Del and Laura make sure you get individual feedback, so you never feel like you are being over looked. It’s a wonderful community, very welcoming, and I have made some great friends in the process.

Frequently Asked Questionss


Class will begin weekly starting on March 2nd and run from 8:30 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Normal classes from our competition are usually only 60 minutes. The Salsa Bootcamp is a whole 90 minutes every week for 8 whole weeks (that’s the equivalent of 12 weeks from the other guys!). You will learn your basics and set yourself up for success!

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.
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!
Great question! We understand life happens so if you miss a class, we’ve got you covered! We provide video recaps of every weeks material on the included Private Facebook Group so you can practice at home and never get left behind!
