We have some great shines and styling for our warm ups and routines.  Lesson planning is continuing for our Level 5 course which we are aiming to deliver on Tuesday 7th March.  We have the Hall till 10pm now so you may stay a bit later on Tuesdays to practice what you have just learnt and make new friends. We will also be available to answer any questions you may have during this extra time and will also be delighted to dance with you.  Our Classes start at 7.30pm with a warm up and class for levels 4&2. We have a one track break for dancing. Then we have a warm up and class at 8.30pm for levels 3&1. Then we have till 10pm to dance, chat with friends, ask questions, learn a few shines. If you are in-between levels then you are very welcome to take both, there is no extra charge for this.  You may attend the sister course at any of our other venues for no extra cost.  Our 6 week courses cost £36 and can be paid for by Bank Transfer or with cash or cheque before or at the first class.

Based in Swindon, we are here to provide Classes and Party Nights for dancers in Swindon, Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and surrounding areas.  Dancers in Purton, Wantage, Uffington, Witney, Marlborough, Cirencester, Cricklade, Faringdon, Highworth, Lechlade and many other near by Towns are all welcome. 

Available throughout the year we provide 6/7 week courses for Levels 1,2, 3 and 4 where you can learn to dance Salsa in groups of similar abilities.      

Our Level 4 (Improvers/Intermediate) Class is now available to attend on a  “Drop In” basis at £8 per Class.  

Our Courses “Beginners’ Plus” (Level 2) and “Improvers/Intermediate” (Level 4) start at 7.30-8.30pm.  So Levels 2 and 4 will run in the first hour.  

In our second hour “Beginners” (Level 1) and “Improvers” (Level 3) will commence at 8.30-9.30pm.  So Levels 3 and 1 will run in the second hour.

Our Courses cost £36 for the 6 weeks and are to be paid for on or before the first class – you can pay by bank transfer, cash or cheque.  Each Level includes skills and steps that you will need to accomplish before moving onto the next Level.  Our Courses are structured to enable you to achieve this.   

Level 4 is the one level available on a drop-in basis at £8 per class to students that are confident in leading and following single spins.  

Level 4 is also available as a six week course at £36 to be paid in advance, i.e. before or at the first class.    

Everyone is doing so well we are now looking into providing Level 5 from 7th March.

To compliment our Classes we are also providing a “Party-Style” Week 7 night – as a pause between Courses.  This is a time for all levels of dancers to come together and try out/practice the skills they have been learning throughout the previous weeks.  

Our next “Week 7 Tuesday Party Style Night” is Tuesday 28th February 2017.  Please “Save the Date” in your Diary 🙂 


We are also hosting Saturday Salsa Party Nights, we hope you will join us in this lovely Community Hall where dancers from all of Swindon and the surrounding areas can come together and dance salsa.

Our next Saturday Party Night

is 4th March.  Do “Save the Date” in your Diary and come along, we start with a footwork class and how to use shines or a class for new beginners, followed by your choice of our usual Improvers/Intermediate Class or Beginners plus Salsa Class.  Then Music from 9.30pm where we play some great Salsa tracks with the occasional Bachata and Kizomba track too.  We can dance till 11.30pm.  

Our following Saturday Party Nights are:

First Saturday of the month:

3rd June 1st July 2nd September 7th October 4th November 2nd December 2017

Each class and course links to the next in a structured progression of moves and techniques.  We are in collaboration with Basil Pinnock, www.Dance2Salsa.co.uk

Through this system of learning each week your moves will feel more familiar and your collection of steps will be added to.

You will understand the important foundations of Cross Body Salsa and be able to implement the moves whilst free styling.  We are very keen to encourage leading and following outside of the class – i.e. free styling.  Questions are always welcomed and encouraged.  We ask you to practice your dance moves after and before the classes as it is the action of putting your learning into thoughtful action that ensures your knowledge becomes consolidated into your dance development.

We now have Classes 3 days of the week:
Monday at Faringdon 6.30pm at the Catholic Church Hall, it has a small car park and is to the left of the Budgens car park. Enter the dead-end road between the houses and the Budgens car park. Drive/walk to the end of this it is tucked into the righthand corner. Followed by Fairford 8.15pm at the Palmer Hall opposite Londis and next door to the Plough Pub.
Tuesday in Old Town, Swindon from 7.30pm – 10pm at Christ Church Community Centre, SN1 3HB.
Thursday at the Old School Hall, SN6 7RT, Hannington 7pm. Drive into Hannington and pass the Jolly Tar Pub on your left. Shortly afterwards turn right at the green triangle and up the road into Nell Hill. The Hall is on your left.
Once you have joined a 6 week course at any of our venues you are welcome to attend the other venues for no extra charge. This is a great way to practice and also meet fellow dancers.

If you have a desire to learn Salsa then do follow it.  We have all been where you are now.  As with learning all new skills it takes; time, desire and commitment to achieve your goals.  Make 2017 the Year you achieve the Learn & Dance Salsa Challenge!!  

Learning through repetition, on a regular basis, in groups of similar abilities.  Practicing your moves and adding onto your knowledge base each week will give you the opportunity to acquire the skills necessary for your individual dance development.  It just takes that first step of deciding to start the course.

We hope you will choose to take that first step and look forward to meeting you soon.

Please spread the word as the more the merrier!!!!

If you have any questions please give me a call or text on 07766265223.

Many thanks and see you soon :))))))
