Hope Family Church Hall

On2 refers to a particular timing you can dance salsa. All classes at Alchemy Dance Academy are taught On2. Much of what we teach has it's origins in New York salsa which is danced On2. It is also widely known as New York Mambo. 


On1 & On2 are both from the cross-body style salsa family.

This class is specifically designed for experienced On1 dancers who wish to join classes at Alchemy Dance Academy. In this session Alchemy teachers will break down the rhythm/timing, explain why we dance On2, and do some basic steps with you to help you catch the On2 groove. 

If you are of a suitable level, you will then be able to join the Level 3 class in the following hour to continue practicing On2 within shines and partner work. Please note this may be below your dance skill level, as it is necessary to dance more within your comfort zone technically whilst learning a new timing. The Level 4 class is only for dancers who can dance On2 confidently and have a good grasp of the Level 3 On2 shines and partner work syllabus.

This workshop is for people who dance cross-body style salsa. If you have only learned other styles such as Cuban or Cali, you will need to join a beginners course to learn both On2 timing and cross-body techniques. This class is not for beginners, if you are new to salsa or have little experience please join the next beginners course.

Class fees:

£10 - 1 class

£5 - 2nd class on the same evening


For people wishing to attend Basingstoke classes who have prior On1 salsa experience, please email us to arrange an Induction and Intro to On2, or have any questions.
