The expert instructors at Salsa Fever On2 Dance Academy lead students of all skill and experience levels through a schedule of high-energy, New York–style salsa classes aimed at teaching a comprehensive repertoire of steps and burning calories. During each two-hour dance session, the staff’s pedagogues guide rug cutters through a carefully structured curriculum catered to levels such as pre-beginner or intermediate and taught in an environment as non-intimidating as a candlelit bouncy castle. During class, instructors dish out individual attention while they count out steps in sets of four-beat measures, calling pupils to change dancing momentum on the second and sixth beat of each song—the reason “On2” is shorthand for New York–style salsa. Aspiring Astaires can practice for future onstage moments by honing specific skills such as timing, musicality, and body movement. Salsa steppers can also show off moves during Salsa Fever’s frequent practice parties or dance socials, where students chat with new friends through rhythmic stomps in Morse code.
Salsa Fever On2 Dance Academy
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.
