Let’s keep evolving your Salsa dancing abilites!

Dance to different music

In our beginner Salsa Bootcamp, we purposely used more beginner friendly music to introduce our students to the timing of ‘on2.’ Now that you know how to move to the music, we’ll keep throwing different types of Salsa at you to keep your ears and movement on time and on point.

Growing Your Foundation

You should know by now that we train our dancers to be indepedant and mindful of their own dancing ability. As such, your fundamental steps are crucial to your continued growth. We’ll keep drilling you and adding even more to your foundation to make you strong and confident on the dance floor!

Refining your Partner Dancing

Since you’ve done our first Bootcamp, you should now know that partner dancing is harmonious movement of two bodies. As such, we’ll continue to teach the leads to be clear communicators and our follows to be precise listeners. You’re on your way to becoming a favorite at the socials and the clubs.

Del and Laura are amazing at breaking down the foundation and technique in every class, while creating a friendly and fun atmosphere! I also really love all the other students I have met at MMA – you will definitely make great friends along the way during you dance journey here! Toshi O.

Outstanding instruction by outstanding people! If you ever decide to take up salsa, or need to dust off your dance shoes, MMA is the place. The instructors are not only highly skilled and professional, but also a share pleasure to work with. I give my highest rating and recommendation for this truly outstanding dance company.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there makeup classes?
Great question! In addition to our intermediate Bootcamp, we also offer a weekly drop-in class which is also intermediate level. The difference is, that class is more of a workshop-style class and more free form. Still, you’ll find a lot of value in the Open Yellow Belt class and can use it as a makeup should you miss a Bootcamp 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.
