About the Course

The Bronze bootcamp is the foundation for all our other bootcamps, recommended particularly if you are new to the Alchemy style & techniques. This is not a beginners bootcamp. On the Bronze weekend we cover the fundamentals of salsa, focusing on developing good leading/following skills, rotations, balance, control over movement and rhythm.

Having good foundations is crucial to your future dance development. This is a great opportunity to progress your dancing to the next level. Have continuity and progression throughout the whole weekend by studying with the same teachers, in a structured format. Feel safe, comfortable and unintimidated.

The second element to this bootcamp is learning to dance On2. This bootcamp is suitable for experienced On1 dancers wishing to make the transition to On2 and/or gain more experience of dancing On2. A weekend bootcamp is a highly effective way of learning and/or consolidating dancing On2. Marchant & Davina are specialists in this subject, over many years they have helped countless numbers of dancers make the transition from On1 to On2 successfully. This weekend gives you total immersion in On2 day and night! Marchant & Davina approach On2 from many different angles to help everyone catch that groove in the music, work through the Alchemy Core syllabus, learn how to convert your moves, trouble shoot, and give you plenty of practice time.

We will cover a combination of technique and rhythm based subjects to help you develop your dancing and connection with the music. There is no On1 dancing at all over the weekend, so it is a great opportunity for complete immersion in On2 both for class and social dancing.

To get the most out of this weekend, you should have been regularly dancing cross-body salsa On1 for a minimum of 18 months (as a rough guideline). You know the basics - timing, footwork, and partner work. You should know the lead/follow of a right turn, left turn, inside turn & outside turn. You would like to gain more confidence in your dancing, to feel and look competent and confident on the dancefloor. Most importantly you wish to expand your understanding of salsa dancing and music.
