Busy dips class
Our Salsa classes are turn pattern classes (partner work) Cross body On1 style (there is also an On2 style aka New York Mambo workshop monthly). We will teach occasional classes in Pachanga, Cha Cha, Bachata and Reggaeton, Merengue, Samba No Pe’, male and female styling, shines, Afro-Latin Body Movement, spinning, performance and choreography! Plus for details of the ‘Gently Ballroom’ class please see the bottom of this page!


Here is what we can offer from September. We will make tentative moves towards the reopening of our classes as follows:
We have worked through guidelines & webinars specific to the dance sector & prepared covid risk assessments & risk mitigation protocols. The first two sets of On1 & On2 fixed groups (fixed group bubbles) have sold out. We have started taking names for the next fixed groups. We are confident in using York Dance Space as they are already open & have their risk mitigations in place. Revolution are extremely interested in having us back but they are not quite ready yet.
So far, the requests from Beginners is both minimal or from singles. For partner-work, remember we can only consider those of you in couples living together or dance partnerships at the moment to be the first to safely attend. Obviously partner changes during classes will not be safe for some considerable time yet. We can meet any demand for solo / shines work if requested (again numbers limited & groups MUST be fixed with no bubble transfers) so let us know.
If you want to be on the mailing list for any of these classes you will need to email info@encuentrolatino.co.uk with your name & the name of your dance partner, or if single what you want from the classes, or text 07725 478479

In the live in-person classes, please expect strict cleaning regimes, pre-registration, masks or face coverings & pre-payment online. Thanks so much for your support and patience guys! 💃🕺

Please note that during normal operation there are programme changes and cancellations you need to know about which you will find listed further down this page.
