ABOUT US AND OUR CLASSES  

"Dance- the most fun you can have standing up with your clothes on."

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 thousands of students to dance Salsa, Bachata and other Latin dances. Coached students for Student Showcases and Dance Teams for over 25 years and have taught at La Rumba for 23 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. Our goal is to give students the tools to be a good social dancer and have fun on the dance floor!

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. $15/class at La Rumba. 
No pre-registration.
Come to La Rumba Thurs. -Sun. to practice the material
presented in class.
Join us the 2nd Saturday each month 8p for

On a Personal note...

We met in a dance class 31 years ago.

Not everyone will find love in a dance class, but in this age of dating apps and social isolation, social dancing is maybe the best skill you can learn to meet and connect with other people. There are very few situations in our society (other than the doctors office) where it's appropriate to put your hands on a total stranger. In social dancing it's not only appropriate, but expected and isn't that what people really want. Connection with another human being in the physical world on the dance floor rather than swiping left or right in the virtual world. In class we change partners so everyone has a chance to dance, improve their leading and following skills (a little like speed dating) have a chance to make new friends.
We are happy that you are coming to us to learn a new skill that can bring you joy for a lifetime and who knows maybe you might find love...
