The Rugby Salsa Dance School
...run by a couple of locals who just want to share their love for salsa!
ABC Salsa first opened its doors on a cold, bleak, wintery Sunday evening in late 2017 and has been bringing a little bit of Latin sunshine to Rugby ever since. Initially starting out with classes for complete beginners, we soon added our intermediate classes to Sunday nights, allowing our students to continue on their salsa journeys, improving on existing skills and techniques they've already gained.
After the success of Sunday night classes at The Cawston Community Hall, summer 2018 saw us open the doors to our second venue just across town at The Barn in Houlton, allowing beginners and intermediates alike to tread the boards on Wednesday evenings for a mid-week salsa fix. Throughout 2018 and 2019 we also went on to add a range of workshops to our repertoire, introducing the high tempo Salsacise class and a Rueda de Casino workshop; with plans for more to come in 2020.
The focus has always been FUN! AnyBody is welcome and with our informal classes focussed on guiding students through the basics, we work with you to build on your skills and confidence over time. One thing you can guarantee is that we don’t expect perfection, nor the next ‘Strictly Star’, remember fun, footloose and fancy-free is exactly how dancing should make you feel, so don't be afraid, apprehensive or simply too nervous to give it a go!
