Salsa Dance Classes and Social Dancing in Belfast

Nu Salsa is run by David Hynes and has been established since 2004, promoting salsa dancing mainly in Belfast but also throughout Northern Ireland. We have travelled far and wide to learn from some of the best teachers in the business and our aim is to provide a place for dancers to learn, practice and enjoy salsa as much as we do. This is accomplished through regular classes and monthly salsa parties in Belfast and occasional guest teacher slots at congresses in Ireland, the UK and Europe.


Salsa Dance Parties in Belfast On Saturday Nights

We are very pleased to have an established venue for our monthly salsa nights at the Ivanhoe Hotel on the Saintfield Road in Belfast. We have been running events here since 2011. It has a superb dancefloor, great atmosphere, lovely food and drink (plus ice cream), plenty of car parking and is easily accessible from Belfast City Centre.

Our next event takes place on Saturday 15th June 2019 when we will be joined by DJ Gwyneth from Oxford. For all our details on salsa dancing in Belfast, check out this page
