Currently, we are having Partner Work classes for both beginners and intermediate dancers in Salsa Style. In the future we wish to offer a broader range of different dance styles for dancers at all levels and ages.
At the Partner Work classes, each dancer has an important role. The men should lead, and the women are not being passive but are ready to react at the right time. Leading, body control and placement are also some of the topics to be taught.
It is ok to be ambitious but most importantly, be patient. Never forget to smile! You will automatically feel more relaxed. That feeling will be transmitted to your dance partner, and in the end, you will forget how difficult the dance was but only how fun it becomes!
Ladies Style Classes
Ladies’ Style contains classes for both beginners and intermediate dancers. The lessons are only for ladies. A dance partner is not required as here we focus on your individual development.
Ladies’ Style classes are for those who would like to gain a better understanding of why and how to move. It’s also for those who would like to learn more about musicality, body isolation and coordination. If want to learn how to dance Salsa or Sensual Bachata, then you are at the right place!
This class is a Mix of Urban Street Styles like Hip-Hop, Latin Reggaeton, and Dancehall. Team A is thought to the youngest of the house 8-13 years old and Team B teenagers 14-18 years old. Come and dance with Oline Madsen it will be fun!
Latin Street is Back with Oline Madsen.
At the Latin Street classes, a dance partner is not required as the classes will focus on your own and each individual development. The level will be beginners to intermediate and on each class, if you are ready to move on, you will learn new moves. Sounds like a Style you wanna learn then join the FUN!

SOME OF THE FAQ OF A BEGINNER DANCER
+ - How Salsa/Casino can be executed?
Cuban Salsa can be executed in three different ways: Solo Dance/Free Style where normally one dances alone in a line, as in the case of the Ladies’ Style or Footwork classes. Partner Work, which is perfect when going out dancing socially with your dance partner. And Rueda de Casino, danced in a big circle. There is always one person calling the moves/figures and most of these moves/figures involve the swapping of a partner. Rueda de Casino is great fun!
+ - What to wear at the Classes
Comfortable shoes and clothes are recommended. We advise against sandals and gum soles. You need to be able to move smoothly and securely. We do not want your soles to stick to the floor when turning. Shoes with soft soles are the best! If you are still in doubt, please contact us!
For Latin Street classes, sports shoes are recommended.
+ - Do I need a Dance Partner?
You don´t need a dance partner to register at the partner work classes. If you register alone, we will pair you up with another participant. The idea is to have an equal number of leaders and followers. We will also have partner rotation at the class so you will get to meet all the participants. A fun way to get to know each other and make new friends!
+ - HOW LONG IS THE SEASON AND HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? CAN I TRY A CLASS?
Normally, a season will be 6 classes, but on Christmas, Easter and Summer period, the season can be extended two more classes.
6 Times Season will cost 650 DKK per person
8 Times Season will cost 850 DKK per person
Can I try a class?
Yes, you can! Come give it a try. It will cost 150 DKK.
+ - WHAT AM I GOING TO EXPERIENCE?
You will experience an evening “sanctuary” where all worries are put on the shelf and where laughter becomes the protagonist. You will find out that Cuban Salsa is intoxicating, seductive, energizing and life assertive. And above all, it’s great fun!
+ - HOW FAST WILL I LEARN?
Learning to Dance Salsa is like learning any new skill. How fast you learn depends on your starting point. At first, it may feel very strange, but step by step, it will slowly become part of your nature. Some people learn faster than others, but everyone can learn it. All you need is practice, practice and practice.
+ - WHAT IS THE AGE LIMIT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CLASSES?
There is no age limit, and everyone is welcome! It ́s never too early or too late to start dancing!
