What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover & Debit cards.

What if I don’t have a dance partner?

Having a dance partner is always recommended but not needed. When partner dancing, all students meet, rotate and practice with one another as well as with the Instructor.

How long will it take me to learn to dance Salsa, Bachata, Merengue or Cha Cha Cha?

We get this question often, but in reality, we can only answer this question after your first class. If your first class goes well, you will probably learn at a steady pace. If you struggle through your first class, it will take longer to learn. We have all the patience to teach. Questions is? Do you have patience with yourself to learn.

How do I progress in your Beginner drop in classes if you always have new students dropping in?

We get this question often as well. Everything we teach is based on Individual Progression. What does that mean? Students progress based on how they are doing. The faster they learn the more they will be given to progress in class.

New students always start with their basic step.

What’s the difference between 6 week courses and drop in classes?

6 Week courses are always recommended as the best way to start if you can commit (keyword commit). You will be with the same group of students for 6 weeks. There is a class curriculum with a weekly review and new moves added.

Drop in classes are for students who cannot commit and want to attend as their schedules allow.

What is the VIP member ship?

3 month VIP membership $150. You get 2 (1 hour) private lessons – reg price $90 and a 20% discount on all future private and drop in group classes for up to 3 months.

Yearly VIP membership $600. You get 10 (1 hour) private lessons and a 20% discount on all future private and drop in group classes for up to a year from the date of your first private lesson.

Private lessons are good for 1 or 2 persons.

Are your Salsa lessons taught On1 or On2?

All of our Salsa lessons are taught On2 because of the syncopation with the music and the rhythm of the Tumbao (the connection between the dance and the rhythm of the Tumbao are explained in class and is a very important part of your Salsa learning process).
