SALSA & STREET LATIN PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Adult Salsa & Street Latin Program at La Luna includes classes in SALSA, MERENGUE, BACHATA, and CHA CHA. Although, the majority of Salsa classes are taught in LA Style, which breaks forward on the 1st beat in the music, other styles, including Mambo and Casino Rueda, are taught in the Street Latin section of the program. Mambo is danced by breaking on the 2nd beat in Salsa music, while Casino Rueda is a popular style in Miami which is danced with a group formed in a circle.

Both Group and Private Lessons are available with a variety of instructors Sunday through Friday. Please check our CLASS CALENDAR to determine which days work best for you to take Salsa & Street Latin Group Classes. To schedule a PRIVATE LESSON, please call our main telephone number to check instructor availability. Salsa Practice Sessions are held daily from 9:30-10:30PM and are free for La Luna Active Members. SALSA FRIDAYS is the name of our Latin dance parties held on the 2nd & 4th Friday of every month. These parties are a great opportunity to meet new people and practice everything you're learning!
