Nashville truly is a great place to salsa, but keeping up with all the special events can be the most tricky part. On an average week, you can find us dancing at Play on Wednesdays, Ibiza on Thursdays-Friday, but we also have special events scheduled on Fridays and Saturdays at places like Mad Donna's, DancEast, Casa Azafran, Nashville Ballroom, Urban Studios, Barefoot Studios, Anthem, 12 South Bistro, and at the Global Education Center. These special events are usually fantastic and provide a nice change of pace from the weekly routine. Check our calendar to see what's going on tonight, and meet us there! We'd love to see you on the dance floor!
If you are new to salsa, then there is no time like the present to get started learning it. The salsa community in Nashville is very friendly and welcoming. It's definitely something that you should be a part of. Lessons are a great place to start. We teach a fusion of LA and Cuban style salsa giving our students a great foundation in the dance and making them versatile enough to be able to dance with anyone. We have beginner classes every Monday night at 6:30pm and Intermediate/Advanced classes at 7:30pm at Urban Dance Studios.
We also have a salsa performance team called Nashville Rueda. Feel free to contact us for more information about getting salsa dancers to perform at your event, salsa instructors to teach, or a DJ to play great latin tracks at your party. We would love to make your event a memorable one.

Join us Saturday, December the 14th for a special rueda bootcamp that will take you from knowing nothing about rueda to learning 30 different salsa casino turn patterns that you can do with your partner or with a group of people in a rueda.
The first two hours, we will cover the basics of getting a rueda going. We will review moves like dame, adios, enchufla, el uno, and candado. You will learn the meanings, hand signals, and how to execute each more easily as you change partners. In the second two hours, you will learn how to build more complex turn patterns off of the vacila, a uniquely Cuban way of getting into a turn pattern. You will also learn how to call a rueda yourself so that where ever you and your friends go, you can have a rueda.
For this bootcamp, it would be helpful if you know how to do your basic step and cross body lead, but all levels are welcome. NO PARTNER NECESSARY. After the bootcamp, we will be throwing a salsa party from 9pm-1am giving you an opportunity to try your new rueda skills in a social setting. The 4-hour workshop is just $30. The party is just $5, so don't miss this opportunity to quickly learn such a fun style of dancing.
All events will be hosted at Urban Studios.
