Essential Information about our Salsa Dance classes
Adele teaches adult Salsa dance classes generally in blocks of 6 to 8 weeks (by the Half Terms).
Courses require an up front payment for the whole course on Week 1 or before with pre-booking through this website. Pre-booking is required because we will be limiting the class to smaller numbers to help with the learning experience.
Payment terms are always stated on each advert or class listing.
Our Salsa classes are 'social' dance classes. Which means we switch partners regularly throughout the class. Even if you attend with a friend or partner you will switch with other students. This helps Leaders and Followers to learn faster by understanding how to Lead or Follow with other people and creates a richer learning experience. IF you are not comfortable with switching partners then we would recommend a non social dance class such as a 'partners only' ballroom dance class.
You can also repeat a course as many times as you like in order to feel more confident before moving on. In fact Adele recommends repeating courses especially in the Improvers & Intermediate levels.
You can only move on to the Advanced level by invitation - this is due to the nature of the partnerwork involved, which can be dangerous if you are not completely competent at the Intermediate levels.
