At Toronto Dance Salsa, we’ve created a better way to teach salsa, with an emphasis on the social experience, the teamwork and the togetherness that comes from learning something new in a supportive environment.

Because we believe salsa classes shouldn’t be rigorous or intimidating; they should be exciting and fun. That’s why we teach the true essence of salsa along with the steps – making everything simple to understand and pick up. 

Over time, with repetition, skilled guidance and the right encouragement, you’ll easily learn to salsa. Because learning new things and making new friends is exhilarating, and we’re here to experience that with you. And before you know it, you’ll be dancing up a storm in our salsa dance socials

How to find the best salsa school: 4 things to look for.

When looking for the right salsa dance school for you, make sure to keep the following things in mind:

  1. Look for down-to-earth instructors. Find a salsa school where instructors understand how difficult (and even intimidating) learning to dance can be. Your dedicated salsa instructor should serve as your fearless leader — who, being human, was also once a beginner. Dance instructors who are truly talented appreciate and relate to their students’ struggles. A dance teacher with gets you makes learning easier and more fun.
  2. Choose a salsa instructor with a sense of humour. When salsa instructors are able to poke fun at themselves, they show that there’s nothing wrong with making mistakes. You deserve a good-natured, relaxed dance instructor who embraces that we’re all growing and no one is perfect.
  3. Choose a dance instructor who uses stories. Creative, real-life stories make learning fun and the dance steps easier to grasp. The best salsa instructors don’t get too technical too fast. The best salsa instructors make learning dance steps natural and instinctive. When you learn salsa the right way, you don’t have to think about it, you just do it — almost automatically.
  4. Choose a salsa school with a culture of openness. Whenever you’re stepping into something new, you need to surround yourself with people who are open-minded and welcoming. Choose a salsa dance school that prioritizes humility, openness and vulnerability rather than perfectionism. Perfectionism is the opposite of fun.

Bottom line: Choose the Toronto school dedicated to making salsa lessons transformative and fun. We believe Toronto Dance Salsa IS that school. Drop in and try us!
