Salsa Dance Lessons in Los Angeles

“Michael teaches the steps so that you “get it”. You’re never in class feeling like you don’t know what’s going on. He teaches in a way so that you not only can understand in class, but you can take what you’ve learned and dance anywhere with anyone. And I have. I am now able to go to Salsa clubs all over the city and dance dance dance!” -Selene

Our ultimate goal is for Salsa to become a part of you, so that your feet will express the music of your heart. All of our classes are four-week series (they meet for four consecutive weeks) and are 45 minutes long.

We believe in supporting our students’ goals at every stage of their dance lesson education. We offer Los Angeles’ premier Ballroom and Latin dance classes for dancers of all levels. We are committed to our students and look forward to every lesson.

Salsa is an incredibly popular, dynamic and exuberant dance that expresses the rhythm and joy of its distinctive Afro-Cuban music. There is sizzling Salsa dancing in clubs all over LA every night of the week.

Tuesday night is Salsa Night at Ballroom Dance Academy and we have a progressive series of fun and informative classes for everyone from beginners to experienced Salsa pros. Our teaching goes far beyond just giving you a series of patterns to memorize. We teach you about the music, the rhythms, and the organic and spontaneous character of this joyful dance.
