Fri 20th Dec - No classes. Starting back in January 2014
Unfortuantely you have just missed our last beginners course for 2013. We run the intensive beginners class about once every 6 weeks to show you all the basics and get you prepared for our Improvers Class. We feel this is a much better approach than a long slow beginners course lasting 8 or 10 weeks. We will be back with another in 2014 but if you are still interested in learning salsa from the very basics, get in touch as we can point you towards a class that may suit or we also do private lessons which would prepare you for the Improvers class which runs every Friday at 7pm.

If you're never danced salsa before and you want to give it a try, then our Beginners Intensive Course is perfect for you. There's no need to make a commitment to a long term course, simply come along on one of our Friday night courses and learn to dance in one evening. If you like it, you can then progress to the Improvers class that runs every Friday night after that.
Classes are taught by David Hynes and Suzanne Coates, giving you all the basics of the music and the dance and letting you get enough confidence in one night to get up on the dancefloor and strut your stuff. Salsa is all about having fun and meeting new people. We aim to provide a friendly relaxed atmosphere whilst maintaining a very high level of teaching, to make sure your time spent with us is worthwhile. We are frequently told "but I can't dance" or "I have two left feet" .... well then you're perfect for our courses. No-one in the classes has danced salsa before so everyone is starting at the same level, so there is no need to feel shy or be worried about looking out of place.
Salsa is a partner dance so we start with the basic steps, imagine Patrick Swayze teaching the Mambo step in Dirty Dancing, then we get you partnered up and we move quickly through the basics to give you extra moves, turns and styling. By the end of the class, you should have a good understanding of the salsa music and how to combine the footwork and moves with the music. Salsa is danced to an 8 beat rhythm, so everything is based on a 1, 2, 3 (pause) 5, 6, 7 (pause) count and we can guarantee you'll go to bed dreaming about this count as you'll hear it throughout the class. You should be able to head out to the Empire or one of the other salsa nights in Belfast and know what to do. You might not be brilliant after one night but at least you'll know what it's all about.
Cost is £20 per person or £30 if coming along as a couple. We're more than happy to welcome 2 ladies as a couple as long as one dances as a leader and one as a follower.
We also offer a discount to students (since we are very close to Queens University). You can register and book online through our website booking page.
Since the last course has just finished, please follow us by signing up to the mailing list or Liking our Facebook page and we will provide you with all the latest information about classes and events around Belfast.
These courses are intended to teach you the basics of salsa in one session. View our page with all the details of our Beginners Courses.
Every Friday at 7pm, these classes are the next step up from the Beginners Course. We will continue to focus on the fundamentals and increase your styling and ability to lead and follow, increasing your confidence on the dancefloor and taking you to the next level with your dancing.
Every week, we choose a topic and focus on that particular move or technique. We explain the best way of leading and following that move and give tips and tricks to make sure that you are able to dance that move with ease on the dancefloor, especially with peope who didn't do the class. Never again will you say "but I don't know that move" when you're dancing.
These classes run at 8pm every Friday. They are intended for the higher level dancers, explaining how to incorporate more styling, footwork, body movement and musicality into your dancing. If you really want to push yourself on the dancefloor then this is the class for you.
We use a great selection of solid danceable tracks, full of lively instruments and musical breaks, to explain the musicality side of salsa. We teach how and when you should dance in partnership and when is a good time to break away and do shines, if you want to that is.
Friday 13th Dec - Christmas Social Dance. No classes. Dancing from 7-9pm
Sat 7th Dec - Salsa-NI Christmas Ball at the Waterfront Hall
