What Oye?

This is a 2 month course for those who have Basic training in the Salsa dance form or equivalent amount of social dancing. The first month involves turn patterns with leading and following of higher difficulty and skills with more emphasis on technique. The main concept of this course is to introduce you to the Cross Body Turns, on how to lead and follow it with detailed breakdown to achieve precision. This level also introduces to you to the Copa and some simple SHINES (foot movements) which help with the rhythm of Salsa music. This level includes a special introduction to MUSICALITY giving you detailed understanding of terms like beats, bars, rhythm, tempo and the structure of salsa music. After a month long exposure to different terms and techniques of partnering, footwork and shines you will have a good understanding of the structure of Salsa and Salsa Music.

In the second month focus in on practice. This level fine tunes the entire syllabus of the first month by repeating it again. You will realize as one does this course again a sense of ease in footwork is achieved. The main concept of this course is to reinforce good leading and following by teaching you how to be light on your feet. As one is already aware of the syllabus in the second month, it becomes relatively easier to focus on timing and technique to ensure proper and smoother execution of turn patterns. After 2 months of reinforced training in techniques of partnering and footwork, you will be able to hit the social floor with much needed confidence.

Who Oye?

The Dance Factory is a holistic Centre for Dance in Mumbai which provides Quality training, high-end dance apparel as well as strong career options. It was founded by Mr. Vineet Bangera & Ms. Sahiba Sawhney. Mr. Vineet is an engineer by qualification but a dancer by passion. It has been 11 years since he first started dancing and has dabbled in various forms such as ballroom, jazz, hip-hop, ballet and contemporary but would like to call himself a Salsa addict! He believes that learning the right technique is imperative to becoming better dancers. Ms. Sahiba has formal training in fashion designing and started dancing when she was 9 years old and has learnt folk, a few urban dances like hip-hop, jazz and various partner dance forms, but it was salsa which swept her.Vineet and Sahiba are well supported by other trainers in Dance factory -Mr. Prince, Ms. Shailja, Mr. Vijesh and Ms. Chetna. The Dance Factory has separate faculties for each dance form ensuring all instructors are masters of their respective genres. The founding duo themselves are heading the Latin department with over a decade of dancing and teaching Salsa together
