Are you a first time student with Rebecca?

Get a one-time discount for your first group series. Go to the 'Purchase Class' page for more details. You can also sign up in class with check of cash (no change in class so bring exactly $35, please). Please sign up on or before the first week of class.

When should you start?

Please start the first week of a new month series. No later than the second week if you can't make the first week. See the series dates below.

Do I need a partner?

No, we rotate partners! This is HIGHLY recommended to learn to dance with every BODY. If you don't want to rotate, you are asked to stay in the circle and kindly inform each person to go to the next partner. This is full participation within the group. 

Should I learn to Lead or to Follow?

Leading and Following are never gender specific in Rebecca's class curriculum. If you want to learn to partner dance, you will always be encouraged to learn both the lead and the follow. Overall, this makes you a better partner dancer and gain mutual respect for each of the role skill sets and responsibilities. If you are an intermediate follower, begin to lead. If you are an intermediate leader, begin to follow.

  enthusiasm and love around dance, music, and teaching came together seamlessly as a

  thorough knowledge of dance technique and can clearly articulate that knowledge to

SWR Beginning Salsa Level 1
Duration: 4 weeks, 1 hr/week (Berkeley)

$ 51.50 USD

Dance Salsa basics in one hour! I will introduce basic footwork: forward/back/side breaks, forward and back basic, cuban (aka hooks, 5th position, cumbia), and crosses. This is just the beginning, too. Every week you will learn more. This class is four weeks and is progressive which means every week we will review and then introduce new step variations. This is the basis of building  a strong foundation. The repetition builds your confidence and solidifies your technique and timing. Your skills will develop, you will get faster and your transitions will become smoother.  In less than a month, you will be dancing to salsa music with confidence! Smiling, socializing, and exercising? Yes! Who knew burning calories could be so much fun. Let me introduce you to a great way to meet new people in a fun social learning environment while achieving your fitness goals. Leading and following techniques will be covered throughout the series. Partner dancing is learning how to communicate with another person through body movement. I will teach you how to communicate with each other without words. No partner necessary. Bring a pair of dance shoes (preferably with suede soles), socks are acceptable or sneakers with white soles. Basically, you don’t want to stick or grip to the floor because we will turn with quick change of direction. Protect your knees and dance for life. Shoes make a big difference in your experience of learning this high tempo dance. $51.50/series (please join the first week of the class series for the best results)


SWR Intermediate Salsa Level 2
Duration: 4 weeks, 1 hr/week (Berkeley)

$ 51.50 USD


Being an intermediate level dancer is about fine tuning your awareness of your body alignment, your understanding of timing, musicality, and partnering techniques. Level 2 is about challenging your Salsa Basic foundation taught in Level 1 and to begin building the structure of pattern variations. This class is designed to increase your knowledge by introducing new footwork, more partner connection techniques, increase your speed with more transitions and fewer basics. Leaders will gain confidence in their ability to lead and followers will understand the rewards of mastering following techniques. Each role is superbly unique and empowering. To appreciate and respect the partnering roles makes anything possible in this spontaneous social dance! A new pattern will be taught each month and reviewed every week. I will break down the pattern articulating every detail of the movements to the 8-count. As the month progresses, I will teach you variations to the patterns so you understand what is possible and why it is possible. I will encourage you to claim the space for your creativity to flow. Memorizing patterns are simply tools of training. I believe if you understand the concepts behind the patterns, than you have the tools to create your own unique style based on your own body of experience. This allows for fluidity and confidence on the dance floor. Be inspired! This level will move you into the next level dance by encouraging you to listen and feel the music, play with timing and musicality, relate to a variety of dance partners (every one of us is different), and gain confidence as Salseros and Salseras. Vamos a Bailar! $51.50/series (please join the first week of the class series for the best results)
