Every Thursday Night Salsa Classes, Lessons and Club in Harpenden.
Start Salsa dancing & change your life!
The perfect Life Challenge.
Fun, sociable, improve fitness.
We never share information.
Unfortunately, due to issues outside our control, we have been forced to temporarily suspend Thursday night classes and social dancing.
Private lessons are continuing as normal over the Xmas period as I have my own private studio for these.
Please message me if you know of a suitable venue with a suitable dance floor.
SORRY - Attention, please:
Maria and I had invited our members to an informal soiree on Thurs 23rd Dec. However, the tide has turned quickly, and with new restrictions and the general sentiment, it doesn't seem the right time to do this now, and this we must postpone.
So so sorry. Everyone was looking forward to an off-beat-on-beat meetup, but it's a bitter-sweet reminder that safety comes first in our Salsa family.
I hope you aren't too disappointed, and we wish you a very Merry Xmas and Happy NY celebration.
Much love and warm hugs,
Ben & Maria.
EVERY THURSDAY - Temporarily Suspended
In a nutshell ther are 6 classes, 3 at 7:15 and 3 at 8:00, and social dancing from 9:00 to 11:00.
You can pay-as-you-go (no booking necessary) or pay a monthly subscription which attracts a loyalty discount of more than 50%. Prices are below.
The success of any new hobby relies on the crucial initial commitment, so I strongly recommend taking advantage of the subscription: you will be more likely to overcome the initial barriers beginners face, such as maintaining consistency, building confidence and creating positive habits. A subscription also represents crazy-good value and has no downside.
The first session is a technical session, and the second session is the corresponding creative session. Let me explain:
CLASS SESSION 1 (7:15 pm)
CLASS 1 Foundation Moves & Techniques (Beginners)*
CLASS 2 Core Moves & Techniques (Intermediate)*
CLASS 3 Advanced Techniques & Styling
CLASS SESSION 2 (8:00 pm)
CLASS 1 Foundation Creative Patterns (Beginners)*
CLASS 2 Core Moves & Techniques Creative Patterns (Intermediate)*
CLASS 3 Advanced Creative Patterns
SOCIAL DANCING from 9:00 pm (currently FREE)
You can attend just one session, but they are built to work together. This format is designed to accelerate your progress, stimulate creativity, and build confidence in Salsa.
* Classes have a carefully controlled content rotation, which means you can start as a beginner at any week in the rotation and continue working through the rotated content over a number of weeks until you complete everything. After several rotations, an instructor will make recommendations for you to ascend.
Our subscriptions represent a more than 50% loyalty discount and are super-simple.
SUPER SAVER ALL IN
£40 per calendar month.
Includes everything on a Thursday night.
SUPER SAVER SOCIAL
£14 per calendar month.
Access to the social dancing every Thursday night.
For months that have 5 Thursdays, you get a completely free night!
Starts as soon as you subscribe and renews on the same date every month.
No minimum duration, and cancel any time, pay by debit/credit card.
No account, username, password or membership card required, just rock up and rock in - super simple!
Subscription members benefit from such a huge loyalty discount because we treat our members as family. For beginners, subscription is recommended because as well as being amazing value, it also creates that all-important commitment required when starting something new.
1 CLASS = £10
A SECOND CLASS ATTRACTS 50% DISCOUNT
2 CLASSES = £15
SOCIAL DANCING = FREE
Social dancing is free for everyone for the rest of this year until January 2022.
From January 2022 it will be £7, but if you've also bought a class it will be discounted to £5.
You can attend either the first or the second session, but, they are structured so that session 1 prepares you for session 2.
More information about Thursday night....
Classes are structured so that they rotate content over a set number of weeks. This means you can join any time and add to your repertoire each week. If you miss a week, not to worry, as the content will come round again soon. Each class should be repeated several times as the content cannot all be learned in one attendance - this is another advantage of having such a rotation scheme. You will find new things to incorporate into your dancing and how to finesse those things already integrated into your skillset.
Salsa Machine has a reputation for the highest quality teaching. You can rest assured that progression through our levels will facilitate you becoming the best possible dancer you can be.
With regular attendance and practice, you can become an accomplished Salsa dancer in a relatively short space of time.
Private Lessons are also conducted in Harpenden at a separate location in a dedicated private dance studio.
Many people like to start with Private Salsa Lesson because this an excellent way of gaining a very rapid and thorough insight into dancing, building skill levels quickly and achieving self-confidence. Find out more about how Private Salsa Lessons could serve your needs by visiting the Private Lessons page and all will be explained...
