Come as you want.

Join us anytime!

No fix starting dates.

No registration!

Come and dance. That’s it.

No partner? No problem!
Our teaching style enables each and every one of our students to practice, even if we don’t have a perfect balance between leaders and followers. You will often change partners during class. In our opinion this is the only way to properly learn a partner dance, because you have to learn how to cope with loads of different personal dance styles.
Oh and like this you also get to know a lot of new people in every class!

What is my Salsa level?

We’re offering 4 levels of Cuban salsa classes, if you are unsure which one is the best for you, here are some explanations.
Once your skills allow it, we highly encourage you to do 2 levels at the same time: solid basics make confident dancers!
We linked some example videos in the Headlines for you. Check them out!

You’ve never danced Cuban salsa before or attented only a few classes and need to refresh your basic step? This will be the perfect class for you. You will learn our basic step, “Guapea”.
This level is repeated every week and is always for free; you can do it as often as you need!

You feel comfortable with “Guapea”?
Then join Beginners 2, where you will further build on your basics by learning “Dile que No” and “Dame”. This class is designed to be taken directly after Absolute Beginners, even if it’s your first time in our classes.

You are comfortable with “Guapea” and “Dile que no” and are ready to move forward? Or you have danced salsa before but don’t remember the difference between “Enchufala doble” and “Enchufala ocho”? Then start with the Improvers 1 level. You will learn different moves that will get you ready for the next salsa party. You can start this level any week. This content repeats itself every 6 weeks.


You have learned all the moves from the Improvers 1 level? Moves like “Sombrero” and “Exhibela” don’t scare you and you want to learn more? In the Improvers 2 level you will learn new moves such as “Setenta” or “Coca-Cola” as well as some fancy variations. You can join this level in any week and need the knowledge of all previous levels.


Our classes are designed in a way that allows you to join us anytime. There is no fixed starting date that you could miss. Never danced before? Perfect! We take you through the very basics and give you the possibility to progress at your own speed. Our classes are open to anyone: this is an open space for all people of different heritages, cultures, colours, genders, sexual orientations, religion, ages …


We are all volunteers. The teachers, organisers, helpers, designers and even filmmakers who participate and help out – we’re all doing this without asking for money. All profit is given to Welthungerhilfe who fights for equal access to safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene in over 40 countries world wide. Funds raised by us support projects in Malawi. More info HERE.


Do you like our project? Do you have ideas how to improve it? Would you like to be part of it? Would you like to support us in whatever way (we’re always looking for sponsors and rooms)? Do you have a particular skill that you would like to share 4Water? It could be anything from acting, cooking, yoga … The possibilities are endless! Anyways, just contact us 🙂

Our thoughts on dance

This one is easy. It all comes down to one motivation: FUN! Whether fun means to you spending time with nice people, interpreting a song by moving your body to it, pulling off wicked moves, progressing in your dance, impressing others, impressing yourself, … this list is endless. Important is, that you’re having fun while dancing. This is our basic philosophy which we base all our teaching on. We don’t tell you to wear heels for salsa dancing and we don’t tell you not to wear them. We don’t tell you to use one certain version of “dance styling”, we just show you a version that you may adapt, or not. We think there should be no judgement in dance because as long as the dancers are having fun, they’re doing it right – wether they do it in a fancy suit or in sweatpants doesn’t matter.
