Level Guidelines

SALSATECA Dance School is one of the original Latin American Dance schools in London. It offers Cuban and Cross Body style Salsa and Bachata classes on a regular basis for beginners, improvers, intermediate and advanced students.

SALSATECA’s team of  teachers is a group of friendly and knowledgeable instructors from all over the world (click here to learn more about Salsateca and our team).

Most of them are part of the UK alliance of professional dance teachers! It is of the utmost importance for us to introduce the true Latin American sound to people, as well as dance moves and share our enthusiasm and passion for them. This is why we focus on social dancing, rather than aim at performances, shows or competitions. In this way, everyone can experience the pleasure of dancing!

Most of our classes are followed by a club or social dancing time at no extra cost! Make the most of it!

We strongly recommend every student to stay after the classes.

Practising at different song's tempo and styles of music is necessary in order to integrate your new knowledge and improve your learning process!
