from all over the world.
Our instructors are motivated and very capable of teaching you how to dance or improve upon dancing so you can become the best version of yourself on the dance floor.
Salsa 1: Absolute Beginners
In our basic levels, you’ll learn the fundamentals of partner dancing, the lead & follow technique and the proper dancing etiquete. These courses are progressive, meaning that each week we build on the elements which were taught the week before. If you have no prior experience with Latin dancing, it’s best to start at the beginning of a new course. Alternatively, if the courses already have started, you can join one of our Beginner Bootcamps on Sunday, where we will teach you the fundamentals. After taking part in one of the bootcamps, you should be able to jump in to a running course.
Salsa 2: Improvers
In our second level we go further in the lead & follow techniques, you’ll learn new basic turns and more footwork. This is not the right level if you don’t know your basics yet, even if you are talented or have been on a vacation to a latin country and danced a lot with the locals
It’s best to start this class from the beginning, so check above when and where the next Improvers courses start.
Salsa 3: Intermediate
Everything you have learned in the basic courses is now combined into longer and more complicated turn patterns. There will also be more emphasis on styling, especially for the ladies.
Salsa 4: Semi Advanced
In our Semi Advanced level, you are expected to have a good overall lead & follow technique, know your basic turns and are comfortable on the dance floor. We will also start with Spin Techniques.
Salsa 5: Advanced
The difference between our Semi Advanced and Advanced is mostly the level of the participants, as the turn patterns are not necessarily more complicated. Ladies, however, MUST know how to spin!
