FIND THE RHYTHM - THE DANCERS' GUIDE TO SALSA MUSIC BY ALEX WILSON & SALSA LEE

FIND THE RHYTHM, THE DANCERS' GUIDE TO SALSA MUSIC is an exciting CD/Workbook by acclaimed UK salsa/Latin jazz musician Alex Wilson (creator of salsa hits "Show Me", "Ain't Nobody" & "Antonio") and leading salsa instructor/dancer Salsa Lee.

 

Dubbed "The Dancers' Bible" by salsa master Robert Charlemagne, the guide brings dancers get closer to the music they love.


Find the Rhythm is a practical, step by step guide to salsa music, breaking down the structure of salsa songs, salsa instrument rhythms and much more. It comes with a massive CD, packed with musical examples, helping dancers train their ears and feet to the complex, compelling rhythms of salsa music.

 

Find the Rhythm allows dancers to sharpen their timing, making it easier to find the 1 (or any other beat!), explore and interpret the colour and texture of salsa and express themselves more fully on the dance floor. Simply, it is all about having more fun and fulfilment on the dance floor.

Find the Rhythm - The Dancers' Guide to Salsa Music is recommended as essential reading for all dancers by UKA Dance, the leading dance awarding body and dance teacher training organisation.
