Frequently Asked Questions

Why is this class only 1 hour?

In our Beginner Salsa Bootcamps, we needed the extra 30 minutes of class time to reinforce and repeat the fundamentals of the dance. Now that we’ve established the habits to succeed, we can fall back to a traditional one hour of class time.

Are there makeup classes?

While there are no official make-up classes, we do offer video recaps which provide out students with a review of all of the material that was covered in that weeks class. This way, with a little effort on your part to study, you can fit right in the following week when you come back to class. 

What kind of shoes should I wear?
We recommend flexible shoes that are comfortable to wear. Since it is a 90 minutes class, we want you to be cozy! Just make sure the shoes are supportive and won’t stick to the floor, for example, gym shoes.
What clothes should I wear?
Comfortable and casual clothes are a must! We expect to work you out so make sure you don’t come too dressed up! Of course we’ll be having a great time, but prepare to work!
Do I need a partner?
We do our best to have an even number of leads and follows. As such, we don’t require anyone to bring a partner. We also rotate partners frequently to keep everyone engaged.
