Our dance company is hired very often on the weekends for out of town events. Therefore it’s hard to have a consistent class on the weekends. We do often offer workshops/bootcamps the weekends that we are in town.
If we find a suitable instructor for weekend classes we will offer classes on the weekends in the future.
Simply e-mail us or call/text us, to purchase and schedule a private lesson. All of our private lessons are taught out of our home!
All of our group class costs are per person, that means the drop in rate, the 10 class card and the 20 class card.
Our private costs are for 1 person or per couple. After 2 people it’s considered a group private lesson and you’d need to call for a quote.
Our 10 class card lasts for 3 months
Our 20 class card lasts for 6 months
If you haven’t taken formalized dance classes for salsa or bachata, you should start with our beginner class and learn the syllabus and progress through it. If you have learned Salsa on1, even to an intermediate or advanced level, you should start with our beginner class as we teach a different style of salsa.
