Free Salsa in the Park (with Free Lessons) on Mondays in the South End


  • There will be FREE lessons being offered at two different times taught by MetaMovements staff.
  • Lessons for all levels on all floors: 6-6:30pm.
  • Then, party and dance to the best salsa music from 6:30-9pm with DJ Hernan and fantastic guests!
  • A great mix of classic and new salsa - and a little bachata too!
  • Additional lessons for Beginners on the back floors start at 7:15pm (party continues on the main floor).
  • Also, you won't want to miss the performances at 8:15pm

We take over the patio in front of the Blackstone Community Center, and it fills with[masked] salsa-lovers each week! There will be 2-3 dance floors available so there will be plenty of place to dance under the stars. Dance floors are provided by In case of rain, we move inside the community center.


Salsa in the Park is located in the Blackstone Community Center park at the corner of W. Brookline St., and Washington St, Boston (South End).

Look for the community center and the basketball courts, and we will be right next to them! (The fountain is visible from where we are, directly across W Brookline St from us.)

And if it rains, we'll be inside the Blackstone Community Center, right next to the park!

    The centre, teacher and crew were very friendly, organized and professional however I went to meet people but ended up on my own as no one at the desk knew what I was talking about when I said I was there for the meet up. Lesson was excellent and club looked good but I left as I didnt get to meet anyone:(

      Ann, sorry to have missed you. I was at both lessons, wearing a royal blue polo shirt and blue jeans. I'm sorry we didn't get to meet, but now that I see your little picture, I think I saw you at the second lesson.
