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!
