We have classes for all levels but our lovely beginners in both Salsa and Bachata get special courses just for them.
IMPORTANT! We’re delighted to be able to reopen normally, but we want to make you all as safe as possible. As the government has stopped providing free Lateral Flow tests, we can no longer insist upon testing to attend. However we would ask that everyone is sensible and does not attend if they have any viral symptoms.
If you have booked and are unable to attend because of testing positive, we will give you a credit for a future class.
Other measures include:
- If you come with a partner you can choose not to rotate partners
- You may wear a mask if you wish
- We encourage frequent hand sanitisation / washing
- We have good ventilation at the TLC studio
- Our new format means fewer people will be attending at the same time so it will be less crowded
- Online booking or card payments on the door avoids handling cash
We pride ourselves on providing a really friendly, caring and sociable atmosphere, whilst delivering excellent teaching of the fundamentals of technique. If you are coming on your own, the hardest thing will be walking through the door, but as our classes are hosted at Tracie’s Latin Club, we give you a warm TLC welcome and you’ll feel right at home after that. We feel it is essential to master the basics in order to be able to dance socially, and we therefore offer a 6 week course for beginners (Level 1). Don’t panic about starting, as we assume you know nothing about dance, and with our wonderful teachers we can cure anyone with ‘2 left feet’ syndrome!
No partner is necessary as we rotate partners in all our dance classes, which helps you meet new friends and makes a lovely warm and friendly vibe. Fear not – there are no exams and you will have sooooo much fun – guaranteed! Take the chance, it might just change your life!

Next Course Start Dates:
Salsa: Thursday 14 July, Wednesday 3 August, Thursday 25 August, Wednesday 14 September
Bachata: Thursday 14 July, Thursday 25 August
We have salsa classes on both Wednesdays and Thursdays, and the start dates for the 6 week Beginner courses are on a rolling basis throughout the year, being offset by 3 weeks between a Wednesday or a Thursday. This way, if you miss one, you only have to wait 3 weeks to get you started on the next course. This also means that the courses do not run in parallel, so unfortunately you cannot transfer easily between the Wednesday or Thursday course.
Our discounted 6 week courses are great value and taught by our fantastic team of experienced teachers. Each lesson is 1 hour and starts at 7.30pm. After the class has finished, there is 15 minutes of social dancing / practice time included after the class. Doors open for registration at 7.10pm with a warm up at 7.25pm. All weekly salsa classes are held at the fantastic studio at Tracie’s Latin Club.
Unfortunately we don’t have the facility for a taster class within our class timetable at Salsa Southampton. However, if you want to try Salsa before you book a course, Tracie’s Latin Club hosts some Salsa Party Nights which offer taster classes for beginners, or you can get started with our online beginners course.
Please click on the button above to see forthcoming course dates, book your place and start your Salsa journey with us. Our courses are very popular and are usually full before the start date, so book now and make a change to your life! As we need an even ratio of ladies to men for the course to be most effective, course tickets are separated into men and ladies – but please be assured you do not need to bring a partner. If you are booking as a couple, please buy one ticket for a lady and a separate ticket for a man.
We have 6 week bachata courses for beginners on Thursdays.
Our discounted 6 week courses are great value and taught by our fantastic team of experienced teachers. Each lesson is 1 hour and starts at 8.45pm. After the class has finished, there is social dancing / practice time included after the class. There are Salsa classes beforehand from 7.30-8.30pm with a mini-social. Some people attend both Salsa & Bachata classes, but if you are only attending the Bachata course, the best time to arrive for registration would be between 8.30-8.45pm. All weekly classes are held at the fantastic studio at Tracie’s Latin Club.
