FAQs

Salsa is an umbrella term for a mixture of musical and dance styles that came together in Cuba to form what we know today as Salsa. Today, around the world, Salsa is danced as a social dance as well as a performance art. Typically, Salsa is danced as a partner dance with a leader and a follower. Disambiguation: Salsa- A saucy condiment that goes with your tortilla chips. You won’t find that here. We are a dance school. Our instructors are not good cooks.
When one says that they “have two left feet”, they usually refer to a general awkwardness that they feel while dancing. To this, we say, dancing is a skill. Skills can be learnt. Your perceived awkwardness on the dance floor can be combated by going to a class, where, under the guidance of expert teachers, you can learn to master the dance form. Additionally, Salsa is a social dance. The nature of social dance is that anyone, and we mean absolutely anyone, can enjoy it!
No. Bringing a partner to class is not compulsory. Many people come to Salsa classes by themselves, so it’s okay to come alone. Typically we switch partners every few minutes in class so that everyone gets to dance with everyone else.
It takes about 24 hours of class to complete our beginner level syllabus. The goal is to equip you with all the tools you would need to social dance comfortably by the end of this period. However, having said that, it also depends on how a student assimilates the information provided in class and practises the skills taught. “Practice makes perfect” is a saying as old as the hills, but it’s also as true as truth itself.
No. Age, in and of itself, is not a barrier.
In an open class format, one has a bit more flexibility and can join a batch pretty much anytime. However, consistency is recommended and we suggest that you attend classes regularly till you complete the syllabus set for your level.
The average salsa dancer spends per week- 4 hours sweating it out in a dance studio to upgrade their skills, and another 3 to 4 hours at a salsa club, dancing all night. That’s your cardio already taken care of, not to mention a host of other benefits like reduced stress, increased endorphins, diminished depression and dementia and better balance amongst others. Physical activities like dancing help you switch off from the world while keeping you engaged in the movement of your body. While dancing, you are focussed on the moment, leaving your cares to melt away. You develop a better ear for rhythm and music. You develop a whole new Social Circle. Not only will you meet new people in the class and hence expand your circle in your city of residence, but also be connected to a worldwide network of Salseras and Salseros. Salsa socials around the world are warm and welcoming and you need never feel lonely again in any part of the world. You become a much better communicator, having learned to speak and listen in turns in a partner dance!
