We pride ourselves on providing a really friendly, caring and sociable atmosphere, whilst delivering excellent teaching of the fundamentals of salsa 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 the ‘2 left feet’ syndrome! No partner is necessary as we rotate partners, 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!

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 – as shown on the left panel. 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.
As an Absolute Beginner, you can either sign up for a whole 6 week course which is great value for money. Each lesson is 90 minutes and after the class has finished, there is 75 minutes of social dancing / practice time included after the class. All weekly salsa classes start at 8.15pm and 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.
Please click on the enrol button below to book your place and start your Salsa journey with us. Our courses are very popular and are always 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.
Our standard drop-in classes are £8 each (concessions £5), so the course effectively gives you one FREE class. The concession price is for NUS and those from the Isle of Wight. You will need to produce a valid NUS or student card, ferry ticket, or proof of address on the door. Enrolment needs to be paid for before the start date of the course to secure your place.
Vouchers for a course may be purchased as a present and are valid for a year from the date of purchase. They can be redeemed to start at the beginning of any of our courses, subject to booking availability.
