Classes & Courses


Come join me for a 5 week beginner salsa class on the beautiful City Island!  Let’s get moving and grooving to the vivacious sounds of Latin music.  We have been cooped up for so long and now it’s time to get back out and have some fun!

The course is for absolute beginners or those who need to brush up their technique or who need a refresher course because they haven’t danced in a long while.  Course will start with learning the basic steps for both partnering and open shines and will progress in difficulty each week.  There will be a short practice party after the last class on 8/18!
