Salsa is a fun and uplifting social dance which we truly believe benefits both body and soul. However, its technique appears much easier than it actually is. At Weybridge Salsa, we are committed to creating and nurturing a salsa community, where leaders and followers are taught properly and in a professional way, without losing the warmth and fun that this Latin dance brings to the spirit.This is why we have designed 12-week courses during which all our students will each week build up on the technique as well as foot- and partnerwork from the previous weeks.
WHAT SHALL I WEAR FOR SALSA CLASSES?
You can wear whatever you like, as long as you feel comfortable. As far as shoes are concerned, if you do not own salsa shoes, you can wear any other type of shoe, but make sure they are practical for dance. We advise women not to wear high heels unless they are proper salsa shoes.
CAN I PAY AT THE DOOR FOR WEEKLY CLASSES AND / OR PARTY?
YES! Although we do strongly recommend signing up for a course of classes, which allows you to learn the foundations and follow our specially designed program, we do understand that sometimes a busy lifestyle does not allow for that. As such payment can be done on the night, before class. Due to Covid-19 we will be only accepting card payments and to avoid any disappointment classes have to be pre-booked as we are allowed only a limited number of students.
DO I NEED A PARTNER TO SIGN UP TO THE COURSE?
A partner is NOT required to sign up to the course, however please be advised that we won't be able to rotate partners for the time being due to Covid-19 to ensure the safely and well being of all our students. We believe the most effective way to teach is to rotate partners every few steps, so that both leaders and followers get used to dancing with different people and we will return to this class model as soon as it's safe to do so. In the meantime we will structure the classes in a way that will allow you to progress even without a partner.
