Private Latin Dance Lessons

Explore the world of Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Cha Cha, Mambo, and Zouk with our private lessons in Christchurch, NZ. Typically, a 1-on-1 session involves one teacher and one student. However, we also accommodate couples with one teacher or even small groups.

Take private lessons in Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cha Cha, Mambo, Kizomba & Zouk with a Salsa Latina instructor. Depending on your preference, a 30-minute session may suffice to provide you with plenty to work on. It's like a quick top-up, and it's also beneficial if you miss a class or two. However, if you want to progress quickly or need a more intensive experience, we recommend booking a 1-hour session. You can easily add an extra 30 minutes to your purchase for the same day or a different day.

In a private lesson, we cover every small detail that can be overlooked in group classes, as well as any bad habits you may have picked up along the way. Each individual has their unique needs, and in group classes, it's impossible to provide the personalized attention we strive to give.
