Every class is followed by a relaxed friendly social playing all Timba (Cuban Salsa) from 9:30-11pm. The social is open to all and is free. Beginners: get some dinner or stay and watch the advanced students and come back for the Social.

Salsa Nick has designed a 3 week workshop to get you familiar with the many aspects of Cuban Salsa or Casino. We will cover the important aspects of the Rhythm, footwork, partnering technique, Casino, Rueda, Suelta and a brief intro to contributing Cuban dances (Son, Rumba, Cha Cha Cha and Mambo). Everything you need to get out on the dance floor and/or continue in our many other Rueda and Casino classes.

New Salsa dancers: Have no fear; you can learn both Salsa and Salsa Rueda at the same time. In fact it is a great way to learn club style dancing. The skills you learn from dancing this style of Salsa will make you a better club dancer in the end.

Experienced Salsa Dancers: Even if you have been dancing Salsa for awhile it is a good idea to start at the beginning when learning the Salsa Rueda curriculum. Here is your opportunity. All the info you need to adapt to the Cuban style
