NEW Beginners cross body style Salsa,  6.15-7.05pm, classes start tues 7th September at The Deaf Hub, Old Mill, 23, Brown St, Dundee. Please email LQ salsadundee@gmail.com to book a space as may need to limit numbers in the room, not sure yet.

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

Salsa on2, also known as New York Mambo, is a form of crossbody style salsa which originated in New York in the 1970s and is popular in many cities around the world today. This 1-hour taster workshop will show you the difference between on1 and on2 timings through basic steps and simple moves.
It’s always good to learn more about timing and different styles of salsa dancing, as this will enhance your dancing skills overall.  Hope you can come along to support Yuno’s love and enthusiasm for On 2 salsa, it’s a great class !
