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 every class!

What is my Salsa level?

We’re offering 3 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!


You never danced cuban salsa before or attented only a few classes and need to refresh your basics step? This will be the perfect class for you. You will learn our basic step Guapea as well as dile que no, two of the most crucial steps for dancing.
This level is repeated every week and is always for free; you can do it as often as you need!


You managed the first level and are ready to move forward?
Or you have danced cuban salsa before but don’t remember what the difference between enchufala doble and enchufala ocho is?
Then it’s time to start with the Improvers 1 level.
You will learn different moves that will get you ready for the next salsa party.
Since you only need to know Guapea and Dile que no, you can start this level any week.
After 6 weeks the content repeats itself, so that you can refresh your memory on the moves you have learned so far.


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 only need the knowledge of the Absolute Beginners and Improvers 1 level. After 10 weeks the content is repeated to give you the opportunity of training the moves some more and work on the details.

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.
