About Salsa Classes Cali

We are a community of independent dance instructors in Cali. Based in the world capital of salsa, we have dancers to suit all levels, and styles of dance. Salsa: Colombian, on-1, on-2, Cuban. Bachata. Kizomba. And more! Our goal is to help you find and learn with the best dance instructors in Cali through private, one-on-one instruction. Classes can be done at home or in one of several of our local studios, while saving the costs of not going through a dance school.


Our Instructors are a handpicked group of the highest quality dance professionals in Cali. Many are competing in national and international levels, and all are vetted by their peers for professionalism, personality, and of course high expertise in dance instruction!


The Community was started in fall 2017 in Cali after having begun initially in Medellin, Colombia in summer 2017. The community was started by a small group of students and instructors who thought both sides would heavily benefit from connecting with each other! We are based in the San Antonio, Cali.


Our Students are both complete newbies to dance, as well as experienced competitive dancers looking to leve-lup their dancing. The main theme is people to come to us to fast track their dance education with the highest quality, private classes you can get in Colombia.

How it works

In this video, our community member Lucia gives a short introduction on the purpose of our community. If you would like to schedule a class with her or any of the other instructors, simply talk to us on Facebook Messenger

Are you just starting with salsa dancing?

We know it can be scary, and we're hear to let you know we've got your back!

A one-on-one class with a patient teacher helps create a friendly, non-judgemental environment for practicing. Our instructors are accustomed to teaching foreigners with little or no dance experience, and have collectively learned the best practices and teaching methods. At the same time, being pro dancers, they bring with them an impressive knowledge and understanding of the dance, music, and culture of salsa to share with you.

Learning from an independent instructor instead of at a traditional dance school allows you to develop a personal relationship without Big Brother controlling your relationship. It is very common for our instructors to take out their students social dancing to try out their new moves in dance clubs! As Cali locals, our instructors are able to recommend the best events, the right club at the right night etc. And if they don’t, do not hesitate to ask us directly via Facebook!

Love from our students

  • Hannah Brown

    I have taken 50 hours of private Salsa and Bachata classes over 2 months with Salsa Classes Medellin, and I loved every second of it 🙂

  • Hannah Brown

    I have been beyond impressed. The concept is fantastic; as a student you save money and the teachers themselves make a fairer wage. The classes are absolutely private – in your own studio, with your own teacher, and with no need to change the music every five minutes!

    – Rebecca from London, via Google Review

  • Hannah Brown

    Amazing! It’s easy to set up classes, the teachers come to your neighborhood, and everyone seems to be super responsive and organized. Plus, I had a blast learning to salsa, despite my awkward, can’t-dance self!

    – Sarah from USA, via Google review

  • Hannah Brown

    I took some bachata, Cali-style salsa, and On2 salsa classes. Quality of all the instructors was very high
