What we offer in our salsa courses:

We are focused in preparing you to develop your skills at a steady and easy pace. The idea is to slowly build up the techniques by specific fun drills. Overtime you will be able to switch between all the styles while you are dancing on the dance floor.


Level 1 (2-3 months / 8-12 weeks) offered twice a week.

The 3 months curriculum introduces you to the fundamentals of salsa with combinations and patterns that you can start using on the dance floor immediately. These levels are focused on the foundations and mainly focus on understanding the basic steps, basic turn patterns, connection, and music. Students start with a warm-up that teaches the basic steps and simple patterns. You will also learn to get close with your dance partner– no partner is necessary, as everyone rotates in class! While learning the basic step for this dance is easy, this dance is all about connection, control, and attitude! Finally, you will also be exposed to the music, the rhythms and counts for helping you develop strong ear training.


Level 2 (6 months) offered twice a week
Pre-requisite: Beginner Salsa Course

In this level you will be able to develop over the patterns you have learned in the previous courses. Students start with a warm-up that teaches salsa techniques, spins, stops and turns, and ladies hip movement / shoulder movements. More intricate steps, spinning, and specific patterns are the focus in partner-work, where students rotate to dance with each other. Emphasis is placed on smooth body movements and transitions, which characterize this dance. Furthermore, students will be introduced to the individual shines and dynamics of Salsa.


Level 3(4 months) offered twice a week.
Pre-requisite: Salsa Intermediate course/ Demo class with instructor to evaluate level.

As advanced dancers you will be taught complex techniques, modern combinations, tricks and dips, and advanced body movement. Learn how to execute complex figures and patterns. Learn body isolation exercises and drills to help you to incorporate the salsa body movement (afro Cuban / mambo / Pachanga, etc.) needed to make this dance look effortless.
