Thanks for choosing Suenos de Salsa for your dance classes!

What should I wear to class?
Wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move well. No street shoes on the dance floor! Bring a pair of dance shoes or  you can dance in socks. Bring a water bottle!

Where can I buy dance shoes?
We carry GFranco Dance Shoes at our Studio. Contact us for info.

What is a Lead and Follow?
The lead (conventionally the male in a mixed-sex couple) is responsible for choosing appropriate steps to suit the music and leading the follow (conventionally the female in mixed sex couples) by using subtle signals to complete the chosen steps smoothly and safely. However you may choose to learn the role of lead or follow regardless of your gender.

Should I bring a water bottle?
Yes! We have cold water to refill your water bottle. We also have bottled water and Gatorade for sale. We do not provide paper cups, sorry.

Do I need to bring a partner?
No, we use an optional rotating system so you will have the opportunity to learn with many different partners.

I don’t see anything on the Upcoming Series page. When is the next Series?
Once a Series has begun, it no longer appears on the Upcoming Series page. Series are posted 3 weeks prior the start date.

What if I miss a class?
Bare in mind that our classes are often sold out and we try very hard to get a 50-50 balance of leads to follows in our classes. Because of this, we don’t allow switching series to make up classes. The only exception to this is if we know that certain LEADS or FOLLOWS  will be missing a class thus opening spots up. Missing class could leave others without practice partners. Because of this we strongly encourage all students to come to the entire Series. If you can’t make it to class, a private lesson is a great way to get caught up. Sorry, No credit will be given for future Series or classes.

What if I want to cancel my class or series?

Cancelations are accepted for private lessons up to 24 hours before your lesson is scheduled. Inside of 24 hours there are no refunds and you will be charged full price for the lesson. Cancelations for 5 week series are accepted up to 48 hours before your Series’ 1st class. You have up to 90 days from original series start date to begin another series after which time your credit will expire. Inside of 48 hours there are no refunds and you will be charged full price for the series and no credit for future series will be given.

Where should I park?
You will find our lot behind the studio. HERE IS THE MAP. It is accessed from 125th. There is a walkway from the lot to the front entrance along the south side of our building. If our lot fills up there’s plenty more across LCW behind Bartell’s and Elliot Brewing.

Where can I go dancing in Seattle?
Here is a link to the most updated salsa dance schedule.

Where can I get music to practice?
There is so much salsa music available it can be hard to pick good songs for practice. Go to the Resources page and use the links to get free tools for practice.

How do I know what class to sign up for?
Start with our Salsa 1 Series. It is for absolute beginners or anyone who wants a strong review to get back into the swing of things. If neither of the above are true for you, call 206.708.5857 or email and we’ll discuss the class that will best suit your skill/experience level.

There are not any classes that work with my schedule. What are my options?
We can work with you to schedule private lessons that work with your schedule.
