Who’s It for?

Anyone. Singles, Couples, Groups. It doesn’t matter. Its a group-focused thing, so you don’t need a partner. It’s entirely up to you whether you come alone, with friends, family, colleagues or a partner. Everyone is in the same boat: learning and dancing together.

I can’t dance, can I really do this?

Two-left feet, No rhythm. We’ve heard it all. In fact, most people who come to us put themselves in this camp. And pretty much all of them learn to dance. So yes, you probably can do this! With the right instruction (from us) and willingness (from you) you will learn to dance salsa.

I’m nervous, will I be ok?

Most people who come to learn are nervous. That’s perfectly normal with something totally new like learning to dance. Most find that once they arrive and start to learn, along with others in the same boat, that the nerves begin to fade. We start with very basics and take the pressure off by giving you lots of practice so that you start to build confidence from the off. Plus, we like to think we’re pretty friendly and welcoming!

I’m a slow learner, will I manage?

Yes. We aim to make sure each and every one of you is having a great time and progressing at a speed that feels comfortable. We understand everyone learns at different rates and retains information differently, and let you decide how far you want to push yourself. Also we’ll give you as much extra individual help as you want or need.

Can I try out just one class first to see if I like it?

Absolutely. Come along to one session and see how you like it. No commitment needed and no pressure.

Will I get plenty of time to practice?

YES. We know memory space gets clogged up with the day to day… work, kids, life etc. so weekly recaps will give you the extra practice and consolidation time to help salsa stick.

Can I come alone?

Absolutely! Because Salsa is a social dance, you do not need a partner. In the classes, you will meet and dance with other people in the group who are in the same boat as you. This means everyone can shake off the nerves together as they learn and develop together. And before you know it, you’ll be friendly and familiar everyone in the group.

I can’t attend all of the sessions, is this an issue?

No, no issue. We do plenty of catch up in each class so if you’re going to miss a week or 2 then we can help you to catch up.

I can’t attend the first night, can I join later?

Yes sure, you can join on the second night if need be as we cover all of the material in this session. Check the location page for joining dates.

Do I need to bring anything?

Yourself! You don’t need to bring anything, there’s a bar at all the venues so you can get yourself a beverage. You can bring dance shoes if you have them. Some people bring a change of t-shirt and a towel (if they are planning to dance a lot. Personal hygiene is very important especially as we are all dancing together). Bring your aftershave and deodorant guys, so you are smelling as fresh as you look :).

What do I wear?

You can wear whatever you like. My only recommendation would be something comfortable, that you can move in. You will get hot when you dance, so layers are a good option. Plus, this is the UK, so you’ll need them for when you go home! Shoes… Men, anything from smart shoes to trainers. Ladies… the same, smart shoes, trainers, if you want to wear heels I would recommend something not too high, and when you’re ready, we can talk dance shoes!

Can I practice after the class?

Definitely, and we encourage it. We have freestyle dancing each night so you can stay, get a drink, have a chat and dance.

Who can come?

Anyone over the age of 18, free of injury.

How much is it?

Its £10 per night, or £50 for the full course (£10 off). If its your first time you can try out the first class for £10 and pay off the balance on your second visit if you wish to pay for the course. You can use your 6 night course pass on any of our nights within the current cycle as you wish. But please note that it’s not transferable to the next cycle.
