I took the Salsa II class (Intro to Back Break Moves), after taking Salsa I at a different studio. I took just one class at Salsa N Seattle.
While I didn't expect a complete review of each concept studied in Salsa I, I would have appreciated at the bare minimum a refresher on the basic moves that were to be used in the class. Not only did this make me feel like I was stumbling along to remember these moves, but the pace at which new moves were introduced was rapid. Before I felt like I got a solid grasp of a new technique, another one was thrown into the mix.
The group size didn't help things either. At the start of the class, we were asked to give a show of hands if it was our first Salsa II class (about three people raised their hands). While it would have impossible to individually coach each person, I was surprised that the instructors didn't at least check in and see if I was grasping anything they were teaching.
While I know now that I should have brushed up a bit on my Salsa, the combination of the class speed, group size, and lack of attentiveness from the instructors contributed to an overall negative experience of my first class at Salsa N Seattle.
