On 1 Training Team

UPDATE New series starts January 12, 2016 at Trilliant Studios in Oakland . Register online below!


Our On 1 Training Team is a place that has been a proven success for learning the principles of salsa dancing, partnering technique, styling, footwork, spinning and turn patterns. The program provides a dancer with intense rehearsals, yet offers them a supportive atmosphere to facilitate faster progress. We are committed to bringing out the best in you as a dancer by sharing our love of salsa/mambo dancing.

This program is recommended for high-level beginner/intermediate dancers, although there is no audition required to join the On 1 Training Team. The team was established to allow dancers to be a part of a group "in training." 

Members of the On 1 Training Team are expected to attend practice regularly. The program lasts three months at the end of which members receive the option to have a formal assessment of their dancing skills. This assessment will also serve as an audition for those dancers who wish to progress to the On 2 Training Team of the Salsamania Dance Company.


Member Testimonials

"I remember in On 1 struggling with the idea of turns. I could not seem to spot or avoid falling over to save my life. In my second season, though, I started doing the drills we learned in class and, to my great surprise, they worked. I began spotting and my wobbling all over the dance floor was greatly reduced."  (Liz K.)

"The On 1 class taught me the basics I needed in order to understand salsa dancing. John and Liz gave me the tools I needed to be able to dance socially, to dance with a team and to compete with a partner."  (Neena D.)

"The On 1 class was by far the best beginner's class that I've taken. I was able to meet really motivated dancers of all skills which helped me improve fast. I'd recommend the On 1 class to any person wanting to learn salsa in a heartbeat." (Lusa L.)
