Beginning 1st Degree White Belt Salsa

After a Wednesday night social...

"It was such a blast! The dancer, men and women, were just excellent. The leaders were very skillful, and easy to follow. They know many combinations of moves, and execute them without hesitation. You are obviously fabulous instructors! Everyone was so gracious, and everyone danced with everyone, so there was no one sitting on the sidelines. And the puppy is precious. I am thrilled to have found you! Thank you, and I will see you soon!!"

Mid Class practice!

Performance Team


All of our classes run in 4 week sessions and are based on both a Martial Arts belt system and the world renowned World Mastery curriculum.  Each session consists of 1 class weekly, for an hour and half, for 4 weeks.  We focus on intensive technique, lead and follow, musicality, turns and spins, partner work and patterns within each belt level that includes the material covered in that session as well as in prior sessions.   Each belt concentrates on a family of steps and patterns and the focus during that belt level training is on that particular family of steps and patterns creating more retention and continuity in your dancing. No partner necessary.


Due to the level of technique covered in each class, our classes are progressive and build on what was taught the prior week and session. In order to ensure that all of our students are moving forward  and due to the detailed technique that students receive in our classes, we do not allow walk in classes.  All students must register for a complete session. No 'drop in' classes are allowed.


All of our students, no matter what their level of dance prior to training with BCP are required to start from our level 1 / 1st Degree White Belt Salsa (or the level 1 of whichever dance you are studying).   In order to move to the next level, your BCP instructor must evaluate your skills at the end of each class session to determine whether you are ready to move to the next belt level or repeat the same belt level again. At some point, most students are asked to repeat a level during their training in order to solidify what you are working on.  This will only benefit you in the long run and it is our hope that our students would see this as an opportunity to strengthen that particular family of steps and patterns, making you a stronger dancer overall.   With our focus on technique and repetition, we are able to train solid, well rounded dancers that feel ready and excited to move to the next level.


Should you need to miss a class, we highly recommend doing a private lesson before your next group class so that you do not miss out on the detailed instruction covered in the missed class.  It is the responsibility of each student to make up what you missed before the next class as we are not able to offer make up classes.  We do not offer refunds or or 'credits' toward the next session if you miss a class.  All class sessions must be paid for before the session begins and no refunds or credits for missed classes will be offered so, please  make sure that you are able to attend the entire session or are able to schedule a private lesson to cover material missed.




Group Classes

6:30 - 8:00pm

This class is for the brand new dancer with little or no class experience or for the dancer who wants to revisit the foundations of Salsa!  If you have always wanted to learn Salsa, then THIS IS THE CLASS FOR YOU!!  We will focus on the fundamentals of Salsa, basic steps, basic lead and follow technique, dance floor etiquette, dance positions and more!  Even if you have had classes in the past but want to brush up on the basics this class will definitely benefit you!!  We start from SQUARE ONE and use a WORLD CLASS CURRICULUM that is UNMATCHED to create solid dancers that have their own style and charisma on the dance floor!!

Orlando Salsa Congress!


"I love Cassandra's classes in so many ways that I'm sure I'll leave something out, but here are the reasons that come to mind immediately:

1) My husband and I spent several hundred dollars on a "Ballroom introductory package" at an unnamed Charlotte  studio in 2009. The instructors were good, but the environment was so formal that it was hard to actually enjoy myself, and I quickly lost interest for that reason. NOT so with Cassandra and her classes. She keeps it casual, fun, and she has seemingly endless patience with those of us who are struggling with new steps.
 
2) Confession: I'm not a fan of exercise (especially cardio), but I love her classes. Who knew exercise and fun could occur simultaneously?! I'm not a ZX Fitness member, but if I ever decide to join a gym, it'll be ZX. The staff is great and they treat us wonderfully, regardless of our membership status.

3) I've met some truly wonderful people because of her classes.

3) Even my 17-year old daughter has developed an interest in Latin ballroom dancing since meeting Cassandra, and the classes are affordable enough that we can actually go on a regular basis. Admission- $5 per person; Wardrobe- $? (just dress comfortably); Quality time with your loved ones? Priceless.
