"Spins are difficult!"
If you feel this way, then you're in the right place!
Spins are one of the most difficult things to master yet also one of the most common elements in salsa. When we feel more comfortable with spins, the dance becomes more enjoyable and it's easier for us to progress. This course will make the complicated easy to understand and help you accomplish your dance goals!
The BEST part: Learn from the comfort of your home for a fraction of the cost of attending a festival workshop!
This course is for you if:
- You just started, know your basics and are learning spins & turns.
- You are an intermediate/advanced dancer who would like to deepen your understanding.
- You learned techniques that just don't work for you and want something that makes sense.
- You want the comfort of learning at your own pace instead of the rushed pace of a congress workshop.
- You don't want to spend the time and money on traveling to congresses just to attend a packed class.
- You want the freedom to train from anywhere, anytime.
- You want to be able to ask and have your questions answered as you go through the course.
- You want quality detailed instruction from one of the best instructors in the industry.
Our Goal For This Course:
Develop a solid understanding of how to control our bodies through the preparation all the way to the end of a clean and complete spin. The control and awareness that you will develop through this course can be applied to all aspects of your dancing. Not only will you improve your spins but by applying these concepts, all of your movements in your dancing will be cleaner and more precise.
"Magna doesn't only touch on the outer layer of each topic but she goes much deeper in details. She also encourages all of her students to practice and discover how they can improve on their own with the information she taught."
- Joan C.
Over this 4 week course, I will walk you step-by-step through the fundamental elements of spins:
- Body Positioning
- Generating & Controlling Momentum
- Stopping on a Dime
Each week you will receive a set of instructional videos that will build upon the material from the previous week. In this way, you will have time to practice and master each week's material before moving on.
With the Live Coaching, at the end of each week, we will have a 30 min group Q&A where I will address any issues or questions that you might have. If you would like individual attention, please contact me to find out about Live Private Coaching
For us to truly feel comfortable with spins, we need to understand them from the inside out. This course will help you get to that level of understanding and comfort through paced learning where you will:
- receive manageable chunks of instruction
- have time to practice and process that information
- have time to ask questions
- be able to really master each week's material before moving on
How To Make The Most Of This Course
This course is designed to not overwhelm you with information and to help you establish the building blocks for more advanced spins in the future. To make the most of this course:
- Review the week's instruction
- Spend 10-15 minutes every day to practicing that week's material with the aim of clear and precise execution
- Take note of what's easy or difficult to make your next practice session more effective.
- Ask questions during the Live Coaching sessions.
If you dedicate quality practice time, spins will eventually become second nature to you. Once you have that level of comfort and confidence, we can start to explore variations and more advanced combinations.
