Happy Dancers

Ready for a thrilling new chapter? Look no further. Join our classes today.

In response to your feedback, we’re intensifying our focus on salsa—the beloved music and dance—while dialing down the emphasis on bachata. This shift allows us to craft a more expansive dance floor tailored for salsa enthusiasts.
Instead of having Bachata in the second big room, we’re opening it as a Salsa Romantica floor, providing nearly twice as much dancing space for salseros. If you love the music of Marc Anthony, Victor Manuel, and Los Adolescentes, this will be the place to be for you! Bachata lovers fear not! There will still be a bachata area during the parties, although it will be in a smaller room. We’ll also reduce the number of bachata workshops and use all the big rooms for Salsa workshops, increasing the dance area during the workshops.

Artist Lineup

We have put together an incredible group of both international and local world-class instructors and performers who will be showcasing their skills not only during nightly performances but also in workshops, special boot camps, and, of course, on the dance floor during evening social parties.
