5 Tips to a Great Salsa Dance in Singapore

Dance Classes Singapore: How to be a Great Salsa Dancer

Salsa Classes Singapore - 5 Tips to Dancing Greatness

If you are looking for exciting dance classes in Singapore, try Salsa dance!  It's probably the most fun and popular Latin dance Singapore has enjoyed in the last 10 years, and from the beginner Salsa classes to the performance Salsa classes and Salsa dance certifications, Actfa Dance School Singapore offers a wide variety of solutions for your adventure in the Singapore Salsa dance scene.  In fact, many top dancers and teachers in the Singapore Salsa dance scene were trained from this Salsa school.  Here's how they did it, and here's how you can do it too:

1) Take Your Salsa Basic and Intermediate Dance Class Seriously

Learn the proper lead and follow techniques in Actfa's beginner Salsa classes in Singapore.  A dancer without proper Salsa dance technique cannot execute advance moves with flair.  Actfa's Beginner Salsa Syllabus has 50 pointers which is covered in a minimum of 5 dance classes.

Our intermediate Salsa classes in Singapore consists of 20 Salsa dance techniques that are the building blocks to master those advance moves we love to see on the Singapore Salsa dance floor.  Each Salsa class covers 1 Salsa dance technique and some of its variations that students can learn and master.

As teachers, we encourage our students to repeat their Salsa classes until they master each Salsa dance technique and its variations.  Mastery of the move is when the dancer can lead or follow the technique 90% of the time, even with weaker Salsa students who are new to that Salsa dance technique.

After all, "Technique is how you remove the body's obstructions to the heart's expression."

2) The 3S: Salsa Shines, Salsa Styling and Salcaa to add Spice to your Salsa Dance

Shines, Styling and Salcaa are vital to achieving a great Salsa dance in Singapore.  Learning to lead and follow equips the Salsa dancer to dance; learning to shine, style and spin elevates the dancer to the level of looking good while executing those Salsa dance moves!  

Ladies Shines Dance Classes Singapore with Actfa

Actfa provides Salcaa dance classes for Salsa dancers looking to improve their fundamental body movements and spins. Salcaa is essential to every Salsa dancer, new or experienced. It aims to push a dancer's body to new limits, allowing the dancer to achieve sharper and larger body movements, spin more confidently and become more flexible. The new found body control is fundamental to every dance, including Salsa dance, and is immensely helpful when a dancer decides to advance in their dancing.

Salsa Styling and Shines teaches real-time application of body movements, hand styling, fancy footwork into the Salsa social dancing.  It is great for beginner Salsa dancers who are new to body movement techniques, and also useful for advanced Salsa dancers who want to improve their style.  Actfa Dance School Singapore offers weekly Salsa Styling classes and Shines performance classes for beginner Salsa and advanced dancers alike to improve their body movements and showmanship.

3) Salsa Practica:  When You've Learned the Salsa Dance Moves but They Don't Work

Have you taken all the Salsa classes Singapore has but still can't nail those Salsa dance moves on the floor? Do you have problems on the Salsa dance floor but can't figure out what's wrong? Have you wanted to dance like those super cool Salsa dancers you see but don't know how to get there?

Private 1-1 Salsa classes are the way to correct those trouble spots and fast!  But if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, try Salsa Practica.  Practica is like a short private Salsa class session where your problem areas are identified and solutions are put forth to rectify the errors.  This is great for people who want specialized coaching.

4) Singapore Salsa Dance Certification: The Structured Way to Progress

Actfa, in collaboration with AC Dance, provides social level certification as a pathway for students to chart their progress.  Students taking Actfa's Salsa classes in Singapore can choose to complete their Salsa Dance examination up to 10 levels in the social category and 10 more in the professional category.  Beginner Salsa dancers can take as The AC Dance Salsa examination syllabus consists of fundamental techniques, variations, spins, styling, shines that are used extensively in the Singapore Salsa dance arena and around the world.  Students are encouraged to clear their certification up to level 5 for a comprehensive understanding of Salsa dance of the beginner to intermediate category, and up to level 10 for a more in-depth understanding of Salsa as a Latin dance in Singapore and worldwide.

5) A Quick Way to Improving your Salsa Dance: Performance

Last but not the least, performance training is a great shortcut to honing your Salsa dancing skills, as you are taught a sequence of steps and then drilled to execute them precisely and beautifully.  Actfa's Salsa performance dance classes in Singapore performs at it's school recital every 6 months and also at various events in Singapore.  We have beginner Salsa performance classes to advanced Latin dance classes.
