“It’s important to choose a Salsa studio that has consistent class schedules and a community in which you can grow.”
There are a number of ways to choose a Salsa school: the most straightforward is to Google search schools in your area. Contact the studios that are suitable for your location and ask to watch a class (or watch whatever videos the studio provides on the site).
You can also attend a few club classes in your community – attend a variety of club classes (which are often included in the price of cover charge at the door) to try out a variety of instructors. Once you find an instructor whose personality and energy you like, research more about his/her studio and see if their class schedule and location suits yours.
You can also go to a Salsa club and watch people dance on a social Salsa dance floor and pick out dancers whose style you like and aspire to emulate. Approach that dancer (when they’re not dancing) and ask them where they learned to dance.
It’s also important to choose a Salsa studio that has consistent class schedules and a community in which you can grow. As a new dancer, repetition and practice is key – a studio that gives you opportunities to progress with a group class from one level to the next will also support you with many opportunities to practice and socialize with your fellow students. Repetition and practice is the only way to building muscle memory and progressing with your Salsa dancing.
