Learn and Dance Salsa with us in the excellent Community Centre next door to Christ Church in Old Town, Swindon, SN1 3HB.

We are looking forward to starting back on Tuesday 17th January 2017 at 7.30pm.  Do join us on Tuesday 17th January to take classes, socialise and dance Social Salsa.  This is Week One of our 6 week Courses for Levels 1,2,3, and 4.  Our beginners’ courses in Faringdon, Fairford and Hannington also start in the same week.  

Try Salsa and make 2017 the Year you learn a new skill.  Salsa dance is wonderful, the music is uplifting and it will put a big grin on your face!!!!  It’s a great way to make new friends, increase your activity levels and take a new challenge.  So get up offa that sofa and sign up now.  Give me a text on 07766265223 and I will call you back to chat about our classes and how you can join our courses which start on Tuesday 17th January.  



We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year.
We are getting ready now for our classes starting Tuesday 17th January.
So looking forward to seeing you all again 🙂 and putting together some great new shines for our warm ups and routines.
I’m also wondering how we can set up our Level 5 class from
7th March and hoping you will all stay a bit later now on Tuesdays to practice your classes from 9.30-10pm as I have booked the Hall in order for you to do so. We will be available to help with any issues you have during this time and will also be delighted to dance with you. I’m looking forward to meeting the people who have already joined our beginners’ class and hoping that many more will arrive on the 17th. If you have any questions about which Level you should join please let me know. 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. Our 6 week courses cost £36 and must be paid for in advance by Bank Transfer or on the day with cash or cheque.
Please spread the word as the more the merrier!!!!
Many thanks and see you soon :))))))

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

Available throughout the year we provide 6 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 February.  Do “Save the Date” in your Diary and come along, we start with an On2 footwork class and warm up, followed by your choice of our usual On1 Improvers/Intermediate Class or On1 Beginners 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:

4th March
1st April
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.

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.

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

All the best,

Clare Cordingley
