Bristol's Premiere Salsa and Latin Dance School


Every Thursday night at the South Bristol Sports Centre we run 6 classes. These cater for the complete beginner, through to the most advanced Salsa dancer. We also run: Bachata, Ladies Styling, Rueda, Cha Cha Cha, Cuban Salsa and other Latin courses at the same venue. New courses start every 8 weeks and you can pay on-line to secure your place, or on the night at the venue.

Additionally, we hold regular parties at the Fry Club in Keynsham where everybody is welcome including complete beginners. The venue is within easy reach of both Bristol and Bath as it is situated just off the North Circular ring road. We also run the UK's largest and best one day of workshops here. We hire around 14 teachers both National and International and provide around 24 workshops all in that one day.

Our teachers are available for private lessons upon request. We are also available for hire for corporate or private events. Maybe you have a hen night coming up, a birthday or a team building exercise. We can make your event fun, provide an exclusive ice-breaking activity and teach your guests something new!


Thursday Weekly Class

Starting Thursday 29th January 2015.

SBSC Weekly salsa dance courseHow about doing something that is designed to be fun, that will increase your fitness, help you lose weight whilst meeting new people?

We will teach you to dance the hot Latin dance that is Salsa!

In just eight short weeks we will teach you how to; Mambo, Rumba, Back Step, Walk Turn, Cross Body, Cross Body Lead with an outside Turn and more...

A Common excuse people give for not attending is, "I can't dance". My reply is always the same, "If you could dance you wouldn't need to attend the classes".

Everyone is in the same boat on our beginners courses and we have a range of students from 18-60.

What if you might miss a class(s) due to work or holidays? Simply come along early upon your return and we will get one of our 5 instructors to give you one-to-one instruction, ensuring you never fall behind. In fact any time you feel you would like one-to-one tuition, just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

We do not go for the night club environment; we prefer the safer, more relaxed pace of teaching in a quality function room. Benefits include; free off road parking, cheaper bar and the friendliest group of people you will ever meet. If you don't believe us you are welcome to come and watch one night!

As a special offer, anybody registering to learn the 'lead' steps is entitled to a 50% discount on this course. That means you can attend an eight week course for just £22.50; you do the maths as to how much that costs per lesson!

Holiday of a lifetime to Cuba 2015

We have had another great trip this year and we are working on expanding to two trips in 2015. One trip will be around August time so that teachers who can't get time off school can join us and one trip will be in November when we will be spending a week attending the Cuban dance congress held in the capital city being Havana - before heading to the beach to unwind.

We can't give you any more details at the moment as the airline companies do not release the best flight deals until the start of each year. So in the meantime, get saving for your deposit and check out the website towards the end of January 2015.
