What is Latin dance?

As a general rule Latin dancing stays on the spot and rotates, as opposed to Ballroom that travels around the floor. (read more here about the difference between latin and ballroom)

Latin dance is typically made up of lots of spin patterns. Although Latin dance is often described and thought of as having ‘lots of hip movement’ this is completely dependant on the dancer. You can add as much or as little hip movement as you like.

What music can I dance salsa and Latin to?

Salsa is more versatile than people think… Salsa is typically danced to ‘salsa’ music which is Latino with lots of percussion and lyrics generally in Spanish. However the salsa style of dance and movement also fits well to a lot of hip hop, R’nb and pop music. In fact, we have a whole blog about it here.

Latin dance classes at QuickSteps

You’ll master Salsa & Latin at QuickSteps in 3 ways.

Group Classes: Anywhere from 4-40 people with 1 or 2 teachers running the class. Teachers will teach 2 to 3 steps per class. Members generally change partners throughout the class. If you don’t want to swap partners, and stay with your partner, that’s cool too. We have a system called ‘couplesville’ that keeps you together. For solo dancers, group classes is the best way to meet new people in the Latin dance community. Want more information about coming in without a partner? Read our blog Do I need a partner

Private lessons: You’ll want some private lessons too. This is where you get a teacher all to yourself and they plan a class to exactly what you need. We estimate 1 private lesson is equal to 5 group classes. QuickSteps members start with one free no-obligation private

Workshops are held 3 months here in Adelaide either with local, interstate or international teachers. They are long 1-2 hour classes held back to back over a couple of days. So much fun and brilliant for your dancing! Read about Salsa Sensation

How can I become a good Salsa & Latin dancer?


Practice in the studio

Maybe you’ve been to a Latin night and want to swirl and twirl with the best of them? Anyone can do it, but there’s no silver bullet. It takes practice practice and more practice. A combination of group classes and private lessons is always best. If you’re time poor the ’24/7′ is a good rule of thumb. Learn something new with your teacher. Revise it in detail 24 hours later. Then revise it again 7 days later.


Practice in the club

You can attend as many group classes, workshops, private lessons as you want, but the only way you’ll become confident and smooth is regularly going out to Salsa & Latin dancing at clubs. Learn by doing! For most dancers this is a bit scary the first time, but everyone started from nothing – so get out on the dance floor and give it a go! There are so many opportunities in Adelaide to use your Latin dancing. Here’s a few ideas
