Salsa & Bachata Classes

I teach Salsa and Bachata dance lessons in Cambridgeshire.

Classes are for Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced Dancers.

One of the best things about dancing is that while you’re having fun moving to music and meeting new people, you’re getting all the health benefits of a good workout. Regular dancing is great for losing weight, maintaining strong bones, improving posture and muscle strength, increasing balance and co-ordination, and beating stress. The good thing is there is no age limit to dancing.


Salsa dancing is a fun and flirtatious form of partner dancing, fusing steamy Afro-Caribbean and Latin styles into simple and lively movements.

The word “salsa” is Spanish for “sauce” (usually hot and spicy) which is a great for a dance that’s energetic, passionate and sexy!

The basic steps are easy to learn and you could salsa your way across the dance floor before you know it.


Bachata dance styles originated in the Dominican Republic in the late 1950s. Both the music and the dance have been influenced by Cuban Bolero, the Merengue (also of Dominican Republic origin), Salsa and Cumbia.

This dance genre is danced as a three-step, ending in a tap on the 4th beat, with Cuban hip motions. It is a magnificent dance and has been receiving different influences.

Nowadays, on the dance floors we can see different ways of dancing bachata. Leandro combines all styles in his teaching ,with the main focus on sensual and urban bachata.
