Welcome to Social Salsa in Swindon!!!

We are a friendly, fun-loving and enthusiastic group of Salsa dancers. Each Tuesday we come together to provide Salsa classes, Socialise with friends and Dance Salsa. We love to Shine (dancing out of hold) and are keen to teach you a variety of Shines to use while dancing Salsa. Shines are a great way to discover your own preferences musically and to develop and enjoy your own style.   Shine work is great fun – excellent for your balance, spotting and timing.  We run drop in Classes on Sundays: 5.30-6.30pm for Shine practice and 6.30-7.30pm for Beginners’ Salsa.
