Dear Valued Students

Due to the ongoing situation involving COVID-19, we are closing our doors effective March 12th.

As a dance studio, we are considered a non-essential business and the forecast for when we can resume our business looks uncertain. In a best case scenario, we’re hoping to start up again in summer/fall of 2020. Of course, we’ll keep you posted with any news on this page. 

In the meantime, we’ve put in a TON of time and energy building a new online dance school and it would mean the world to us if you would consider supporting us at there at SALSA DANCE PLANET.

You can dance and our Salsa classes can show you how!

Our boutique Salsa studio applies a full focus on our main passion, dancing Salsa on2. You can trust that we’re completely committed to staying on the cutting edge of Salsa as it’s done NOW, not 8 years ago. Find out more information on how we can help you feel confident and cool on the dance floor!

Voted Chicago’s best dance studio!

We were recently recognized by the Chicago Reader as the best dance studio in the city! We’re deeply honored and are working hard to keep the high standard we’ve set with our Salsa dance classes. We’d like to share this honor with our wonderful students who give their best effort and make our work so enjoyable! Without them, there is no us!
