About the lesson
First and foremost, salsa is all about fun! In order to have the most fun on the dance floor, you must learn technique.
I teach both leads and followers, 1 on 1, couples or small groups.
Lessons can be done in 1 - 2 hour slots.
My lessons are structured to make a complete beginner who knows nothing, to be able to become a confident social dancer. And to improve technique for already experienced dancers as well as learning new combination.
A typical structure of a lesson is learning footwork at the start for a warm up, then we go into partner work.
First we shall focus on musicality and timing, without this technique will be used wrong!
Then we shall learn the core techniques of salsa.
We shall concentrate on technique and all the never ending combinations that follow on from techniques from beginners plus many many more!
Please note everyone's levels of what counts as beginners / improvers / intermediate / advance vary's. My levels are based on what techniques you know.
My name is Tyler and I love teaching and love dancing salsa. I originally was never good at dancing and never trained in any dance before I found salsa. I love salsa because even without amazing flare or extravagant moves, if the lead is doing everything on time then the follower looks good, which in turn makes the lead look good! That's beauty of a partner dance!
I am a teacher for Super Mario (salsa4fun) who has trained me himself. I teach 100's of students every month, with new beginners every week!
I have seen a lot of complete beginners grow and still growing into the future salsero's ands salsera's on the social dance scene. I want to create more dancers and spread the joy of social dancing!
I also teach for Queer Salsa Ldn. Which is aiming to create more queer social dance spaces to get everyone involved! So no matter your gender, learn to lead or follow.
Firstly, Tyler is a great teacher. He made me feel comfortable as he is so friendly and has a lot of positivity. His instructions are clear and the he explains why we do things such as lead on certain numbers shows he has a great understanding of the dance. Highly recommended!
Tyler is a superb teacher - he imparts his passion, technique and confidence from him to you with ease. Clearly very knowledgeable with a natural ability to teach. He makes me want to learn and become as great a dancer as he is. He has an amazing style, he is patient and understanding. Highly recommend him.
Tyler is a great teacher, he breaks down moves really clearly, has the lightest touch as a lead and a charming personality on top of that.
He is extremely vocal and really supportive, the best salsa teacher I have ever had
After having been part of a few of Tyler’s sessions, I would recommend him to anyone with an interest in salsa without hesitation. Going into salsa I was a complete beginner with two left feet, however after only a few sessions I have gained a lot of confidence in my technique and have achieved a much better understanding of the theory and musicality behind salsa. Tyler teaches with great positive energy, clear instructions and patience, he has definitely helped me to improve in every aspect of salsa.
Was invited to a salsa class by a friend to help with confidence. Tyler was welcoming, patient, professional, and best of all has the cure for two left feet. Couldn't ask for a better Teacher / Salsa experience!
Fantastic instructor. Top class, to summarise Tyler accurately.
Tyler is and amazing teacher ! His technique is amazing and I enjoyed so much his class , his way to explain how to lead and follow makes my life much easier .
I understood the movement and the right thing to do while dancing , plus he brings joy in the class , so much fun .
Tyler is undoubtebly the best salsa teacher I've ever had! His technical ability is crazy, and his vibes are always up! His classes are fun, and he's always able to clearly break down the steps, even if it takes me a while to make my feet work the way his does. 10/10 teacher, if you want to learn salsa quickly and have fun, I highly recommend his classes
Tyler is a great salsa teacher, he's friendly takes time to make sure you understand what he's teaching. He's confident shows throughout the lesson and has good communication skills.
Tyler is very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable. I was a complete beginner when I tried his class and he was able to teach me from the ground up in a way that didn't leave me feeling embarrassed from my initial lack of coordination or experience.
10/10 can't recommend him highly enough for anyone wanting to learn!
Tyler is an excellent teacher. I was a little apprehensive at first as I've never done salsa however Tyler is very friendly and was patient giving clear instructions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or an avid sala dancer.
I have taken a class with Tyler out at Bar Salsa Soho on a busy Monday night. I’ve done a few salsa lessons before but he was the only one I have been to that teaches beginners technique so well and so clear as he explained why we do things.
In private class he concentrates even more so on important small details. I feel like I learn so much each lesson yet it’s still fun and goes so quickly. Couldn’t recommend enough!
Tyler is a very friendly person to begin with and takes a very patient approach to teaching salsa. He has an amazing understand of the theory of salsa as well as the music, which he clearly relays throughout his lessons. An amazing teacher and I’d recommended 100x times over
Tyler is a excellent teacher, his positive energy and technical ability is a class above the rest.
He's very friendly also, so if you're struggling with something don't be afraid to ask for help
A Top instructor who breaks the lesson down superbly into an easy to follow format.
Tyler is a great teacher. He is very positive and made me feel comfortable. Very clear when explaining steps and why we do things which made it easier for me to learn. I would highly recommend him as a teacher!
Looking to get into salsa?! Then look no further!
I would 110% Recommend Tyler to get you started in salsa or to hone in your skills.
I met Tyler at a bar in central/west London. Little did I know, I attended a salsa night. I had never done salsa before and to be honest, wasn't planning to at all as I had 0 skills and was quite shy.
Tyler noticed me watching the crowd and encouraged me to get involved. Then went a step further and went out of his way to teach me a few basics moves and stances.
Honestly couldnt recommended a better tutor, super friendly, knows what hes doing and best of all extremely patient. I was all over the place in the beginning. Definitely a 5* tutor!
See you at the next lesson Tyler!
