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 social dancers never acutally danced or heard about 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.
