Salsa has always been my favourite activity, so I am very excited to see many London schools going back to class. As salsa classes count as an organised sport or exercise classes, the 6 people rule which came to England on the 14th September, does not apply.
Ready to start dancing?
W1K 6TN, £14 (weekday), £12 (Sunday)
Classes available Monday, Thursday and Sunday
From beginners to advanced
Cuban salsa has always been my favourite. This original style of salsa is danced more circular and more ‘tongue in cheek’, having lots of playful feet or upper body movements.
Available on Tuesdays outdoors in London Bridge
Available on Saturdays in Waterloo (SE1 8NY)
From Beginners to Intermediate, solo and couples
Salsateka is another dance school offering salsa classes back in class. To ensure covid-secure environment the classes cater now to solo students or ‘bubble couples’ (no changing partners during the class).
Available Saturday, 27th September
As a one of 2 hour footwork workshop combining salsa with Afro Cuban, pachanga, lyrical and so on, this seems like a fun and challenging activity. Aimed at dancers with Intermediate level, might be a great way to spend Saturday if you want to have more tools in your dancing quiver.
SW11 8AU, £6 for 1h, £9 for 2hrs (NUS £4 and £5)
Available drop in class every Wednesday
Hosted by the Latin Collective, this weekly drop in outdoors class is a great way for solo dancers to break their week. Classes are available at multiple levels, so this is a great place for beginners to start their salsa journey.
E1 1SE, £25
Classes on Mondays 21st and 28th September
Loco London Salsa is currently offering 2 Intensive Salsa courses – Body conditioning & isolation and Salsa con Afro Choreo. Although listed as open level I would definitely recommend to join this course if you had attended some beginners classes before.
