A bit about the Latin Dance Society

If you have always wanted a chance to try Cuban salsa, or if you're just looking for something to do to disconnect from university every now and then here's your chance to join us, learn a new skill and meet a bunch of people with similar interests.

Who can join the Latin Dance Society?

Whether you are an experienced dancer or you've never heard of Cuban salsa before, there's a place for you in the Latin Dance Society.

We're a new society, which means most of our members have never danced before, so if you have never been able to tell your left foot from your other left foot, this is the perfect time to join us!

You don't need to bring a partner, we'll try to get all the spare dancers (which is usually most of the people on the class) dancing together and switching partners every now and then. However, if you want to be absolutely certain you'll get someone dancing full time with you, you can always try to get someone to come with you.

Our Activities

  • Weekly Salsa Lessons: Every Wednesday, the professional dancers Yainer Carbonell Vegueriz and Anneta La Rusa will teach us Cuban Salsa. There will be one beginners group and one intermediate/advanced group. 
  • Weekly Salsa Practicas: On Fridays 6-9, we'll be having a free practice session for everyone that attends the Wednesday class to build up on their own level of salsa and have some fun with the rest of the members of the society (OBS: only available for Wednesday class students!).
  • Salsa Nights: Once you feel confident with your salsa, we'll be going together to the major salsa events in the area, dancing with other people, having a few drinks and enjoying ourselves.
