Beginners’ Salsa Solo class takes you to the world of salsa rhythms. During the class, you will get familiar with the basic steps of salsa and we will learn about technique, body movements and rhythmics. This class is suitable for everyone, no prior salsa experience is needed!

Salsa Ladies Style class is all about impressive feminine body movements and music interpretation. In addition to typical body movements and technique of salsa, the class concentrates inter alia on the use of hands and feminine impression, not forgetting show elements. Let yourself lose in all the sensuality! During the ladies styling class, you can dance with dancing heels or other dance shoes. The class is meant for those who are already familiar with the basics of salsa solo.
