The Beginner Salsa Bootcamp is a three-hour introductory workshop for people new to salsa dancing. It provides a more intensive and practical learning experience than a drop-in beginner lesson. Many people who register for weekly classes start off with this introductory salsa bootcamp to try salsa dancing and see if it’s something they enjoy.
As the bootcamp is taught by a number of different instructors it’s also a great opportunity to try different instructors and experience their different teaching methods and see which teaching style suits you best.
• Are you an absolute beginner and want to learn how to dance salsa? • Do you have two left feet?
• Are you too busy during the week to do weekly salsa classes? • Want to try a one-day salsa lesson on the weekend to see if you like it?
If you answered yes to any of the above, then the Beginner Salsa Bootcamp is perfect for you!
