We run a variety of classes and workshops throughout the entire year aimed at students with varied levels of experience. Whether you’re entirely new to latin dancing or you’re an advanced salsero, bachatero, tanguero or kizombero – we’ve got something for you!
Check out the calendar below to see what we’ve got coming up soon! Detailed descriptions of all classes and workshops can be found below.
Salsa is a very dynamic and fast-paced dance style that is practiced both solo and with a partner. In our salsa classes you’ll learn partner work, styling, shines, footwork – and more!
First time salsa dancer? Our beginner class is for you! You’ll get to learn all the basics of salsa dancing thanks to some time working on technique individually at the start and using the rest of the class to practice what you’ve learnt and work on connection while partnered with your classmates!
If you’ve got the basics of salsa down and you want to start to learn how to add some more flair to your dancing, our salsa intermediate 1 class is for you. You’ll have the chance to learn how to lead/follow more elaborate moves to impress your friends at socials 😉 **In order to take this class you are expected to know basic steps, cross-body lead, and basic turns**
Salsa Intermediate 2
Our salsa intermediate 2 is aimed at our more experienced students to push them to fine-tune their technique and learn more complicated, fast-paced moves.
Originating in the Dominican Republic, bachata is a close-contact partner dance. Bachata is danced to a music with a four-count, and is characterized by hip-movement and body rolls.
Bachata beginner class is perfect for anyone who has no experience in the style, or who needs a refresher into the basics. You’ll learn the steps, basic turns and foundational body movement to set up more advanced body rolls and techniques.
Join bachata intermediate after at least one term in the beginners class. Classes will be more fast-paced and the patterns more dynamic.
Our Tango classes are focused specifically on Argentine tango and its different variations. Tango involves a close and mindful contact with your dance partner, as there are no “basic steps”! Our tango community has been thriving the past year, and we are excited to offer two levels of the style this year!
Our tango beginner classes aim at building a strong foundation for both leading and following. You will learn how to communicate clearly with your partner during dance and how to lead some of the foundational patterns in tango.
Tango intermediate is aimed at students who have already taken a beginners class previously. While we’ll always return to the basics, the intermediate classes aim at expanding your tango-toolkit and enhancing your technique.
Kizomba is a partner dance from Angola that is known for its close connection and grounded flow. Our Kizomba course begins with an introduction to fundamentals and later transitions into Urban Kiz. This will allow students to dance in socials everywhere, as the two styles are often mixed. We offer a 1.5h class where all levels are welcome!
In this class you will get familiar with Kizomba as a dance style and form a strong foundation to kickstart your Kizomba journey! You will gain technical understanding of both lead and follow roles, with an emphasis on genuine human connection.
