Latin Dance Lessons in Naperville
Although salsa dancing is very popular at our studio, there are several other Latin dances we specialize in. In addition to salsa, you can also learn how to dance bachata, cha cha, cumbia, merengue and rumba. All the above are a part of the Latin dance family and you will see those dances at our parties and outings. Because all those dances originated from Latin America, they are quite similar in execution. It is very common to start learning salsa and overtime learn all five Latin dances.

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect from my first lesson?
Lots of fun! In addition to the excitement and fun of your first dance lesson, your instructor will evaluate where are you at with your dancing and what your dance goals are. At the end of the lesson you will set a dance goal for yourself and a timeline to achieve that goal. If you have never danced before, during the first lesson you will be introduced to the basic fundamentals of dance and several dance patterns. You will be learning the lead (men) and follow (women) as well as the art of dancing to the music.
How long does it take to learn how to salsa dance?
Learning how to dance is like learning a new language. Except, instead of using your voice you will be using your body, thus you will be learning body language. Also, like any other skill set, dancing is not acquired overnight. It takes time, practice and persistence. However, the process of learning how to dance is so much fun and enjoyable that the time flies. Learning how to dance is different among different individuals. Also it depends on whether you are learning how to lead vs how to follow. No matter where you are at in life, it is never too late to learn how to dance!
Do I need a dance partner?
You do not need a dance partner to learn how to dance. You will be paired with one of our instructors who will assist you in achieving your dance goals. In the beginning, it is much easier for an amateur to learn how to dance while being one on one with a professional instead of having another amateur partner. In that way you will be able to progress at your own pace and avoid getting bad dance habits you may be unaware of at the beginning of your dance journey.
