About salsiando

Salsiando Salsa Academy specializes in teaching Casino salsa, a vibrant dance style originating from Cuba. Stemming from the 1970s, when it was introduced internationally as Cuban-style salsa or Salsa Cubana, Casino salsa distinguishes itself through its rich history and rhythmic complexity. 

At Salsiando, our emphasis lies not only in mastering intricate turns but also in honing the body and fundamentals essential for authentic expression. We believe salsa is more than just a series of steps; it’s a dynamic form of partner dance that allows individuals to communicate and connect through movement.

Our curriculum guides dancers from beginner levels through to advanced stages, seamlessly blending intricate footwork, partner dynamics, and captivating spins to create a truly immersive and fulfilling dance experience.
