The Groovin' Foot Workshop

Hello EV’RYONE!!! RastaSalsa here!!!

The Groovin’ Foot Workshop is a fun, salsa footwork workshop taught by Tom “El RastaSalsa.” Although footwork is usually done individually, it is a very important piece to strengthen a dancer’s timing, rhythm, balance, and coordination – all of which are important skills to have when dancing partnerwork.

In this workshop, I introduce individual moves along with their names and break them down. Then we modify and combine the moves in creative ways to create a short pattern that is practiced in the workshop. Finally and most importantly, I give tips on how to be able to create your own footwork sequence, with your own flavor, and your own style!!!
