Individual / Couple Retreats

Private retreats are for people who want to come and do their own thing. Whether you come by yourself, or with your dance partner, this retreat is custom made for your needs. You can come for as long as you want, though with most people staying between 2 - 8 weeks. You can also stay in just one city or move around. We are in Medellin, Cali, and Cartagena. All Levels Welcome.

Don't worry, this sample day is only an example and you don't have to wake up at 8am if you feel like staying in bed 🙂

  • 8am. Wake up to the beautiful sunrise in Medellin and have a famous Colombia coffee, arepas, and a tinto (our famous coffee).

  • 10am. Have your first class with Sergio, Colombian champion salsa dancer from your apartment, focusing on new salsa moves in the “on-1” style.

  • 1pm. Grab a delicious lunch at our favorite vegetarian restaurant, Verdeo. Then take a walk around the beautiful parque presidenta, read a chapter in the Gabriel Garcia Marquez book you just picked up

  • 2pm. Second salsa class of the day, this time with Marcela, another champion salsa dancer this time focusing on body work and styling in “on-1” style

  • 9pm Meet up with the Salsa Classes Medellin crew for dinner and then a night of dancing at the local hotspots like Tibiri and Son Havana.

Medellin

our-process-image

Medellin’s pleasant climate gives the city its nickname – the City of Eternal Spring – with fresh flowers sprinkled throughout the cityscape. Don’t be fooled by its pleasantness - the salsa scene is hot here, being home to several of Colombia’s most accomplished dancers and storied salsa clubs. And with the latest peace deal, Medellin has never been safer

Cali

our-process-image

Colombia's third largest city, Santiago de Cali, aka Cali, is famous for its tropical party vibe, beautiful smiling people and sizzling nightlife. Here, salsa is in the water. Take a cab, sip your coffee, or just walk past any open window and you'll hear flavorful salsa music blaring out. Not only is Colombia known as the salsa capital of the world, but Cali is the capital city

Cartagena

our-process-image

Cartagena de Indias, aka Cartagena, is the darling of the Caribbean coast, a romantic UNESCO historic city who’s old town is surrounded by colonial stone walls, and lined with a labyrinth of cobblestone streets, vibrantly painted residences, and leafy plazas. Closeby are several beaches and islands to cool off in after dancing. What more could you ask for?

Group Bootcamps

We curate a group of people excited to let loose, dance, and have a great time! Join us for a 2 Week or 4 Week retreats. Groups Bootcamps offer personalized dance instruction just like Individual and Couple Bootcamps, the only difference is a fixed duration and a more social experience. All Levels Welcome.

What the students say

  • 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 🙂

    – Wei Jun from Malaysia, via Google review

  • 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
