GARETH IS BACK, SO EXCITED!!!!!!!! Oh yes, he has been missing you all so after finishing his exams next week he wants to get back into training ready to teach a special one-off night of workshops for you all with Laucinda in July!!!!
Friday 16th July – the schedule will be as follows (all classes with Gareth & Laucinda):
7.15 pm – Open level SOLO On2 footwork. Also ideal for those who are well established in On1 and want to learn how to convert to On2 as well as good for people who already dance On2.

8.30 pm – On2 PARTNER Salsa class (household or support bubble partners only). Using On2 New York Salsa timing. Unsuitable for dancers below Intermediate level.
The partner is currently SOLD OUT but do put your name on a waiting list as we often have last-minute cancellations and if there is enough interest we may run another the following week.

COST – All of these classes cost £10 per person per class (£9 per person per class with an up to date NUS card). To book, email or message Facebook Salsa In York or email@example.com or call / text 07725 478479
Covid risk mitigation protocols may still be in place (we continue to follow the government guidelines), the details of which are emailed out to every student. Plus both Encuentro Latino and York Dance Space have covid risk assessments available to view should you require. There can be no dance partner swapping in partner work classes until the 19th July at the earliest but things are constantly changing and seeing as the dates for the workshops are close to this time we have decided to stick with fixed partners rather than allowing swapping, so if you book a partner class, please book to attend with a household or bubbled partner to avoid disappointment. Thanks for your continued support of Encuentro Latino.
Future date of 30th July tbc
Thanks for your continued support of Encuentro Latino and Humba Rumba, LET’S DANCE PEEPS!
Please note that during normal non-pandemic operation there are programme changes and cancellations you need to know about which you will find listed further down this page.

PLUS ‘Gently Ballroom’: Trained by Matthew Cutler from BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing (winner in 07′ with Alesha Dixon) and James White of White Diamond Entertainment, Laucinda Roberts brings you her own brand ‘Gently Ballroom’. Elegant, gentle paced, recreational Ballroom dance steps for those looking for a touch of class in their class who want to exercise in style to their favourite easy music, plus a little Latin thrown in for good measure!!! No partner required. Maybe you fancy the Foxtrot, query the Quickstep or are wondering about the Waltz? This one hour class is designed for all but will also suit those who are more mature, less fit, or maybe recovering from injury. Let’s not forget the social aspect too. You are sure to meet friends old and new and enjoy the community feel this will bring. So what are you waiting for? Keeeep dancing!!!
