Salsa and the Art of the Three P’s

Theodore Roosevelt once said that “Nothing worth having comes easy” – I’ll expand on that slightly by saying “nothing worthwhile comes easy”.

This is true of learning how to dance.

There are a few, lucky, people out there who pick up the art of dance naturally and breeze through to greatness without blinking an eye (or so it seems). However, for the rest of us mere mortals, we have to work at it.

For me, learning to dance (starting with salsa) has potentially been the best decision I made – I have made many good friends and have a decent social life, I even have my current job through the connections I have made from learning to dance.

The people you meet are wide-ranging, are friendly, open and welcoming.

But to get to the point where you can start getting the most out of dancing through

Temporary Venue Change Thursday 15th Aug

Thursday 15th August 2019

Our current venue at St Gerard Majella is having the floor refurbished so we are moving back to the Hungerford Community Centre in Hungerford Road on the 15th of August. We expect this will be just for one week.

Course Start Dates 2019

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.

We have a temporary home for Thursday classes

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.

Please see the venue page here for address and more details.

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

Snow Salsa!

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!
