Course levels

Absolute Beginner Level: You will learn essential Salsa steps, in a relaxed and enjoyable environment. You’ll experience rotating partners, work on confidence and dancing technique, whilst being challenged (just enough) to push yourself further and wanting to learn more. No Prior dancing experience required. After completing this level, if you are in any doubt as to whether you are ready to go to the next level don’t hesitate to ask your instructor as we are well aware that some people are able to progress more quickly, and some like to take longer in order to perfect their basics and there is no shame in repeating this level couple of times as it will definitely make you a better dancer in the long run. Lots of our students repeat this level a few times before moving on to the next level.

Improver Level: In order to take our Improver level classes you will need to be comfortable and confident with all of the moves and techniques taught at our Absolute Beginners’ classes. You need to be able to do the basic leading/following without having to think too much about your feet.  We use and adapt the moves you already know, whilst adding in new ones as well, to build interesting moves and turn patterns that can be used whilst dancing. Our emphasis is strongly on technique while teaching you moves that are leadable and followable so that you are able to get out onto the dance floor and dance them with fellow Salseros & Salseras. This is the level where we sincerely request our students to stay for at least 3 months before moving to the next level. Those who have learnt their basics elsewhere can enrol in this level provided they have been dancing continuously for two months and are well versed in the basic moves of salsa.

Intermediate Level: This is the level for you if you are comfortable leading/following the moves taught at Improver level, with good technique, and you are happily dancing socially at parties. You will be expected to have a higher level of understanding and skill. You will not benefit from joining an Intermediate class if you are not ready!  This level helps to increase dance confidence while learning new moves. It provides extended practice of Cross-Body Lead style, whilst learning a range of more complicated moves & techniques. To enrol at this level, the participant must have attended our Salsa Absolute Beginner and Improver level classes or at least completed 4-5 months course at another school or has been dancing continuously for 3-4 months at least. This is the level where we sincerely request our students to stay for at least 3-4 months or more.

Advanced Level: Requires significant experience. It’s certainly not for beginners or improvers. Ideally, this is the level for those who have already completed our beginner, improver and intermediate classes or at least completed 6-8 months or more of salsa training at another school or has been dancing continuously for 6-8 months. Here more complex moves will be taught thus adding to your existing repertoire! But don’t sweat it because you’re not expected to be perfect either so don’t worry. This is the level where we sincerely request our students to stay for at least 3-4 months or as much as you like after the first 3-4 months

No partner? No worries. Dance With Style’s graceful rotation, embedded into the routines, ensures no one is left dancing alone. But if you do have a partner then they are most welcome to join our workshops too coz the more the merrier. 

CHOOSE THE COURSES YOU WANT TO TAKE – We welcome all adults, couples, singles and teens to join our classes and we guarantee you loads of fun while learning a new dance form with proper technique! Our classes are open to all age groups starting from the age of 13 and above for our Salsa Classes and Bachata Classes!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR – Come along wearing anything you feel comfortable in. Office wear is fine too if you are coming straight from work. Smart ‘n’ Casual for men. The sky’s the limit as far choices go for women! As far as shoes are concerned, wear anything that is comfortable to you and allows you to move and spin.

Sports shoes/Sneakers are not recommended as they are designed to grip the floor and not conducive for dancing. But if you still want to wear them then it’s up to you. Any shoes which may scratch the dance floor is NOT ALLOWED.

You may also dance barefoot or with your socks only if you want. Flip flops are a NO too! Ladies are encouraged to wear heels/stilettos if they want but please make sure that the heels don’t scratch or damage the dance floor.
