Established in the year 2000, the Energetic Salsa Program has been in ongoing development and growth for the last 21 years. This makes it the Corner Stone of the Energetic Soul Dance Program. It is based on solo footwork drills and patterns as well as a combination of several rhythms and their corresponding dances. These elements comprise all the fundamental building blocks for soUl°sa, our partner dancing program, and the next step in the Energetic Soul Dance Program progression. Energetic Salsa gives students a fundamental understanding of solo dancing as well as linear and circular partner Salsa dancing. It is the beginning of Dance Adapt-Ability.
soUl°sa is an unlocking system designed for Adapt-Ability on and off the dance floor. It is the foundation of how ES trains and develops programs. it is a mindset, a way to "no thought on the dance floor". A training tool for wellness. the art of partner conversations. soUl°sa constantly strives for adapt-ability on and off the dance floor. the combination of soul and salsa, which stands for dancing from your heart. our way to do this is by training. The system covers overall movement, timing and focuses on music and dances within the Cuban style genre.
soUlºsa was developed by Duane Wrenn in 2001. Originally the soUlºsa focus was to find a way to bridge the gap between Linear and Circular Styles of Salsa Dancing. As this program continues to evolve, soUlºsa has become a partner style of dancing that is inspired by Cuban Rhythms and dances, and stands by the theme of adaptability on the dance floor. The soUlºsa program structure is based on five principals: Work to understand music, timing & rhythm, self, objective of the dance, and how to connect and converse with your partner on the dance floor.
