It is important for all the participants and Marchant & Davina that everyone is working at a similar level. Each bootcamp is designed and taught at a pace and level specific to the ability.
We have a thorough and comprehensive syllabus which systematically covers our techniques with progression through each level of bootcamp. If you are new to our style, you may miss important elements of our techniques if you attend a higher level bootcamp. Please bear this in mind when selecting a bootcamp. We generally recommend starting at the Bronze bootcamp where you will learn the Alchemy Core Syllabus and techniques.
NOTE ON TIMING...
If you are new to dancing salsa On2, have limited experience, or are not yet confident dancing On2 you should attend the BRONZE & Transition to On2 Bootcamp. It is expected on the Silver bootcamp that everyone's timing is good/excellent.
Consider that the bootcamp is for a whole weekend in a small group. You will get maximum progression and development from selecting the right one for you.
We do not use the usual level labels (e.g. Improver/ Intermediate/ Advanced) to describe the bootcamps as we feel this can be misleading given that dance 'levels' are highly subjective. Our bootcamps work in line with the Alchemy syllabus, methods and techniques, and we recommend working through the system.
Please read the description of each bootcamp and consider carefully which would be best for you. It is difficult to describe in words dance ability/level, but we have put together a rough guideline of the level of dancer suitable for each bootcamp. If you are unsure, please do not hesitate to contact us with some information about your dance experience so we can best advise you.
The style of salsa taught on all bootcamps is cross-body On2. These bootcamps are not suitable for anyone who has only learnt a different style of salsa (eg cuban, columbian).
