Testimonials

4/12/2017 La Rumba is the spot to learn salsa. After returning from Colombia, I wanted to learn salsa dancing. A friend suggested this spot and I'm glad I came out. Jig and Senora teach the lessons. Very reasonably priced I recommend you buy a 3 month package for unlimited classes and come at least 2 times per week to learn. I felt comfortable with the pace and instruction. Check out YouTube if your coming before your first class, it helps a lot!! On Thurs through Sun the club goes wild. People are pretty good dancers in general and it can get a bit crowded. I'll have more to say as I improve. If you're at all interested in learning salsa or want a place to come out, stop by la rumba and check it out.

7/29/2019 If you want to learn Salsa dance, check out La Rumba on Thursday nights! The classes are taught by a seasoned Latin dance instructor and the vibe is super laid back, easy to follow instruction, friendly and fun! People who are beginners or pros are there to assist and as the night progresses, more people arrive to kick off the night! It was a very enjoyable atmosphere, not creepy at all. We had a great time learning salsa.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Do I need to pre-register?

No need to pre-register! Just come 10 minutes before the class begins to register. We accept cash or check or credit cards.

2. Who teaches the classes?

Jig and Senora teach every class as a pair. This partnership method of teaching enables instruction of both the leader and follower roles.

3. How long will it take for me to learn Salsa or Bachata?

People learn at different rates. 4 - 8 weeks of beginning level classes are recommended for a good foundation in the basic steps. Repetition is important for acquiring the muscle memory needed for dancing. It is important to master the technique and elements presented in each level before moving to the next level.  Students are encouraged to repeat classes as needed to reenforce the material taught in class. Learning to dance requires commitment and practice. Please speak to us if you have questions about what class you should be in or if you are ready to move to a more advanced level. 

4. Do I need a partner?

No, Salsa and Bachata are partnering dances, but it's not required to bring a partner because we rotate students during our classes! (it's not absolutely necessary to change partners, either).

5. What should I wear to salsa class?

We suggest casual clothes, and shoes that will stay on (no flip-flops or other backless shoes), sneakers are ok if they don't grip the floor too much. Please be aware that good hygiene is important when coming in close contact with others. If you come to the All Levels Salsa Workshop 8pm Thursday it’s a good ideal to dress to impress.

6. How much are private lessons?

Private lessons are available if classes are moving too slow or fast for you. Private lessons are $75/hour (for single or a couple). Contact us at 303-433-1796 or 303-517-5043 to schedule.

7. On “1” or “2”??

Dancing on “1” or “2” refers to when your feet separate either on the first count or the second count of the musical phrase. We teach on “1” because it is the easiest for people to identify when listening to music and also it is the way the majority of people dance Salsa in Denver. Private lessons are available if you would like to learn to dance Salsa on “2”.

Is that all there is?

Advanced/Beginner and Intermediate students are encouraged to join our Dance Team. Through choreography and performance students can improve their technique and styling rapidly. We also invite all of our students to join us for “Get Your Sexy” All levels Salsa/Bachata Workshop every Thursdays 8:00 pm at La Rumba for a true salsa nightclub experience. $10 for an hour long class, cover charge, 1/2 hour class at 9:30pm & open dancing until 2am. (This Workshop is not included with our unlimited class card). To become a great social dancer you have to get out and dance socially!
