About Salsa Group Classes

Salsa is the perfect way to dip your feet into the world of Latin Dance. In this class, you can expect to learn beginner Salsa steps and spins in a high-energy environment. You'll also meet new dance friends as we rotate partners during the class. After 45 minutes of instruction, we provide practice time so you can solidify what you just learned. All couples and single dancers are welcome. Plus, we’re BYOB!

In our 4-week progressive classes, we start by learning the basics: how to loosen our hips and move our feet to the rhythm of bongos and congas. Then each week, we expand on our movement vocabulary with turns and "tricks." By the end of 4 weeks, you’ll be able to dance at any of the several Salsa nights Chicago has to offer. The session ends with a free Friends & Family Showcase on the last Friday of the month. This is the perfect time to teach your loved ones some Salsa shimmies and shakes and show off what you’ve learned!

Our drop-in classes are similar to our progressive classes, but are more for those looking to try out Salsa dancing. Dancers of all skill levels can expect to learn something new. We cover a number of steps and spins, culminating in a fun pattern that you can take to your next Salsa night!

Each class is one hour-long (45 minutes of instruction + 15 minutes of practice time).
