Piel Canela Dance School
Founded in 2001, Piel Canela teaches a variety of dance forms from Hip Hop to Flamenco. They also have an incredible dance company & offer a variety of dance-oriented events from fundraisers to dance cruises (yes, dance cruises - sounds awesome, no?). They specialize in Latin dance making them an ideal place to take your first Salsa lesson and have plenty of dates and times to choose from so scheduling certainly won’t be an excuse to not achieve your Salsa dreams. In Colombian Salsa Level 1, one of their most popular classes, you’ll learn what’s called “Cali Style” Salsa, stemming from Cali, Colombia. Cali Style is a foot-focused style of Salsa complete with shuffling, swiveling, kicking, and speedy rotations. While certainly very flashy compared to some of its Salsa cousins, Cali style is a perfectly approachable dance style for total beginners, though thanks to its uniqueness, will also offer some new perspective and tricks for those Salsa dancers who are used to the more traditional On-1 or On-2 Salsa styles.
