Cali Style Salsa at La Topa Tolondra

Me and a teacher of Arrebato Caleño, Andrés Molina, gave a class of Cali style salsa in La Topa Tolondra, on the 4th of December 2017. The aim of the class was to teach the basic hip movement of Cali style salsa and some of its fundamental steps. Here you go with a very short video, including a Miguel Ferrerossa and some social dance from the place which can no doubt be called my favorite salsa club in the world.

At the end of a class we did a small improvisation, which came as a complete surprise to me. Maybe not the most relaxed dance of all times, yet here it is for those of you who always ask me to show more dancing!

P.S. And here’s a little Saturday salsa playlist for those of you who need some inspiration! Feel free to suggest more songs, especially salsa songs from Cali! I know many of them, yet have no idea about their names…
