...Bridging the Gap Between Music & Dance
Q: How often do salsa sessions run?
A: Our salsa sessions run in monthly blocks. New sessions start the on the 1st of every month, or the first day of classes after. The last class of every session is dedicated to social dancing so that students can practice what they've learned through the course of the month and receive feedback from our instructors
Q: How do I know what level to sign up for?
A: If you're new to salsa, or don't know a cross body lead, inside turn, and outside turn, start with our Level 1 Intro session. If you know these moves, but are an on 1 dancer, then contact us about our next transitional class. If you dance on 2 and have been dancing a few years or have trained in other schools, Contact Us to find out when our next Free Placement Evaluations will be taking place.
Q:Do you accept Drop Ins?
A: Drop ins are allowed at any time for Salsa Levels 2 to 6, Modern Jazz, and Core & Stretch Classes. Please Contact Us before dropping in for our salsa classes to schedule an evaluation.
Drop ins are NOT allowed for our Level 1 Intro salsa sessions in an effort to maintain growth within the session and allow lessons to build. However, we do allow late registrations for Level 1 intro classes up until the 3rd day of the session, or later if student is willing to take private lessons to catch up to missed material. Contact Us for more information.
Q: I found out about your current session too late. Can I still sign up?
A: Late registrations are allowed for all classes except Level 1, which has a registration cap at the 3rd day of class. Please refer to answer about drop ins.
Q: What ages do you take?
A: All Levels! The average age range is 25-30, but student age typically ranges anywhere from 16-50.

A: Casual and Comfortable. We recommend ladies not wear skirts or dresses as we sometimes do floor exercises or leg raises. No street shoes are allowed in the studios. Any dance shoes with suede bottoms or rubber soles are ok. Don't have dance shoes? Read the question below.
Q: I don't have dance shoes. Do I need some to start?
A: If you don't have dance shoes, now is the time to buy! You wouldn't start tennis without buying the racket and ball would you? If you plan to start dancing, start it right from the beginning! Visit our store for men's and ladies' shoes to buy yours today. www.MasacoteShoes.com . We also have inventory stock of Burju Ladies' shoes (these are the Nike shoes of Salsa) that you can choose from in person or try on for size.
