How to Join a course or team?
New courses usually at the beginning of year only in February & March performance teams will start as 8 week courses then progress to a team. You need to have either graded from beginners or be at an intermediate or above level already at Salsa Latina. So start classes in Salsa or Bachata before you get to the performance class. If you need to grade or unsure please contact us about this, you can read more about gradings on this page here >
If there is a course available, just turn up on the start date and get a Free class to try, but do make sure you are at the right level. If you are unsure please chat to a teacher prior.
Frequently Asked Questions
• Do I need a partner?
Initially this course is like a regular class with a routine in mind, we swap partners around like a normal class. But it will help if you have a partner lined up. We leave this up to students to arrange their partner by the end of the 8 week course, but we can help with ideas, so do chat to us.
• Where is the best place to begin?
We would recommend Bachata to start and Salsa second, as the level will be higher for Salsa than Bachata from 2021 onward.
• Do I need to Grade?
Yes you will. From 2021 we have introduced gradings, so if you have never been to our dance school, you can join in a group grading or a private grading. This ensures people have covered their basics before joining. We highly recommend joining classes prior to joining a course.
• No Course Available Now?
If there is no course available right now, we recommend joining our regular Latin dance Classes in Salsa or Bachata to build your level up. We are always on the look out for new people. If you are interested in performing please get in contact with us regardless of the course or not. No partner is required when joining. Salsa, Bachata & Solo Performance courses can lead into performing & competitions, but not a requirement.
• How to I get more information?
Turn up on the start date and we will explain everything within the first few weeks, come try it out first.
• What if I miss the start date?
Once the course has gone past 3 weeks it will get really hard to catch up but its still possible. You will need to pay, but you can still join, please make contact if you intend to join after 2 weeks.
• Do I need to perform?
No you are not required to perform, but its enouraged. But do let us know after a few weeks from the start date.
• Will there be an Audition?
Initially there wont to join the course, but after 8 weeks there will be and audition to continue into the team. Fixed Dance partners will be recommended from that point onward.
No need to enrol or register if you are already taking our classes, if you haven't taken any of our classes before please register, otherwise simply turn up to the start dates.
