What we're about

Do you love dancing or looking to learn a new style of dance?During the week we have you covered with classes, training teams, and fun! We service the greater-DFW area, so no matter where you are, we have a group class nearby so you can join the fun! But that's not all; we go to local festivals, outdoor events, host house parties, and take road trips together as well!

Our Mission: To share the rich backgrounds of those of Afro- and Latinx descent; highlighting the significant contributions that have been made to culture, language, and history through the unifying power of music and dance.

We are passionate about the history, culture, language, and the dances of Afro- or Latin countries. Having traveled to over 20 countries in Central America, South America, and the Caribbean, PVALD instructors have the goal of bringing the experience, knowledge, and culture of the greater Afro-Latin Diaspora to you! At Pura Vida, we focus on concepts, not patterns and on history and cultural respect, not movement assimilation.

Group Classes: At Pura Vida we offer weekly group classes for Salsa, Bachata, and Kizomba. All our classes are “beginner friendly” - we meet you at your level and focus on the areas you need the most help with. With the group class experience, you’re guaranteed to get high quality instruction, but with the opportunity to meet new people and practice those hot moves with new friends! Group classes are a great option for those new to the area, a unique date night, or even for those looking for a fun way to exercise and get fit!

Walk-ins are always welcomed in our classes; the drop-in rate is $15 or $10 per class with a Monthly Pass. You can purchase classes and monthly passes in advanced on our site or pay with cash/card in class. https://www.puravidaald.com/ .

No Partner Necessary. Dress comfortably, casual wear or work out clothes. Comfortable shoes - low heels for women, flats like Toms are okay, sneakers are ok but not recommended.

Private Instruction: Want to super-charge your dance experience? Our private lessons are designed to focus on YOU and YOUR dance needs, and the session moves at YOUR pace! Whether you’re looking to move quicker than the pace of the group classes, looking to catch up to where other students are, or just prefer to learn at your own pace in a more private setting, these classes focus on individual attention to maximize your growth. If you’re not where you want to be in your dance journey, schedule your private today!
