From this class, you could specialize in any type of salsa dancing, if you wanted to go more in depth, or you can use what you have learned to dance salsa when you have the chance.
This is a progressive class starting at the beginning, getting you comfortable dancing with a partner. Each of the first five weeks introduces a new concept, with the last week practice and review. You can still take this class even if you are going to miss some weeks, because we review everything that you learn previously each week. There is a lot of repetition and practice time, so you get to experience dancing.

This class is also suitable for people who have already taken this class as well as those with some experience that want a refresher on their salsa basics and for anyone that wants to join us for some fun.
