OUR SALSA COURSES ARE EXPANDING – Introducing Salsa Level 3.1 & 3.2 

Many of you have asked for higher level courses, so here they are! We are introducing Level 3.1, which will launch in January, and Level 3.2, starting February. Initially, these will be held on Tuesdays at 9pm, with Saturdays to follow in the near future.


In order to align all our classes, we are changing the structure of our rates and packages in the studio. Moving forward, drop-in classes will be AED 65 and the 12/24 hour packages will be available across all drop-in classes (The only exception will be Pole Fitness). This means the cost of Salsa, Bachata and Zumba classes will be increased, while all other classes will remain the same price.

On top of this, we are also introducing a membership/loyalty system, whereby any members will receive discounts across our group packages, courses, private classes and select retail products. Many of you will qualify as members already and your membership cards will be waiting for you to pick up from the reception next time you drop by!


Did you MISS the Talk Salsa Nights? Because we sure did! And after a long break, we are back! We are officially re-opening the doors to our Weekly Friday Salsa Night. Introducing SOUL SALSA NIGHTS, every Friday from 10pm – 2am, with DJ Gabriel at the decks!
We are very excited to be there again, so bring your friends along and let’s party like we used to!


Alex will be holding monthly salsa ladies styling workshop starting January. For you ladies who’ve been wanting to polish up on your styling skills, don’t miss this opportunity. You’ll learn technique, body movement, flow, timing and more, to help you become a salsa diva on the dance floor.

The first workshop will take place on Saturday, 16th January, from 2-3.30PM. Make sure to register! Dates for future workshops will then be announced each month.
