What we're about


This group highlights social events and classes, by varying local Latin dance event producers/instructors, for all to feel welcome to join-in, develop their skills and have a great deal of fun! Whether you're absolutely brand new to Latin dance and have ten left feet, or are a total "dancing with the stars" champion, this group will make you feel right at home and continually movin' your hips to the intoxicating beats of Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia, Timba, Reggaeton, Tango and more!


All are welcome. That's a key emphasis of this group - to provide an atmosphere that is very social, non-judgemental and encouraging.
