Monday & Thursday beginner classes will give you a great understanding of 2 of the fun dances in Street Latin and you will already have skills you can take out onto the dance floor. We will start with Merengue to get you into the swing of partner dancing with move onto Salsa or Bachata.

From here you can work out which type of dance you would like to focus on, or you can continue on with both styles.

We teach you the beginnings of the awesome dance of Bachata. We dance Bachata with 4 step timing (stepping 1,2,3, tap and 5.6.7. tap), so it is very easy and another fun dance to learn! 

We then move into the beginnings of wonderful Salsa with the 'quick, quick, slow' foot movement. In the beginner classes you learn the basic Linear Salsa footwork, turns & cross body lead - the building blocks of Salsa. 

Once you've mastered the basics of Beginner Salsa you can move on to Level 2 (Improvers Salsa) where you further develop your skills. We will strengthen your leading, timing & following and start developing some great combinations of moves for dancing with partners so you can enjoy the social aspects of dance classes. 

Before you move onto your next level of Salsa dance class, you will learn cross body leads, right turns, left turns plus a few other moves. or you can move onto Bachata Open Level classes!

Check out our Salsa FAQ if you'd like to know more - some of our Social Salsa Dancing Etiquette info is relevant to our early classes as well the more advanced classes. This class is great for all ages!
