In New York-style salsa dancing, the break steps occur on the second and sixth beats, not on the first and fifth like most dances. Because of that, dancers refer to the style as "On2". Few know the unorthodox style of stepping better than the instructors at Salsa Fever On2 Dance Academy. Led by founder Mario B, they schedule classes for students of all experience levels, even those with two left feet or more than two left feet. Their beginner classes introduce inexperienced dancers to the fundamentals of spinning, twirling, shining, timing, and musicality, while advanced classes do the same but at a more frenzied pace.
