Free Latin Dance Intro:
- 8:30pm Free Latin Dance Intro Class
This is a Free Latin Dance Intro class that anyone can join in and it's aimed at beginners and all levels of other dances, everyone is welcome to join in for fun. We teach one of the types of classes; Merengue, Cha Cha, Salsa, Mambo, Bachata or Kizomba. The after class we will play 15mins of that style of music to practice to, before the full mix kicks in. See the dates above for which type of class it is.
If you want to learn Salsa, Bachata or Kizomba etc to a higher level we recommend joining our courses. As these classes during these nights are not progressive. These introductory classes called "Intro's" are intended for you to try out a dance style at the most basic level to get started.
Latin Parties in 2 Rooms
From 10pm the party will split into 2 rooms at Salas Latina, so there is more Salsa Bachata & Kizomba for everyone.
The only exception is when there is a showcase performance night.

Performance Showcase Nights:
On these nights we showcase performances from Salsa Latina and there is no Intro class, just a party & showcase usually around 9:30pm 10pm or 10:30pm. There is a party on these nights too so you can watch a show and have a dance during the night. Usually these nights are in the last few months in the year.
• Is there any Lessons on thie night?
Yes, but we do recommend joining our beginner classes during the week at our Studio at Salsa Latina so you can learn and maximise your fun during these party nights.
• I'm a beginner dancer, should I come?
absolutely, its the fastest way to learn when mixing social dancing with regular Salsa classes you'll learn up 10 times faster. It's like practice on steroids!e.
• Can I bring my friends?
Yes everyone is welcome including non-dancers.
• Are there Performances?
Sometimes there are the odd surprise performance and some months we have a full on show. Showcases are usually a set of performances around 10pm and generally listed above on the dates and usually in the later part of the year.
• Is it a Latin Night or a Salsa Night?
This is a Partner dance based Salsa Latin night not a Reggaeton Latin Night .... Find out the difference >
• How come its Free?
We do this to support & grow the Salsa, Bachata & Kizomba community in Christchurch and New Zealand, our dance Classes offset the cost of running this event. So please support our Salsa Classes, Bachata Classes & Kizomba Classes.
