Social Latin Dance Party Nights:

DJ Reuben from Salsa Latina - Playing best Latin mixes around, with 2 decades of experience in organising these kinds of events. In-fact One of the few in New Zealand who has been running regular non-stop events since 2003 for the Latin dance scene in Christchurch.

The ratio of dance styles like Salsa, Bachata & Kizomba played will be based on who is dancing at the event, it's not a strict formula.


• Any Dance Classes
Not during social nights, but we do recommend joining our Free  beginner classes during the week at Salsa Latina.

• Any performances?

On some nights near the end of the year there will be "showcase" nights, there will be a few performances during the social night and yes there will be social dancing as well. We have now made these nights Free too.

• 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!

• How come its Free?

We do this to support & grow the Salsa & Bachata community in Christchurch and New Zealand, our dance Classes help offset the cost of running this Latin Dance Event. So please do support our dance school & Salsa Classes, & Bachata Classes.
