Teacher Training

Your training will be led by a Havana Salsa Senior Specialist – one of Havana Salsa’s best Salsa teachers. Every “Senior Specialist” has been handpicked by Rodolfo – the (creator and founder of the Havana Salsa programme) for their extensive dance experience.

Our Senior Specialists go through a comprehensive training process, and have the tools to prepare you to kill your classes with confidence.

Learn how to teach the basic steps to both lead and follow, and learn how to teach the basic steps in other Latin rhythms for warmup purposes, such as merengue, reggaeton and bachata.

Using the Havana Salsa formula, you will learn how to hold and teach your very own class, what to teach week on week, and how to teach it.

You will get access to professional resources, experience, and techniques to help you teach confidently, build rapports with your students, and deliver (in some cases) life changing skills.

You will also receive practical one on one training with a Senior Specialist for your first classes with real students.

“Teacher Training Day” courses carry a minor fee of £60 +VAT payable on the day of training.
