Welcome to Social Salsa in Swindon:)

Tuesdays To Take Salsa Dance Classes and enjoy dancing Social Salsa.  We are in the Community Centre Hall next door to Christ Church, Old Town, Swindon, SN1 3HB.

Do join us this coming Tuesday 6th December to take classes, socialise and dance Social Salsa.  This is Week Six of our 6 week Courses for Levels 1,2,3, and 4.   Our next course starts on Tuesday 17th January 2017!!!

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.  Thank you to those dancers who have already enrolled on our courses.  There is still time to join our courses  – either call or text me for details or come along on the night, I will be there from around 7.15pm.  If you would like to purchase a gift voucher for our 6 week course as a Christmas present or New Years Resolution please just say or send me a text or an email via our contact form.  

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 in the New Year.

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.  This is a “Drop-In” night for all levels of dancers.  This way we all support and encourage each other.  It will include a warm up and lots of great music to dance to.  The Team are here to answer any questions and freestyle with you.  If you are new to Free-styling and/or would like some help to get started we will also be giving a short Class or two (depending on the night) containing the key ingredients to Free-styling. 



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


On Tuesday 13th December we will be holding our first Christmas Party and see this as an opportunity for all our members and their friends and family to celebrate Christmas together.  Please bring some nibbles and drinks to share.  Tea, coffee and water will be available as usual.  There will be: a fun warm up, info on leading and following, a class for all to try and lots of great music. Fancy dress is optional and all Elves will be welcome!!

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 and dance salsa.

We open at 7.30pm, the courses we provide cost £36 for 6 weeks.  Or pro-rata if you commence the course after week one.  You may pay by cash or cheque, or via Bank Transfer if you ask me for the details.  If you are visiting the area you may come along and join our Level 4 Class which can be taken as a “Drop in” class costing £8.  Tea, coffee and water is offered with our compliments.  There is free parking and you may bring your own drinks and nibbles.

Our next courses commence on  Tuesday 17th January 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.

Our Classes are held at Christchurch Community Centre in Old Town, Swindon, SN1 3HB.

If you have a desire to learn salsa then please go for 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.  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 do so 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
