Queer Salsa & Latinx DJ Dance Social!

Explore connection and communication through movement at our Queer Salsa Workshop and Latinx DJ Dance Social.

Our workshop is designed to introduce you to the fundamentals of salsa while placing a special emphasis on building connection and care between partners. No need to bring anyone as we’ll rotate throughout the session and teach you how to consensually approach new people to dance.

We’ll begin with footwork and styling, to help you understand the basic rhythm of the music and how to add your own personal expression into salsa. In the partner workshop you’ll choose to either lead or follow. We’ll guide you through these roles with a progressive routine. Through specific exercises we’ll playfully explore energy and tension between each other, where you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the connection points that form the foundation of partner dancing.

As the workshop progresses, we’ll introduce you to different speeds, styling techniques, and spins, giving you the foundations to confidently take to the dance floor.

After the workshop, you’ll be able to practise your new moves at our Latinx DJ Set, where we’ll be mixing salsa, reggaeton and more. The workshop is an incredible warmer to encourage friends and strangers to communicate and connect with each other – you’ll be surprised how comfy it feels to ask someone for a lil dance.
