Salsa is a sexy, energetic, and fast Latin social dance, which has become hugely popular around the world. It's an amalgamation of Cuban dances popular in Havana in the 1950s and American jazz dances.


Salsa dance socials are common in nightclubs, bars, ballrooms, and outdoor festivals, making it a useful dance to learn for anyone who wants to dance socially. It's a fun dance to learn with a date, with a friend, or on your own so you're ready for a night on the town.

Ways to Learn Salsa at Arete Dance Center

We offer an all-level salsa/bachata class on Sundays, with no partner or pre-registration required - just drop by any weeks you want! This class will focus on bachata one month, salsa the next month, and keep switching back and forth. You can tell which dance we're teaching this month on our calendar.


Alternatively, many of our professional instructors are skilled in salsa and are available to teach it to you during private dance lessons. This is a great option because we can work on your specific goals and desires, and adapt everything to your level. Whether you've never danced before or are an experienced salsa dancer, our instructors are ready to take you to the next level with your dancing.
