What can you expect of the Monday Mambo Team and our Classes?

A teaching team devoted to helping you develop as a Salsero or Salsera.
A teaching team that genuinely wants to'hook you up' with all that Salsa has to offer the dancer as he/she progresses deeper into the music and dance.
A teaching program that will challenge you, gently, and thus lead you to achieve greater and greater proficiency.


Teaching that focuses on good technique, without fudging, so that you become a genuinely good dancer, and not one that simply looks good but without substance.
Teaching that encourages you to explore your own instincts as a dancer, and how to hook up your imagination and musical feelings to your dancing.
Teaching which addresses the whole class AND the the individual by working with the group, but also setting time aside for each person. No one need feel singled out as all are given the same 1-to-1 opportunities.

A warm, comfortable learning environment in which to learn.
An environment which encourages you to 'own' your dancing through asking questions and seeking clarity on any issue arising in class.
An environment which seeks to integrate you as one big Salsa 'family' from day 1. You are not Intermediates, Improvers and Beginners each locked away from each other till you're 'ready' to join the Scene. From day 1 we ask you to consider yourself Salseros all, and we invite you to DANCE!
