1. What do I wear?
Men: The most important thing is that you
are comfortable. A smart T-shirt or cotton
shirt is usually fine. If you are feeling
quite confident you might decide to sport a
trendy vest. Smart Jeans or trousers are
usually fine for the bottom half.
Comfortable shoes should be worn but avoid
trainers or heavy shoes as they can impede
Women: Again wear what is comfortable,
but if you are going to dance Salsa a long
tight straight skirt might spoil your
Footwear should be comfortable and might be
needed to protect your feet from the
occupational hazard of kicks and scrapes.
Avoid wearing court shoes or sandals.
2. Do I
need a partner?
Although you might find your ideal dance
partner at a Salsa class or club, you don't
need one to start off with. The great thing
about Salsa is that you can go to Salsa
classes on your own.
WELCOME & NO NEED TO BOOK.
3. What type of person
The fact is that almost anyone can try Salsa
if they have a love of the music and the
dance. At our classes, people from many
walks of life and age ranges. We currently
have a gentleman, who comes along, who is an
amazing 81 years old!
4. How often will I need to
It depends on your confidence and your
personal ability. You should probably take
lessons twice a week when starting so that
you can get a firm grounding in those all
important basic steps and techniques
5. What is special about your
At the Salsa classes the emphasis is on
friendliness and fun. Of course we also
emphasise the need for good technique and
the need to listen to the music when
always a chance to practice
Salsa dancing is a
great way to relax and energise yourself at
the same time! A typical hours worth of
dancing can burn oodles of Calories. It is a
great stress buster and icebreaker. A good
confidence building activity.

LEVELS OF FITNESS CAN become SALSA
6. How often do
you have parties?
Our fiestas happen every week. They are a
good opportunity for the old and new faces
to come together.
7. How do I remember what I
have been taught?
Remembering what you have been taught is a
matter of practice and experience. At each
class there is always an opportunity to
practice afterwards. The students, who
progress quite quickly, can be found
practising after the classes.
8. What type of
music do you play at your classes and
As we teach "Cuban
salsa" we favour Salsa Cubana. We will play
a few Merengue tracks during the night, to
get the party going. Basically any music
which can be danced to with Salsa or
Merengue steps will always go down well. We
are most happy to play requests - so bring
along your favourite CD to guarantee hearing
it on any night we FIESTA!
