FOR WOMEN ONE OF THE GREAT ADVANTAGES IS THAT THEY DON'T NECESSARILY NEED COMPANY TO TAKE A SALSA CLASS OR TO GO OUT DANCING. MANY OF OUR FEMALE STUDENTS COME ALONE AND DON'T FEEL INTIMIDATED. SALSA IS ONE OF THE NEWEST AND MOST HAPPENING DANCE AND THE BEST THING IS THAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY DANCE WITH ANOTHER PERSON. THE LADIES NO LONGER HAVE TO DANCE AROUND THEIR HAND BAGS AND THE MEN DON'T HAVE TO PROP UP THE BAR! No partner needed to have a fun time ONCE YOU TAKE UP SALSA OVER A SHORT PERIOD, WITH REGULAR DANCING YOU WILL BE SURPRISED AT THE AMOUNT OF WEIGHT THAT CAN BE LOST AND HOW MUCH YOUR STAMINA INCREASES. THE BEST THING ABOUT IT IS THAT WHILE YOU ARE LEARNING OR DANCING AFTER A CLASS YOU ARE HAVING SO MUCH FUN THAT YOU FORGET THAT YOU ARE ACTUALLY EXERCISING!

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 your dancing.

Women:  Again wear what is comfortable, but if you are going to dance Salsa a long tight straight skirt might spoil your evening.

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.

BEGINNERS ALWAYS WELCOME & NO NEED TO BOOK.

3. What type of person does Salsa?
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 take lessons?
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 classes?
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 dancing.

There is always a chance to practice afterwards.

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.

ALL AGES and LEVELS OF FITNESS CAN become SALSA FIT!!

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 parties?

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!
