Dotty-Dorottya Ujszaszi / Contemporary & Salsa

Dotty2Fun, flow, freedom! CONSLA is a purely inspirational way of dancing salsa. Created from the words CONtact, CONtemporary and SALSA, CONSLA mixes movements from these dance styles.

Created by Dorottya Ujszaszi, worldwide renowned contemporary and salsa dancer CONSLA is a completely new style of dancing where you’re freed from the usual salsa steps, figures or shines. CONSLA uses body contacts, the weight of your partner and incorporates two more directions to your dance: the floor you’re dancing on and the air you or your partner reach to. The result is a new dance style that is seamlessly integrated with your salsa dancing and your own moves – creating a constant flow and enjoyment – for you two.
