What shoes should
I wear to Salsa Lessons?
Avoid trainers or
shoes which grip the ground
too much - they make it hard for you to move.
Avoid backless sandals as they tend to fall
off as you
Shoes with too high or too narrow a heel may
make your feet ache, prevent you moving easily
and make it harder to dance. (a one and a half
inch heel is ideal)
As you progress, if you find you are
dancing regularly, buying a pair of shoes for
dancing is well worth it. You can buy shoes
quite cheaply and they will look after your
feet and make it much easier to dance.
DO NOT WEAR STILETTO OR KITTEN HEELS - as
these concentrate all your weight into a very
small area, so if you tread on someone, you
could really hurt them. They are also very
hard to dance in and can damage dance floors,
especially if they are metal-tipped. Here is a
great shoe store, its called

Salsa as exercise
We are the first to set the trend! Salsa is
replacing the gymnasiums! Why? Its a lot more
fun getting a great workout socializing and
having a blast vs. working out alone at a
gymnasium. Salsa dancing not only feels good, but it also
improves your physical strength, endurance,
flexibility and coordination. You can
get a real high from dancing, and in the
stressful world we live in this natural high
is a GOOD THING. Salsa also provides
good aerobic exercise with less strain on the
joints than higher impact activities - e.g.
jogging. You exercise aerobically when
you feel a mild level of exertion - i.e. feel
warm, start sweating, feel your heart and
pulse rates up - but not such that you can't
carry on a conversation. Most averagely
fit people achieve this when dancing salsa.
Aerobic exercise should be indulged in for at
least 20 minutes, 2-3 times a week.
Our Salsa Bootcamps will help you burn 1500
Do I need a
Absolutely not! We rotate
partners in class, and everyone will have ample
partners. If we have an imbalance, extra people
just wait in between couples, and will get a
partner in a couple of minutes (we switch
partners quite a bit during class). We also do
our best to have even classes but it can be a
challenge at times with so many people signing
bringing someone, do I have to rotate
Rotating partners is not
solely for social reasons. It helps the learning
process. It's necessary to properly learn how to
lead and follow. Everyone has a different style,
and changing partners will greatly enhance the
speed at which you learn. That being said, you
can always remove yourself slightly from the
circle and not change partners - no problem!
Is this a
singles class? Are there many singles
No, this is not a "singles"
class, but there are a lot of singles people
salsa lessons. There are also many
couples as well. It's a very casual and
supportive atmosphere where everyone is having
fun and learning how to dance. These classes
have a mixture of people from all social walks
of life! From Doctors, Lawyers, waiters,
waitresses, models, maids, you name it, everyone
will be there having a GREAT TIME! We are all
equal when it comes to having FUN!
Can I bring
a group of people?
you're nervous about taking a class simply
invite your friends. They'll have a great time
and you'll be able to practice together. On
certain classes, please pre-register due to the
room capacity. We also have group
What if I
sign up for a session of classes and have to
miss a class?
No problem! You can
swap classes at any time, and make up classes
during the week, for any other class. Once you
sign up for a session, and miss a class, you may
attend a make up class by informing the teacher.
COMMUNICATION WITH THE INSTRUCTOR IS KEY! If you cannot make any other class in that week,
then you would lose a class (although we do go
out of our way to make sure people are well
taken care of). The pre-registration classes for
the Bootcamp Salsa programs are prepaid and you
can join in on the next Bootcamp if you miss it,
and do not communicate, the money is non-refundable due to
the costs that are involved.
else I need to know about classes or how to
prepare, what to bring?
yourself, bring water, your friends, and the
desire to learn and have fun. You'll have a
great time! Always prepare for dance classes by
practicing good hygiene! What that means is,
please shower before coming to class - and wear
deodorant and antiperspirant. Ladies - perfume,
men - a touch of cologne. These little
thoughtful touches go a long way. Nobody forget
to bring your breath mints!
three big tips for a Beginner dancer trying to
learn the fastest way
First, count out loud!
Just like in class - take every opportunity to
count and grasp the rhythm. Second, perhaps find
a partner to practice with them (you should
still rotate partners in class, but outside of
class, you can practice with someone)
Benefits: Meet tons of people! Far more
than you could in any other medium. Ask anyone
who has tried it. The social benefits, for both
men and women, are second to none.It will aid
you in life: in way's you can't possibly imagine
before trying it. You become better at work,
more fulfilled, and far more
self confident! You'll carry yourself in an
entirely different way.
Connection with other
people, community: For many, Salsa
Dancing will get you in touch with a fantastic,
diverse and fun group of people, and it allows
you to form a connection with another person
(while dancing) that is rare in today's society.
It's called partner dancing for a reason, and
there is nothing quite like having a dance, with
someone you've just met (or you've known for
years), which allows you to share such happiness
and joy. Being one with the music!
More fun than you've ever
had: That's quite a lofty benefit, but
for many, they find that Salsa Dancing is just
the element that has been missing from their
lives. No single type of dance is for everyone,
but Salsa is a lot of fun.There are so many
other reasons. Hopefully we've provided enough
reasons to at least have you take the first

Classes that you serve?
Last but not least-
BRING A GREAT ATTITUDE!
This is key!

Do I really need
I recommend everyone start
with at least one Salsa Bootcamp session! Yes, you heard
that right, do not take a privates to start
dancing. Take a Salsa Bootcamp first, and start
learning some of the basics and the
fundamentals. That way, you'll get far more out
of your private lessons. Don't substitute
privates for group classes! They work best
together rather than individually. You'll want
to take your first private within your first 2
months of dancing (before bad habits have a
chance to develop).
I have been told to take Private Salsa Lessons
FIRST!! What do I do?
If you have never danced Salsa
and the instructor is asking you to take
private lessons, RUN! You will spend too much
money on something that you can quickly learn
at one of our Salsa Bootcamps! We want you to
Learn Salsa and definately recommend privates
at a later date. It will be less expensive for
you once you have the Salsa basics down vs.

Tips for Beginners
Here are a few things
to remember before you actually set off for
your first lesson.
Wear comfortable shoes
to the Salsa Class, as
feet can get sore after dancing for a few
hours. Avoid trainers that grip the floor too
much and make it hard for you to move. Do not
wear slip-on shoes or stilleto heels as they
are hard to dance in and can damage dance
Wear loose, comfortable casual
clothing at the Salsa Class. If women wear skirts make
sure they are not below the calf as they can
get caught on the heels of shoes when dancing.
Layers are good, because as you get warm, you
can take clothes off. Salsa dancing is very
good exercise - you will be surprised on how
warm it gets and how many calories you end up
You do not need to come with a
partner to the Salsa Class, even though we want you to
tell everyone! We have a rotation of partners, it is an
extremely social dance, you'll love it.
Everyone has a great time at the Salsa Class.
At the Salsa Class, It may seem obvious but in salsa
you are close to each other so you MUST
REMEMBER, personal hygiene.
Always wear deodorant and make sure that you
have fresh breath. If you do tend to sweat a
lot then it may be advisable to take a long a
flannel which you can use to wipe sweat from
your face during your class and even a change
of top. You will find that as you do more
salsa classes your fitness levels will
increase and you will probably start to sweat
less. It is important to be considerate to
others at the Salsa Class.
