Which level is for me?

Choosing the right level is very important. Being in a class where you are not challenged enough won’t help you to move forward, but being in a class where the level is too high can discourage and stress you. If you have previous experience dancing Cuban salsa, please contact us so we can help you to choose the right level for you.

Enjoy your dancing journey

Becoming a great dancer doesn’t happen overnight, it takes time and practise! Trying to rush through the levels or attending a class above your ability won’t make you a better dancer.

Like in life, the magic is in the journey.
Embrace it, have fun and enjoy every step along the way!

So you have some time to spare in the evenings and the prospective of learning to turn like a pro salsa dancer is enticing. You look up dance classes near you, but how do you decide through the options in front of you. This review should hopefully help! I was exactly in the same shoes few months ago. When I saw Afrodesia salsa I wanted to meet the teachers before making my mind up. Jerry & Esther invited me to see them before one of their regular classes on an evening. They were very friendly and approachable in taking me through what to expect and what would be a good class for me to join. It’s been 7 weeks into my beginner’s classes on Thursdays, and we had our first social just this Sunday. I felt quite confident improvising and practicing the dance moves learnt so far and had a lot of fun dancing with other fellow students from all levels. Jerry & Esther invite questions during their sessions, and breakdown every step they teach to the T. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the lessons are delivered at a good pace with plenty of opportunity every week to recap and practice. I’ve been to salsa classes in Scotland before, and when I moved to Reading it felt this was the natural thing to do while trying to make friends too! The students in my batch are quite friendly and are always smiling through their pain even if the steps are a bit too complex to master. In this shared comradery we enjoy our Thursday evenings completely aloof from our daily stress. I would go as far as to say that the classes are quite therapeutic and fun! But above all, in my opinion, the best feature about Afrodesia salsa is that Jerry & Esther are genuinely lovely people, super kind and humble, and patient with their students - characteristics which I feel are not easy to find in dance teachers. I feel what they have created at Afrodesia salsa is a place where anyone, regardless of their age or dance prowess (we literally have students ranging between 20’s and 60’s) can learn and enjoy the art of Cuban salsa.

Hello, I think one of the most important things about having the classes with Jerry&Esther is that they do not overload with tones of information and too many of steps to teach and practise . They go straight to the point on each one and they really simplify the processes so it makes it easier to learn. All the above goes along with having a lot of fun and the nice vibe and atmosphere in the classes. I do really recommend Afrodesia salsa as the place to get into Salsa dancing, not just because of the above but also because Cuban salsa is the one they taught, the original one!! I would like also to highlight how they are always willing to listen and answer questions at any time, this is very helpful and very much appreciated. Thank you Afrodesia salsa, Jerry&Esther, for your work for us and making us enjoy that much each and every class. Looking forward to having the next one! BR, Ricardo

Highly recommend Jerry and Esther who teach interesting and varied weekly classes with multiple levels to suit all abilities! Really friendly and fun atmosphere. I joined in 2019 and only left in 2024 due to relocating, I will certainly miss my Monday Cuban salsa fix with Afrodesia! Can’t recommend the classes enough 😊

The instructors are a great double act. They are relaxed whilst being effective teachers. The salsa dancing is such fun, but always challenging each week when you add another move. Best of all is the friendship of the other students.
