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.
Performance Showcase Nights:
- 9:30pm Performance Showcase (on selected dates)
On these nights we showcase performances are the main theme for the night, with performances from Salsa Latina around 9:30pm to 10pm. There is a party on these nights too so you can watch a show and have a dance during the night before and after the Show. Usually these nights are usually around April, May, September, October, November. Note: on these Showcase nights there will be no Free Intro on that night and the party may be in just 1 room rather than in 2 rooms as listed below.
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.
