Beginners Salsa Latin Dance Class at Tuam Street

Beginners Latin @ Tuam Str

We just wanted to thank you for helping us prepare a salsa routine for our wedding, which was already six months ago!

It was a great success and no-one really expected it and was very impressed, especially with Thurstan who really didn't know a lot of salsa beforehand, so lots of credit to you for getting us there!

Thanks again

Course 5 : 27th September - 15th November (Beginner Salsa)

Course 1 : 24th Junuary 2019

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. 

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!

This class is fun, easy, a great way to help your fitness & a fantastic way to meet new friends!! We have regular dance get togethers to help you get more practice and get to know your other dance class mates!
