Welcome to Social Salsa Dance Classes in Swindon.  

Social Salsa Dance Classes

At Social Salsa in Swindon we are delivering Social Salsa dance classes in 6 Class Courses for Beginner, Improver and Intermediate dancers.

Each class links to the next in a structured progression of moves and techniques.

Each week your moves will feel more comfortable and your collection of moves will be added to.

You will understand the important foundations of Cross Body Salsa and be able to implement them for yourself.

Level One is for beginners and Level Two is for beginners who understand the timing and basic footwork.  

Level three is for those dancers who have progressed with us and for those who already know the timing, basic steps, cross body leads and right and left turns.  In Level three we cover one and a half pivot turns and single spins amongst other moves.

Level four contains double spins, several new moves and linking complex combinations.

Level five links complex combinations and continues building on our pivot turns.

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