Sweet Salsa teaching at Salsa Fix June 2016

Salsa Fix Hindley, Wigan

Julia and Steve from Sweet Salsa have been invited by Gillian at Salsa Fix to teach a class prior to the party on June 17th 2016.

We are planning a fun Rueda style class which will be approximately Improver level.

If you've never done rueda before, come along and start to learn this progressive, almost barn dance, style of salsa.

Rueda is a traditional form of salsa that is danced all over Cuba and is a great way of meeting other dancers.

We both hope to see as many people as possible and look forward to a great evening of dancing.

Beginner Courses Restart June 7th 2016

Beginner salsa classes June 2016

Our popular six-week beginner courses restart just after Whitsun on the second week of June at our usual venues.

June 7th at Clitheroe, June 8th at Fulwood and June 9th at Samlesbury.

If you are nervous about starting (almost everyone is at first) you will find a warm welcome at your first class and will soon make lots of new friends.

And you never know, it might just change your life.

A Great Day Learning Bachata with Felipe

The bachata gang. April 2016

It was a great (and full) day of learning Dominican style bachata on Saturday April 23rd 2016.

Julia and Steve kicked off the morning with a run-through of lots of basic Dominican style steps to get everone warmed up for the main event in the afternoon.

After lunch Felipe really cranked up the speed and made us work - explaining that when students pay good money to attend it is necessary to introduce them to new things. He also pointed out that it is not necessary to learn everything all at once but to take away a few new techniques and to practice and develop these later.

Bachata Classes 8-9pm first week in March 2016

For all our venues on March 1st, 2nd and 3rd - at all our classes we are having a one-off week of bachata for the first hour 8pm to 9pm

If you'd like to learn this sensual dance come along on any of those dates. They'll be combined classes for all beginners and improvers.

9.15pm to 10pm is salsa as normal. If it is ever 'normal', that is.

If you've never done Bachata - it's a close hold dance from the Dominican Republic and is relatively easy to pick up the basics.

These will be fun nights so come along if you are free.
