We are CRAZY about Salsa and Bachata and want our students to become passionate too!
With over 30 years of dance and performance experience, we have taught salsa and coached students for Student Showcases and Dance Teams for 20 years. We are former members of Rafael Ayure's SALSA CALIENTE dance company and have performed locally and at the L.A. and Puerto Rico Salsa Congresses numerous times.
We have 3 levels of Salsa and 2 levels of Bachata classes. Students will get a solid foundation in lead and follow technique, footwork, styling and musicality in both Salsa and Bachata .It’s important that students master the material presented in each level before moving on to the next level. We encourage students to repeat classes as needed to reenforce the elements taught in class. Classes are progressive thru out the month building on the elements presented each week. New sessions start every month. We average 15 - 30 students in class. No partner necessary as we rotate students so everyone has a chance to dance. Feel free to drop-in. $15/class. No pre-registration. See you on the dance floor! Cash, check or credit at La Rumba.
All of our classes are held at La Rumba Nightclub 99 W. 9th Ave. Denver CO 80204. Free parking in the lot at 9th Ave. & Broadway after 6pm. 303-517-5043, 303-433-1796 or [email protected] for more info.
Dance is a physical activity that can be taxing and can sometimes result in injury. We expect all students to act responsibly and conduct themselves in a safe manner. Every student is responsible for any and all cost and damages incurred as a result of any injury sustained in class and agree not to hold Jig and Senora or La Rumba liable in any way for that injury or loss of property.
