Salseros y Salseras,

Come along to our fun, relaxed and friendly Salsa sessions!

All experience levels are welcome, as many great dance memories begin right here. In fact most of our current social dancers hadn't actually danced salsa before joining the society.

You can join on your own, with a partner, or with your group of friends.

 

 

Why dance Salsa?

- Improves your physical health and fitness

- Improves balance, coordination, posture and movement memory

- Combats stress and boosts self-confidence

- Widens your social circle and makes you part of a big family

- Salsa is a global movement, it is danced socially in clubs all over the world

 

In terms of dance style, we are doing Salsa LA (Los Angeles or Cross Body or On1) and we are focusing on footwork, turn patterns, partner work, styling and musicality, various combinations of moves, all these in order to create your own dance style and have the confidence to dance on any salsa floor in this world.

In addition, we also introduce dancing styles such as Bachata, Rueda de Casino, Kizomba, Cha Cha Cha and others!

 

Did you know? After being formed in 2009, the LSU Salsa Society was nominated for the best new society.

 

Help us continue building this great community of salseros and salseras that grows bigger and better every year. 

So if you want to get taste of salsa and want to do something new and exciting, come give it a try!

The more you learn the better it gets and you will not be disappointed.

See you on the dance floor! :)

Taster Sessions

The taster sessions are for free and all about getting a taste of what salsa is all about!
This year there will be two tester sessions  in the form of basic lessons followed by socializing games!

Monday 1st October, Room 1, Students' Union Building from 7PM until 10PM

Monday 8th October, Fusion, Students' Union Building from 8PM until 11PM

 

If you cannot manage to attend any of the free sessions, you can still come to one of our regular sessions later, to get an insight into our fun activities. You will get to know the committee and meet a lot of interesting salseros and salseras, while learning individual steps and partner work.
