 about Streetbeat Salsa

My name is Alastair Sadler and with my wife Felicity we founded the Streetbeat Salsa Co. in 1995. Our aim was simple. We wanted to pass on the skills we had acquired to an ever growing number of people wanting to learn to dance. We also wanted to promote salsa for the sake of it.
I feel that salsa is a living dance, in that it is constantly evolving. There's no such thing as the authentic salsa. As soon as people believe that, salsa becomes just another folk dance of a bygone era waiting for a new fad to knock it off its pedestal.

We first got hooked when we saw it at the Notting Hill Carnival. It was stylish and sexy, but it didn't conjure up the negative images that other popular dances sometimes do.

We felt privileged to learn in London because the teachers were committed and skilful, but also they varied greatly in style.

We cannot say that we are particularly influenced by Cuban, Colombian or New York styles. It's more fun to mix them all, plus add a load of other stuff from our UK background.

 the Salsa Rapido method

Salsa Rapido is a branded teaching method developed by Alastair Sadler of The Streetbeat Salsa Co.
The method is based on simple premises:
The faster people can get to club competence the most likely they are to be retained in salsa.
Teach techniques common to all regional styles of salsa so dancers can dance with anyone from anywhere.
Avoid bad habits and misconceptions that will limit a student at a later stage.
Promote standards of attitude that reflect the best social values.
