10 week block pass £35 or £5 per class weekly. Can join first 2 weeks only. Beginners class please come 10 to 15 min early to register & pay. Classes are progressive, Anyone welcome, no partner usually necessary as usually we change partners in the class, however this may be a difficulty if people don’t want to change partners due to Covid.  I think you need to wear a mask at present too and provide details for test and trace. Will update nearer the time if further issues as need an update from the venue to see if any cleaning required in between classes.  Please bring some hand sanitizer to do regularly.

Email – LQsalsadundee@gmail.com for places or more info. Please pass the word. All money raised for Azul Wasi project for former street children in Peru. Directions on www.salsadundee.com on class page. Please note : there is no car parking outside the deaf hub (may get a parking ticket), best to park on Brown street.

NOTE : Other 2 classes below are higher level classes and only open to those with experience, please contact teacher in advance to check level to join if new to Latin quarter classes. The class times are slightly reduced as need to collect test and trace details and may be other covid jobs to do in between classes. Please come 5 to 10 min early to register and pay. Will be class pass option of £20 for 6 classes or £4 per class.  
There will be options in classes for those who do not wish to change partners and for those who do hopefully but as this is all new we will have to assess partner situation each session if you do not come with one. 
Improvers / intermediate Cross body salsa 7.15 – 8pm 
Cuban salsa class 8.15 to 9.05pm.  This class will be Cuban partner work only NOT rueda initially.  Also if not enough couples this class may not run, will assess situation in first 2 weeks.  If class does not run thinking to do a Beginners Bachata fusion class instead and an occasional Cuban partnerwork or rueda class for those with experience already. 
Any queries please email LQsalsadundee@gmail.com





CANCELLED LATIN QUARTER Tuesday CLASSES & SOCIAL-20th March

15 03 2020
Given the recent change in situation with the Coronavirus, all Latin Quarter tuesday classes (and the Social on 20th March @ The Blackwatch) are cancelled until further notice. This coming week was the last week of the Bachata block so we had planned to do Dominican bachata footwork with no partner work next week to reduce the risks (and non partner footwork in all the 3 classes) but given that the situation has changed (although the government has not yet specified to stop classes) we have decided not to do this next week. We hope everyone stays safe. Will update when we have further guidance.
A further note : I am aware that I owe the people who bought a bachata pass £3.50 refund for the last class, so we will have to work out a way to give this, there are a few possibilities. I was going to start a new beginners salsa block after the Easter holidays from 21st April (ish) if the virus situation depicts can restart. Or I may recover the last bachata class before start these classes, whenever they will restart as could well have to wait until later, we are not sure yet of course. So people can save their passes from the Bachata fusion class to use either for another class in the future, or entry towards a future social, if anyone wants the refund let me know and I will try to get it to you. I will try to email the pass people about this in the next few days and give a few options.

BIG THANKS to EVERYONE who came on Saturday to support the Latin Quarter Charity night with the fantastic live band Son Sabroso @ The Friary. Special thanks to those that came from further afield too.. Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester ! etc, there were about 125 people who attended.

We raised a total of £869 (after all outgoings) which is great, for the Azul Wasi project in Peru, home for former street children. Many thanks to the 2 sponsors of the evening, A&J Stephen (Builders) Ltd and Wilson Construction (Perth) Ltd, and big thanks to the Bepoke Bar Company who provided free bar hire. Big thanks to Audiowave, Mitch, Louise & Denni for sound, The Friary, SAS advertising for free run of advertising & Grouchos, Vanessa & Fiona for ticket sales. Many thanks to Patrick, Pawel & Pamela for doing the door on the night and to Pawel for printing the lovely table information and to Tom Jolly who couldn’t be with us but made up the lovely Azul Wasi courier update on the tables (attached).

MASSIVE thanks to Son Sabroso for bringing some latin spirit to warm us up on a rainy Dundee night with their great music & vocals and party atmosphere.

Would also like to thank those who helped on the night with the raffle and for all the raffle donations : thanks to Achray Farm Air bnb, The Peruvian Restaurant, V&A museam, Parcari Chocolates, Clara for the Balinese Massage & Johan for the massage vouchers, Sol y Sombra, Fiona M and to everyone else who gave donations. Next time there are lots of prizes we will pre draw & let you collect rather than call them all out, so more dancing time !
