Let's do Salsa On-2!!

WHAT
This dance style is also known as Mambo, or New York Salsa, but in many countries, including the Philippines, it is more commonly known as Salsa On-2.

This style is danced in an ellipse or a "flat figure 8" on the floor, with the partners facing each other most of the time. Unlike other styles of salsa, On-2 is danced on the second beat of the music ("on 2"), and the follower steps forward on the first measure of the music, not the leader.

Salsa On-2 emphasizes harmony with the percussive instruments in salsa music, such as the congas, timbales, and clave, since many or all of those instruments often mark the second beat in the music.

WHERE
They teach beginners Salsa On-2 in MakatiProtected content

If you want to save time, then you can also meet us 28 Cabildo St, Urdaneta village. You can drive into the village and park on Cabildo St.
The guards will ask for your drivers license which they will return when you drive out.

HOW
The class is open to the public, so you'll be mixing with other beginners and intermediate students.
To balance leaders and followers, the school will mix and match students and instructors together, so this maximises the opportunity to learn.

Also the dance school gives us use of a bathroom, if you need to change your clothing.
For footwear, you can wear shoes with a low heel, or slippers, or just wear your socks.

After the class we'll have dinner together at a restaurant nearby.
