Our classes are divided into 6 week periods. The Salsa Beginners & Improvers classes are real courses with classes that build on the previous week’s material. For these classes, it’s best to start at the beginning. For Intermediate and higher you can start at any point as each week it is a new class.
To join a class you can purchase either a class card or a membership. After purchasing you have to register for the classes you want to join. The credits can be used in any class of the schedule as long as it fits your level. See all pricing options here.
To register please make a separate account for each person with a different email address, do not try to put multiple people on one account. Once you have purchased the lesson-credits you can select the classes you want to join. It’s possible to select all six weeks at once or you can decide per week.
We teach in two locations, Club Lite and Chasse Dance Studio. Please look in the schedule where your class is. Scroll down for the addresses.
UPCOMING PERIODS (select the date in the schedule calendar)
If you can’t see the schedule on your device it’s most likely because of the cookie settings. Another option is to download our app on your mobile or tablet. Payments on the app, however, can only be made with a credit card. On the site, you can also pay with Ideal.
See below a brief description of our levels. Please note that we can’t tell you exactly what your level is without seeing you in action as each person is different. Two people who took all the same classes can dance on completely different levels.
What’s at least as important as the previous classes you took is how often you go out and burn the dance floor. The more you practice the better you become!
Level 1 | Salsa Beginners
This is our most basic level in which you learn the fundamentals of Latin partner dancing. This is more than just doing “the steps” as we emphasize on posture, arm movements and lead & follow techniques
Level 2 | Salsa Improvers
In our second level we go further in the lead & follow techniques, you’ll learn new basic turns and more foot work. This is not the right level if you don’t know your basics yet, even if you are talented or have been on a vacation to a latin country and danced a lot with the locals 😉
Level 3 | Salsa Intermediate
Everything you have learned in the basic courses is now combined into longer and more complicated turn patterns. There will also be more emphasis on styling, especially for the ladies.
Level 4 | Salsa Semi Advanced
In our Semi Advanced level, you are expected to have a good overall lead & follow technique, know your basic turns and are comfortable on the dance floor. We will also start with Spin Techniques.
Level 5 | Salsa Advanced
The difference between our Semi Advanced and Advanced is mostly the level of the participants, as the turn patterns are not necessarily more complicated. Ladies, however, MUST know how to spin!
We teach in two locations, please make sure you look at the schedule where your class is.
