Frequently Asked Questions

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!
What level do I have to be?

Great question! If you’re at an intermediate level and are excited to challenge yourself and try these workshops, then we absolutely encourage it! If you feel like you need some preparation, don’t hesitate to try the Wednesday drop-in classes at MMA which will get you ready for what’s to come. 

Do I have to be a current MMA student?

Not at all! While we strive our bets to be the go-to place for the most contemporary Salsa in Chicago, we also value and respect the rest of our great community. If you’ve learned elsewhere and want to join us, please do, all are welcome.
