Salsa dance lesson – Find a salsa dancing instructor

Take a salsa dance lesson with one of these fine instuctors

A salsa dance lesson with one of these instructors will help you hone in your salsa dancing skills. You can choose to take private or group dance lessons. If you are a quick learner, private salsa lessons may be the best way to go. You will receive one on one instruction and you can progress very quickly to the next level. They are crucial if you want to progress to a professional level in the least amount of time.


Group salsa dance lessons are ideal for a casual salsa dancer. They are very affordable. A typical class costs between $12 to $15. Partners are switched frequently which allow you to learn to dance with different people of varying dance abilities. It also prevents you from getting stuck with one person who may be having trouble.  Group lessons usually have a large number of people, so sometimes individual attention may suffer. So remember to speak up and ask questions if you have one.

After your salsa dance lesson, be sure you go out salsa dancing at a Salsa Club so you can practice your new skills!

Tony Cee - salsa dance lessonIndependent Dance instructor: Tony Cee (Tony Cordero)

Locations: Long Beach, CA

Private Lessons,

Semi Private, and Private Group Classes,

and more..


Comments: At each salsa dance lesson, Tony Cee tries to give students something different than other teachers provide. He has always thought that it is important to have good technique when you are dancing. It is important to Tony to teach people how to transition from one move to the next even when it is a very basic class. To him, that is what makes dancing beautiful; the general flow from one move to the other as if you are telling a story when you are dancing.
