A salsa club is a great place to dance, meet people, and practice what you've learned
in salsa class. The best way to learn is to go out and do it! You will find many
dancers at different skill levels at these clubs. You'll find salsa babies, intermediate
dancers, and possibly advanced dancers. There is an added benefit if you can dance
with someone with more experience. You'll be able improve your dancing more quickly.
If you are new to salsa dancing, you should ask for feedback and tips to see if
there is something you can work on. Almost everyone is willing to help!
But remember not to take your salsa dancing too seriously when you are at a salsa
club. Many people are there to have a good time social dancing. I have heard
many women complain "That guy takes dancing too seriously! He was constantly complaining
about my dancing and telling me what to do!" So, as a rule of thumb, do not give
any advice unless it's asked for.
Many salsa clubs are at bars and restaurants. They can also be found in warehouses,
dance halls, and dance studios. Almost all of the dance clubs offer a free
lesson before the dancing begins. They usually range from basic to basic/intermediate
to give you a taste of what it's like.
Expect the free class to begin early in the night between 8 PM and 9 PM with social
dancing starting at 10 PM. Dancing usually goes into the early morning between 1
AM and 2 AM, but some places (like in New York) do not close until 4 AM.
If you don't have anyone to go dancing with, then just show up by yourself. You
don't need a regular dance partner. It is actually good to show up by yourself because
it forces you to put yourself out there outside your comfort zone. If you show up
to a salsa club with a friend, you may find yourself dancing with them the whole
night. Salsa dancing is a social dance, so be social!
Men... If you are still a beginner, be a man and don't be shy. If you only know
the basic step, that's ok. As long as you can do a good basic the
woman won't mind. The salsa community is generally easygoing and nice. We all have
to start somewhere. So get out there and dance!
Women... You've got it easy. Just don't hide in the corner sitting at a table, or
stand too close next to another guy. If you want someone to ask you to dance, stand
near the dance floor at least 5 feet away from another guy and enjoy yourself and
move to the music. Another guy is bound to see you and ask you to dance. If
you are more modern and don't like waiting, by all means, ask another guy to
Cover is usually cheap, between $10 to $15. Some places don't ask for a cover charge,
so it's free dancing all night!
If you are not familiar with the salsa club, I strongly recommend that you give
them a call before going to verify the event details. Remember to bring your ID
if you are going to a bar.
