Welcome to University of Exeter Salsa Society!
We run high quality Salsa and Bachata classes for Students, Staff and members of the public of all levels. We provide fantastic opportunities to learn, refine and enjoy social dancing, in both Salsa and Bachata.
It doesn't matter if you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro; a natural dancer or have two left feet - come and see what we're about, and learn to dance with us.
Our Salsa classes run Tuesdays and our Bachata classes run Fridays, both during university term time. Not sure if you'll like it? Come and give it a go - your first beginners class is free!
Usual Salsa class times and levels: Tuesdays
-- Beginners - 6.30pm - Come to this class if you haven't danced with us before. Our classes are drop in, so you can start any week during term! You'll need to dance beginners level twice to progress to technique classes. No partner or experience required!
-- Technique - 7.15pm - Complete at least 6 weeks of technique classes, where you'll learn the basic twists and turns of Salsa. After 6 consecutive weeks, ask us if you're ready for improvers!
