We have beginners salsa courses starting directly after every 8-week course has concluded, so you never have to wait too long. We will take new students with little or no experience up to week 3; just let us know and you can come in for a quick catch-up before the main class. After this time, we may only take on new students for the current running course if you've had previous dance experience.
Oh my days, can you believe it!? November is nearly at an end which can only mean one thing! The Salsa Bristol Christmas Party night is nearly upon us again! Yes, that's right it's time to raid the wardrobe for a sparkly outfit or go in search through the Christmas decorations for that hidden Santa Costume you hide from the kids every year!
As some of you are aware, Alex and Hannah are off on a long holiday for several weeks, so from November 18th to December 6th we will be having guest teachers filling in for them.
Alex and Hannah will be back for our Christmas party on the 13th December.

Updated 28th August 2018:
From Thursday the 6th September, we will be at St Gerard Majella Church hall on the Knowle/Brislington/Hengrove border, until further notice. Unfortunately, due to a long-term booking, we will no longer have access to the Hungerford Community Centre on a Thursday evening after our last class there on the 30th of August.
The hall's main entrance is located in Buller Road, just off of Talbot Hill and is a 1 mile, 5 minute drive from the South Bristol Sports Centre. It is also located approximately just a 6 minute walk from the Broadwalk bus stops on the A37.
All classes, start times, and prices will remain the same.

You may have heard that our long-time weekly venue; South Bristol Sports Centre, had a major fire and suffered severe damage to the gym
At the beginning of the month, we had to close due to the Beast from the East showering us with heavy snow and blowing in icy winds causing many places including South Bristol Sports Centre to close! We haven't had to close our doors since 2010 again which was due to heavy snow and icy conditions.
Although it was only for that one week, I sure did miss my friendly, funny students and having a few dances. Thankfully round 2 of Beast from the East this week missed our Thursday evenings, so I'm very relieved not to be missing everyone and keeping myself fit and warm!
Why -Who – Where – When -Cost – contact – any genre
Nothing will advance your dancing quicker than taking private lessons with a qualified teacher. There are many reasons for taking such lessons, and these can include preparation for a competition; advancing your social dance skills, focusing on a specific technique such as turns & spins, maybe you want to learn the first dance for your wedding, or maybe you want a corporate day.
One of the best things about private lessons is you can often dictate where and when you want them. If the first teacher you contact isn’t available as and when you want them, simply find another that can. Like most things in life, teachers are different. You might remember your school days when you had a preference of teachers, weren’t those classes more fun and didn’t you learn more. Well, it’s the same with dancing,
Following on from my last selection of tracks, here's my second offering of tracks that I hope you'll like...
Don't forget that you can submit your favourite tracks that get you up on the dancefloor- just get in touch with me via the contact page (try and supply a link to a YouTube video if you can as there's often more than one version of a song)!
