Social Salsa Dance Classes

Welcome to Social Salsa Dance Classes in Swindon.  

Social Salsa Dance Classes

OUR NEXT SET OF SOCIAL SALSA DANCE CLASSES FOR: BEGINNERS, IMPROVERS AND INTERMEDIATES START ON TUESDAY 15 OCTOBER.  To put into effect your learning from all of our Classes, our next Social Salsa Party Nights are on Saturday 16 November and Saturday 21 December. 

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.  As a result, your basic moves will become captured in your muscle memory.  Every week we will add one or two new moves and explain how your posture, frame and connection impact on the execution of these moves.


  • Level One is for beginners; those people new to Salsa dancing and anyone wishing to understand the timing and basic footwork.
  • 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.

Salsa Classes

Social Salsa in Swindon promote learning on a regular basis and in groups of similar abilities.  We offer learning in a friendly, supportive and structured manner.  Encouraging all dancers to build a strong foundation of basic steps and essential techniques.

Once you have your basic steps, timing and footwork down we will add a few new moves each week.  Always revisiting the essential techniques of posture, frame and connection.

To learn any dance, alongside your classes, there needs to an amount of learning by doing. This is when you social dance and to encourage and enable this we provide an end of course Party Night at the weekend.
