Free Latin Dance Classes are now footwork aka Shine classes designed for everyone on every level to join & have fun, including new beginners and to higher levels. We have changed from the past when we included partnerwork. The class will start with the basics of a dance style like Bachata or Salsa then we move to a "Shine Challenge" so higher levels can have some fun too.
We have now made partnerwork classes exclusive to courses during the week nights only. ... see here for courses>
- Shines are fun solo dancing classes and will not include partnerwork. Learning to dance with the steps is the most important..
.... learn more about what shines are and how they improve your dancing... read More >

Try one of our Salsa, Bachata or Kizomba beginner courses during week nights, where you can learn everything from the beginning with a Free 1st class. You might also like to try a few of our Free Online Dance Video Instructional classes here >
9:00pm - 10:00pm - Only on selected dates as above
On these nights we showcase performances are the main theme for the night, with performances from Salsa Latina, they also may be split in to parts if there are many performances with part #1 around 9:00pm and part 2 about 30mins later. 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 May, September, October, November. Note: on these Showcase nights there will be usually no Free Intro on that night if there are many performances and the party may be in just 1 room rather than in 2 rooms as listed below
Latin Dance Party
Dee Jay Reuben playing the greatest Salsa, Son, Cha Cha, Kizomba, Caribbean Zouk, Kompa, Bachata, Bolero & Merengue music all night.
Party in 2 Studios - The party may split into 2 rooms with Salsa & Bachata in Studio#1 and Kizomba & Zouk in Studio#2 between 10-11pm, this happens only when numbers of dancers are high or a high demand & only when there are no performances are on that night.

Usually, and you can see the dance style we are teaching on the list above.

Lessons during this night are really just a taster for classes and a bit of fun to get everyone involved.
