WELCOME TO SALSA-ASI !
Salsa in Kent
Salsa-Asi ! are Bob Long and Julia Perry who, together with friends and helpers, run weekly Salsa Classes and Club nights in Canterbury, plus occasional workshops and parties in the Canterbury, Herne Bay and Whitstable areas.
The only requirements to attend these events are a ready smile, a friendly disposition, and a sense of fun (as well as the entrance fee, of course!).
There are various different styles of Salsa, but we teach Crossbody (on 1) Salsa, with emphasis on good basic techniques as well as routines, with which we hope to give the confidence to explore and enjoy the wonderful experience we call ‘Salsa’.
Everyone is welcome, from complete beginners to experienced dancers; young and old; couples, singles and groups of friends. Dress code is comfortable/casual, but feel free to dress-up if you wish.
Our class nights generally start with a warm-up, followed by about an hour of teaching, and then a warm-down. After this, there is freestyle dancing and the opportunity to practice what has been learned; or just chill, watch and enjoy the atmosphere.
Whilst we encourage our students to improve and to achieve the best level they can, there is absolutely no pressure to do so, and the evenings are meant to be stress-relief, a place to come and forget the world, meet and make friends, or just to ‘lose yourself’ for an hour or two. It provides exercise, and is more fun than the treadmill!
The Salsa-Asi ! philosophy is that we should all enjoy the evening, have as much fun, and give as much pleasure to those we dance with, as possible. Salsa-Asi ! means, literally, ‘to dance salsa like this’; by that, we mean ‘this is our way of dancing salsa’ . We hope it will be your way too. . . Please come along and join us.
