To do a salsa shine is to dance independently for a portion of time during a partnered Salsa dance. The leader will let go of the follow’s hands and both people must them do a salsa solo. Many people find it difficult to improvise and create dynamic beautiful shines on the spot, which is why we are taking the guess work out of the process! Join Shauna for eight weeks and learn pre-choreographed Salsa shines! Our new and improved Salsa Shines syllabus will make it easy for you to come week after week and learn several different shines will will be stuck in your permanent memory! After completion of this course, both leaders and followers will be ready to shine with confidence at any time! Professional Salsa performer Shauna will help you with spins, hand movement and overall grace as an added benefit!

If you sometimes feel as if you are unsure what to do with your arms or get nervous social dancing when it comes to doing a shine, this class will help you be more comfortable on the dance floor. Great for Latin dancers of all types – Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, and Cha Cha! Make YOUR dancing unique!
This class is also beneficial to anyone who needs help with Latin body movement, such as hip rolls and shoulder rolls. Students will also learn arm styling and then apply what they have learned to choreography. Turns are also very important, so some of the class will be dedicated to learning traveling turns, turns in place, as well as inside and outside turns. Classes will start with an upbeat, fun warm up in the beginning, followed by stretching and body movement techniques. This will be followed by turn instructions and reviews, plus choreography.
Students may bring dance shoes or feel free to just wear socks.
