What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in Salsa classes, social dancing, and getting fit whilst having fun! The main focus will be on Salsa dancing, but there will also be other dances like Bachata dancing too. It's all about making new friends, meeting new people, and learning something new at the same time. Plus it's great fun, and helps towards maintaining a fit and healthy lifestyle for your body and mind. We meet every Tuesday evening in Chelmsford, at Hamptons Sports & Leisure just off Beehive Lane. We've been doing so for over 15 years, and everyone who dances salsa in Essex will have been a regular to our classes at some point. All skill levels are welcome, in particular, beginners, who are encouraged to come along and meet with similar people who also turn up on their own and all join in with learning something new and having fun. We have people from all walks of life in our group. All our members are keen to share their passion of Salsa with beginners, and we encourage everyone to participate in helping and inspiring new people to the world of Salsa dancing, introducing them to a social dance which is enjoyed all over the world. Maybe this will be the start of new travel opportunities too! We started this group to share our passion of Salsa, and other social dances, and meet new people. We'd welcome the opportunity to share it with you!
