Description

Come along and make new friends learning to dance one of the most fun, social hobbies you can do. It’s not about two people doing the same thing as the same time. It’s a language. Once you know it you can dance with anyone around the World. 

Partner dancing really grounds you in the moment and allows you to become present. It’s both grounding and uplifting at the same time. Whoever is leading (ladies are more than welcome to lead here) needs to learn how to speak / lead clearly. Followers (traditionally Women but Men can learn this as well) on the other hand need to learn how to listen and let go of predicting what will happen. It’s all about letting go which is harder than it sounds. Once you do though… it’s a truly incredible experience. We guarantee you’ll love it or your money back. 

Important: The beginner Course is technically 10 weeks but we split it into two parts. Booking this course means you will do 5 weeks of either Los Angeles Style Salsa or Cuban Style Salsa. It doesn’t matter which one you do first as the first week just covers the basics of LA style and basics of Cuban style. No need to really understand those details. Just know you need to do both 5 week courses back-to-back to be able to progress to Level 2 Salsa.

You need to complete both level 1 (beginner) courses before moving up to level 2 or have experience with another school. The moves above are all mandatory to know to start the level 2 courses. 

What to bring? Imagine you’re going to the gym. Bring water, comfy shoes, comfy clothes (presume you will get hot), a small towel is always a great idea too. Also, snacks help. Especially if you know you’re tired after work. Sweets or a banana always help as well.

If you have time, a shower and a quick brush of the teeth are always welcome for social dancing. Some people bring spare shirts if they know they sweat a lot which is always a great idea. Most social dancers bring a spare shirt. And we always provide deodorant and chewing gum at the door. Please indulge!
