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.

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!

It began in Barcelona

Two summers ago, whilst dealing with a pretty tough breakup I convinced a friend to grab her passport and come on a spontaneous adventure to Spain and Portugal. After so many amazing experiences, the one that truly captured my heart and set my soul alive came in the early hours of the morning in Barcelona. One evening, unplanned and unexpected we found ourselves in the backstreets of Barcelona which were strung as far as the eye could see with colourful lights and lanterns, crowded with people and filled with the sound of what would turn out to be Salsa! Before I knew it, I was asked to dance and clumsily tried to follow the lead of a beaming Catalonian. I didn’t know what I was doing and it was all I could do not to stand

Course start dates 2018

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.
