Can I come without a partner?
Yes. At the start of each class we attempt to match up couples as best as possible and when available, have more advanced students step in to help. We also constantly switch partners to give you a feel for what social dancing is like.
Can I miss a class?
Yes, for women it is not a big deal but men should try to make every class because their learning curve requires more practice.
Can I make up a missed class?
You can arrange with the instructor if you miss a class. We have frequent practice sessions at On The Rocks.
Can I buy a drop-in pass?
Yes, drop ins are $20.
If you want to keep what you know fresh, you can also join us at On The Rocks on Thursdays at 8:30pm for the introductory class ($5 cover) [more info].
Keep in mind though, most classes build on the one before it, so missing a few can make the process of learning frustrating.

How long have you been teaching?
Salsaddiction has many instructors and the combined teaching experience is measured in decades. If you would like to sample before buying, please attend our free weekly class at On The Rocks on Thursdays (cover $5).
What should I bring?
A bottle of water and indoor, non-marking shoes.
If I have already taken basic Salsa, would it be alright if I start at Level 2?
For both, the follow and the lead, you should know the basic step without thinking about it. For salsa and rueda, how to do a cross body lead, enchufla and the footwork for the basic turns (Quarter Turn for Cuban) is critical. For kizomba, saida mulher and homem are the basis for moves in level 2. If you feel comfortable with social dancing at a basic level, you are probably ready for level 2. A good way to tell what level you are; is to attend a free weekly class at On The Rocks on Thursdays (cover $5) and check with the instructor there.
What should I wear?
We suggest loose, comfortable clothing that allow perspiration. Tight jeans are not suggested because they limit movement. Wear comfortable indoor shoes.
