Salsa is one of the most popular social dances in the world. Combining multiple cultural influences, from Cuban, African, Puerto Rican, American, and more, this style of dance will get your blood pumping!
The group classes that we offer typically focus on the most popular salsa style in Pittsburgh:  Salsa On 1, which is also referred to as L.A. style salsa. We also offer Casino Rueda, a circular style of salsa!

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we are slowly reopening our physical school location. For the month of July & August, most of our classes will be solo classes (no partners). We will be adding Partner classes, but ALL STUDENTS MUST BRING THEIR OWN Partners! We will also be hosting live zoom instruction of many of our classes. Click HERE for our live Zoom classes!

Limited registrations are being allowed, to maintain distancing and safety.
You must pre-register for this class below or here:

Mondays: (normally starts at the beginning of the month)
7:00pm: Solo Salsa 1: Basics
8:00pm: Solo Salsa 2: Shines & Body Movement

Saturdays: (normally starts in the middle of the month)
7:00pm: Partner Salsa 2
8:00pm: Partner Salsa 1

Solo Salsa 1: Basics:
This course will cover the foundations of salsa (basic techniques, body movement, and the starting of shines). For all levels of dancers that want to get back to the roots of salsa!

Solo Salsa 2: Shines & Body Movement:
This course will cover footwork and body work movement through short shines combinations. For experienced-beginner dancers and up!

Starting when things start to go back to normal, we will offer four levels of Salsa, and a mixed level of Casino Rueda!

All of our classes require the skills taught in the previous classes, as well as the previous levels.
Example: Salsa 2 requires that a dancer knows everything taught in the four classes of Salsa 1.

The first class of each series starts with a basic review of the material from the previous level.
Example: The first class of Salsa 3 consists of a review of the material covered in Salsa 2.

Each week we briefly review the material of the previous week, then move onto new material, and finally incorporate the new with the old in a combination for partnerwork and/or footwork.
