Attending Salsa classes but you missed your last class?
Don’t worry, we are here to take care of you.
We do our best to offer makeup classes (1 per semester) to each student. The most important thing is to email us as soon as possible (ideally before you miss the class) because have to do a lot of coordination to find a spot on a different night.
Now maybe the spot we offered you (you can’t do) and now you are even more worried.
Just keep this in mind 🥰
The big picture is, even if you miss one class it’s not a deal-breaker, especially if you are Salsa level two and above. It’s not great if you miss classes, definitely, you don’t want to come back to class and feel overwhelmed. Not only is that bad for you, but that’s not a great experience for the other students dancing with you. So the first option is we offer you a free social or party. Definitely take us up on that offer. Come out and dance.
For Salsa level one, we have salsa level one DVDs. Sometimes we offer the DVD for free if we can. Normally it costs $15, or email a syllabus.
If you can’t do makeup we’ll offer you a free social especially if you’re level two or above in Salsa or Bachata. If you pick a date, I would suggest picking the Saturday party, because we offer lessons there as drop-ins.
Another option is you can do a private lesson with an instructor. Now, this is something you have to pay for. A private lesson is a great way to fill in the gaps of things you missed in a group class that your instructor can help you one on one.
Our biggest priority is that you feel like you belong on the dance floor. Part of that means keeping up with the class.
One is to accept an offer for one of our parties, especially the Saturday parties, where we do drop-in lessons. So still continue to grow. Get your feet on the dance floor.
Two, you hire one of the instructors to help you catch up. And that is a separate payment you have to make.
Three, if you’re level one, we can sometimes make an exception and offer you one of our level one DVDs for free. So you can still keep up with the class.
There is always help because we love you and we want you to feel good on the dance floor. So definitely, even if we’ve run out of options, we’ll still think of an option. Because we love you guys. So make sure not to give up. Email us at [email protected] so we can be creative together.
