At SalSeduce we cater for all styles of
salsa on the dance floor. Our classes mainly
focus on LA/New York/Cross Body Lead style and Cuban Salsa. These are the two most popular Salsa styles on the dance floor.
LA (On 1) is danced strictly on 1, in a slot \ line, using elements of various North American and stage dances. This helps keep dancers from hitting other couples on a crowded dance floor. It is strongly influenced by the Latin Hustle, Swing, Argentine Tango and Latin Ballroom dancing styles
New York (On2) is danced in an ellipse or a “flat figure 8” on the floor, with the partners facing each other most of the time. Unlike other styles of salsa, New York style is danced on the second beat of the music (“on 2”), and the follower steps forward on the first measure of the music, not the leader. There is greater emphasis on performing “shines” in which dancers separate themselves and dance solo with intricate footwork and styling for a time.
Cuban/Casino is danced in three points which makes up a circular motion as partners face each other in intricate patterns of arms and body movement. In Cuban Salsa typically involves men being “macho” and women being femininely sexy, with major body and muscle isolations, through the influence of Rumba dancing.
SalSeduce is a great place to dance and watch others dance in a friendly sociable atmosphere.
Fantastic venue with amazing teachers. Looking forward to more!

First visit last night and it didn't disappoint! I was very nervous as I had gone alone but Chris put everyone at ease immediately. The class was fun and easy to pick up, cant wait for next week!
Came last night for the first and wasn't sure what to expect and was a little nervous. OMG! it was amazing; great instruction and a lovely friendly bunch of people. I will definitely be back!
A fabulous, fun filled night! I'd recommend it to anyone, it's a brilliant way to socialise, learn salsa, and make new friends!
