Don't judge us by this simple website ;-) We would rather spend our time and energy teaching our students rather than spending time beautifying our website! :)
Our Winter-Spring Season Salsa classes (2018):

Our goal for our students to be the ‘best’ possible lead/follower as they can be, as cliché as it may sound, it is our goal!!! What does this mean??? For leaders – smooth, gentle and clear leads. For followers – following with style and control.

Not sure which class fits you? Take the Salsa 1c if you have never taken classes with us before and we'll take it from there!!
It is extremely important that an email is sent to us to register, at email@example.com. A minimum of 8 people is required to hold this class, else the class will be postponed at a later date or cancelled. Our teachers need to know by a certain time if we have enough students registered. Thank you
SALSA for Beginners - Why are we offering it at a generous rate? Because a lot of people would like to take up dancing but unsure if they will like it, most do not want to invest paying a minimum regular fee of $70 or more only to find out that they don't want to continue. Unfortunately, no refund will be given for missed classes as this is heavily discounted. ;-( But we are extremely confident that you will enjoy our class, our teaching method and of course this fabulous dance!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)))) But please, do give yourself a 5 week chance whether you like Salsa dancing or not (wink!) that's why we are offering this affordable course for beginners!!!!!!!!!!!
