Our Levels

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.

Limited spaces

Our aim is to create a relaxed atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and learns at their own pace. All our courses are structured and progressive, covering a syllabus of steps each week. To provide a good learning experience, all groups are closed (drop-ins not allowed) so students can learn and progress throughout the course without interruptions of new people joining in. Having closed groups also means getting to know each other and feeling more at ease!

We do our best to keep a balance of leaders and followers, for that reason in some cases may be a waiting list to join the course. Our recommendation is to contact us as soon as possible.

Important, please note that:

All courses need to be booked (paid) in advance.
Courses are non-refundable and non-transferable (to another person, course or event).
