Discover the joy of salsa dancing with James, our experienced instructor with 15 years of teaching Cuban Salsa! No matter your dance background, James understands the nerves of beginners, having started his salsa journey in his 40s.

Join our 4-week salsa dance course where you'll master the fundamental footwork and rhythms of Cuban Salsa. From dancing in hold to transitioning to the open position ("Casino"), you'll learn inside and outside turns as both a lead or a follow. It's not just about learning moves; we'll guide you on effective leading and following for a seamless social dance experience.

Our classes are conducted in "La Rueda," (The Wheel) creating a friendly and inclusive environment for everyone to learn and make new friends. The atmosphere is relaxed and low-pressure, with plenty of breaks for you to enjoy the learning process. Cap off each session by practicing to music in a social setting, reinforcing what you've learned.

By the end of the 4 weeks, you'll feel confident stepping onto the dance floor at the Kizamba gig, ready to dance away to the vibrant beats of Latin tunes. Embrace the rhythm, meet like-minded individuals, and embark on a journey of fun and connection through salsa dancing!
