What’s your Salsa move?


Dance first. Think later. It’s the natural order.” ~Samuel Beckett

It’s coming up to summer no matter what the weather is telling us right now (seriously, what’s with all the rain in the past week?) and there are plenty who are hankering for some sunshine, a chance to host a BBQ, grab a picnic at the park, attend music festivals and of course, to dance.

Salsa clubs are becoming the places to go to have some rhythmic fun. With venues mushrooming all over the city, the salseros that form part of this salsa circuit must be delighted to be in such spotlight.

Before you get to the level to dance salsa freely, there are steps that you ought to master and for this purpose, there are numerous salsa classes somewhere in the city. No more excuses that a particular day doesn’t suit – there are classes just about everyday! Go with friends, partners or on your own, it doesn’t matter at all. It is not difficult to find classes where there are nearly as many guys as the ladies, if not more. I kid you not.

Unless you’re following specific series of dance courses (e.g. 6 weeks Beginners) most of the beginners, improvers and intermediate classes are organised as drop-in classes. You can join any day, whenever suits. And you won’t even need to attend in consecutive weeks. Most classes are charged at €10 each for one hour, with some salsa club time later on to continue dancing and practicing as you wish.

Here’s a list of the best known salsa class providers in Dublin and the days of their main salsa clubs:

Do you know of any others that I’ve missed? Then let me know and I’ll get the list updated. Go on, put your dancing boots on and put a wiggle in your step. You will have a blast and catch the fever. ;-)
