SALSA lessons and Dance Socials Downtown Vancouver
Welcome to Salsastudio. We offer Salsa lessons and we guarantee you will have FUN!!!
Our Salsa series are 6 weeks, one hour per class. Each level and series offers different materials and we review each class so you never forget what you learned.
At this time we can only offer our Salsa and Bachata dance lessons to people who can bring their own partner. We will be following social distancing rules applying to couples at 3 meters and there will not be partner switching at this time. All our Latin dance classes are progressive and reviewed during the each dance class. We will also be hosting outdoor dancing for all the dancers who have a dance partner to attend with. Registered classes can be transferred but can not be refunded once the lesson date has started.
We are starting our new MONDAY SALSA series on AUGUST 3 Mondays for Salsa Intro and Intermediate lessons and AUGUST 5 Wednesdays for Salsa Advanced and Choreo lessons. Our lessons are progressive, drop ins are welcome.

You can take this series until you feel comfortable to move on to the ultimate Salsa class, the Choreography Salsa performance class. DROP IN Welcome but must have taken minimum 2 series of Salsa Intermediate.

MAMBO is similar to Salsa in terms of count and steps but the flavour is very much different as you dance Mambo with 2 steps forward and gives it a very different dynamic.
