Sundays and Mondays…

Sunday and Mondays are best to find a local bar that has salsa music and go with your partner or friends to dance.  There isn’t a great social dancing option for these days…yet :).  Of course you could take some time off from social dancing and take some classes with us!  Book with us on Facebook Messenger.
