A community of independent dance teachers in San Francisco, Salsa Classes San Francisco is made up of professional dancers of salsa, bachata, kizomba, zouk, and more. We help you connect to the best independent dance teachers in San Francisco for private classes. You save the costs in going to a dance school while getting the highest quality private instruction from home or from one of our several local partner studios.
Our Teachers are hand selected dance professionals in San Francisco. Several are competing on national and international levels, and are chosen by their peers for their professionalism, personality, and expertise in dance instruction.
The Community was started in winter 2018 in San Francisco after having begun initially in Medellin, Colombia in summer 2017. We began as a small group of students and instructors who believed both sides would benefit immensely from connecting with each other! Our administrative office is based in the Mission District.
Our Students are both beginners and experienced competitive dancers looking to level-up their dancing. Dancers come to us to fast track their dance education through private instruction with a diverse, curated group of professional dance instructors.
In the following video, Lucia, dance pro from Cali Colombia, gives a short introduction to our community. If you would like to schedule a class with instructors like her, just message us on Facebook Messenger
Salsa Classes San Francisco matches you with independent local teachers on Facebook, offering several advantages over learning at a traditional dance school.
Vetted teachers. Our community is made up of only the most qualified dance instructors in San Francisco. We go out of our way to rigorously vet all new teachers joining our community based on teaching experience, dance skill, attitude, and professionalism.
Quick process. Send us a message on Facebook, tell us what you are looking for using our automated menu, and listo, we'll set you up the best available teacher who will reach out immediately for your first class.
Handpicked instructors. We select the most appropriate teachers for you based on your profile and needs (Level, Budget, Gender preference, and more).
Economical. Traditional dance schools need to cover the costs of their property and operations. Since we work independently, everything costs less and you save the difference.
Support local dancers!With us, dance instructors make at least 2x more than what they receive in a dance school, can teach in the way they want to, and have the flexibility in their schedules to continue training and competing. Support dance community!

We've all been there. The first dance class. The first time dancing with someone in a club. It can be nerve-racking! We want you to know we got your back!
Learning with an independent teacher in a private class allows you to build a comfortable, trusting relationship where your learning is the highest priority. And once you are part of our community, we will help you integrate into the larger salsa community for events, group workshops, and of course social dancing.
Learning from an independent helps the student develop a personal relationship with his / her instructor. It is very common for our instructors to take out their students social dancing to test their new moves on the field! Being locals, the 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 Messenger!Learn More Get Started
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 🙂
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!
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!
I took some bachata, Cali-style salsa, and On2 salsa classes. Quality of all the instructors was very high
