Welcome to University of Exeter Salsa Society!
We run high quality Salsa classes for students, staff and members of the public of all levels. We provide fantastic opportunities to learn, refine, and enjoy social dancing in Salsa, Bachata and other dances.
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.
Join us for our beginner's online salsa classes in Freshers' week! Check out the events for Thursday 17th at 2pm and Saturday 19th at 4pm!
During university term time our weekly salsa classes run on tuesdays. Not sure if you'll like it? Come and give it a go - all classes are FREE during September. After that your first beginners class will still be free! Due to the constantly changing university measures against COVID, we cannot establish yet whether we will be able to run salsa classes in person during term one. However, we will run salsa classes online at the beginning of term one. Take a look at the schedule below to get an idea of the classes we offer on 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 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!
-- Workshop - 8.00pm - Open to all levels! Check with us first if you haven't come before! A workshop giving you a taster in a different style of dance, such as Rueda de Casino, On2 Salsa, Boogaloo, Merengue or Cha Cha Cha! Workshop offered during September: Moving to Improvers.
-- Improvers - 8.45pm - Here you'll learn a new short routine each week, which you can incorporate into your social dancing - it's in improvers where you'll really see yourself improve leaps and bounds! (this session will not be run for the first few weeks in term one)
Prices for lessons with us: FREE during all September! :)
Last year after classes on Tuesdays, we used to head to Tuesday Timepiece Salsa to put our new skills into practice, and help each other with our social dancing. We hope that we will be able to do this in the near future! Check our Facebook page on the day for our current times and the class location, for exciting news and to keep updated with the world of social Latin dancing at our University.
- We will keep you updated here and in Facebook about any University updates regarding new covid-safe practices that would enable us to return to campus and dance salsa safely.
