  • I don't have a partner - Is that a problem? No, absolutely not. Everyone is welcome. Whether you come along as a single woman or a single man you will get a great deal from attending our classes. We rotate partners very regularly during lessons so everyone dances with everyone else. We guarantee that you will soon meet new friends.

  • I'm nervous about learning a new skill - That's normal? Even skilled dancers started right were you are now and were probably nervous at first. We teach in a very informal way and there is no pressure to get things right. We prefer that you just have fun...

  • I have two left feet. Can I learn to dance? - Don't worry. You just THINK you can't dance! Follow our simple steps and you will soon be able to put together a simple routine that will look great.

  • How soon will I be able to dance like those people I see on the dance floor? - We are dance teachers, not magicians.. Seriously, it takes each individual a different length of time to become comfortable with dancing salsa. One thing you will find is that you will have a big smile on your face while you learn.

  • Will I be at a disadvantage if I miss some weeks? - No, because we have an structure for each lessons and if you miss a class or two; you can always come to our replacement classes (there are 3 or 4 a month on different dates and times) so you can review and practice what you have missed. 

  • Do I need to book to start? - Yes. Just turn up to our prior Free Trial Class and register or send us a message to +606 3663993 and confirm which date and time you are coming to start with us.

  • Is it just lessons?. - No, we have social dancing session some days when the teaching is over (please look in our schedule as every month is on different days). We encourage everyone to stay after lessons to practice what you have learned. Pat Calzadilla happy to assist all students who stay for the social dancing after lessons. We also organize 1 or 2 studio parties every month for all the students to meet and practice together.

  • What do I wear? - Anything light and comfortable (avoid long skirts). Dance shoes are helpful but not essential though you should not wear trainers or shoes that are heavy or have grip as you might need to spin on one foot. 

  • What age group is catered for? - Classes are for adolescent and adults only and the ages will range from 12 to 80.

  • Is Cuban Salsa different to ordinary Salsa? - Most local classes in this area teach a style called 'cross body' or Los Angeles (L.A.) salsa dancing. This is a quite upright and precise style where the dancers change places from one side to the other during the dance. It also involves multiple spins for the ladies. Cuban style is a bit more relaxed and the couple dance in a constant circular motion around each other. In our opinion Cuban style is a bit more fun and allows more freedom on the dance floor. In RITMO LATINO Dance School we teach both styles together as we like to mixed up and make Salsa dancing more challenging and fun.

  • I'm very nervous about joining a new group and being among more experienced dancers - Our beginners courses have a tailored syllabus ideal for people like you - a six week beginners salsa course which includes L.A. and Cuban style where you will learn the basics in a more leisurely manner.
