Our Fall Season Salsa classes (2017):
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.

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!!!!!!!!!!!
Teaching Salsa since 1999
