No, but we do recommend joining our beginner classes  during the week at our Studio at Salsa Latina or Salsa Night Fever which includes a class before the party on Saturday.

• 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 help offset the cost of running this Latin Dance Event. So please do support our dance school & Salsa Classes, Bachata Classes Kizomba Classes.

• Will these nights go back to Casa Publica?

Due to the currently climate, which affects many busineses and their functionality, so these Friday events are running Salsa Latina in the mean time until we can hold these events back in Casa Publica.
