Adolfo & Tania workshop – Orquesta Sonora La Habana – En El Barrio


Learning Salsa is a great way to socialize or even learn something new with your partner and have fun while doing it. Some people might consider whether they should start to learn by themselves through online teaching materials first, to save money. Or, should they go straight to register to local Salsa dance class lessons. Yep, that’s it. To be able to learn Salsa may take some time but the first step is to join a class. Salsa dance class lessons can either be online or at a physical location.

Many people said it’s good to learn online, many said don’t. Well, you’d better to not listen to either side. 😀 Why? Because it totally depends on each person condition such as financial, location, etc. However, for this post, we will list a couple of reference points for your own decisions. We are not going to convince you to choose which one is better. We are also having a good series about this matter, later on. The series will not be very friendly with most of the independent people teaching at clubs … to be honest.

Joining offline Salsa dance class lessons

Joining Salsa dance class lessons has become very easy because many schools are offering dance classes irrespective of gender or age. These classes will be either at a club or an establishment. These venues mostly run by trained Salsa dancers. Yet, you will have more chances to learn with experienced Salsa teachers in established locations that in clubs. Because in clubs, there might be people who like to dance Salsa and they want to share to teach others very simple things. Their skill levels should be good or bad, it depends.
