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!

Solo Salsa Techniques
Beginners to Intermediate
This all level class (open to beginning, intermediate, and advanced students) is designed to refine your dancing wherever you are in your dance journey. You will sharpen your basic, basic foot patterns, body movement, spins, body isolations, and hand styling (both for men and women) to have you shine and feeling smooth on the dance floor!

Partner Salsa 1  (No partner needed)
Beginner to Experienced-Beginner Salsa
This beginner course goes over the foundations of salsa.

Partner Salsa 2  (No partner needed)
This experienced-beginner course builds on the foundations of salsa, from footwork to partnerwork.

Partner Salsa 2.5 (No partner needed)
Experienced Beginner-Intermediate Salsa
Connecting the techniques and movements from beginner courses, this course focuses on improving solo and partnerwork to make social dancing more enjoyable.

Partner Club Salsa 3 (No partner needed)
Intermediate Salsa
Bridging the gap between technique and application, this course focuses on providing reinforcement and improving intermediate to advanced partnerwork in the context of social dancing. Larger musical practice breaks will be provided.

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.

COVID-19 UPDATE: For partner classes, students do NOT need to bring their own partner, but we are unable to guarantee that students coming to class solo will have someone to dance with. See the full details on our current policy here.

We have created a Facebook group for Los Sabrosos students to connect with each other and find other students to partner with. Click here to be taken to the group.
