Salsa Questions



Do you have questions about the Salsa course or the enrolment in Salsamania?
Here, we have collected the most frequently asked questions. If you donít find the answer to your question, the best option is to contact Salsamania directly and they will be pleased to help you.


I donít have a dance partner. Can I still inscribe for a class in Salsamania?

Of course! Many participants donít have a dance partner and come alone to the Salsa class. Salsamania guarantees a dance partner to a 100%, meaning that there is always a balanced number of men and women in a Salsa course.
So, if you enrol alone, Salsamania will organise a suitable dance partner for you.


Iíve already visited Salsa classes in the ĄxyzĒ schoolÖ How do I know on which level I can enrol in Salsamania?

Many students change from other Salsa schools to Salsamania. The best way is to book a private lesson and the qualified dance teacher will evaluate the right course level for you.


What clothes should I wear for the Salsa class?

Salsamania doesnít have any rules regarding clothes. You should be able to move easily and you should also calculate that it can get quiet warm dancing Salsa. But the most important point is that you feel comfortable, because itís your free time you spend in Salsamania!


Do I need special shoes?

No! The first Salsa courses you can make in normal shoes, just a rubber sole or sandals without a good support are unfavourable. As soon as you decide to carry on with Salsa as a hobby for a longer term, special dance shoes may be a good investment.


How old are the participants in the Salsamania Salsa courses?

Salsamania doesnít know the age of the new participants in advance. But, due to experience, they can say that their students cover all ages between 16 and 75 years. Salsa brings more quality of life for all and is not limited to a certain age group.


Of how many pairs consists a Salsamania course?

Thatís variable. Depending on course level and course type, the number of participants varies. But, Salsamania minds that there is always enough space for all pairs and that all pairs can be attended individually.


I/We donít have any previous knowledge! What should we do?

No problem. The Salsamania beginner courses are REAL beginner courses, meaning you really donít need any previous knowledge.
Salsamania knows that the worry about a humiliation, especially for men, is a decisive point for the shy attitude when it comes to dancing. For this reason, Salsamania starts from the very beginning and introduces you easily, step by step, into the art of Salsa! Salsamania dance school really cares about that point!


We always get into quarrels! Whatís wrong?

Donít panic! Dancing sometimes causes fights, especially if one partner in a pair has much more previous knowledge then the other one. Remember that a lot depends on the day and that on some days it just doesnít work out. Thatís normal and shouldnít worry you and your dance partner.
If you often get into arguments, a short conversation with the dance teacher may be helpful. Does the woman let herself lead? Does the man give the right leading impulses? Do you maybe dance in different rhythms? The dance teacher can clear all those questions directly with you. Just ask him, for example, in the break or before class. A Salsa dance course is only fun when both partner dance together as a team.


Can I visit a trial lesson in Salsamania?

Yes, thatís possible. Salsamania, regularly, offers free trial lessons. In this lesson, you get a good introduction into Salsa dancing and a ďsurvivalĒ package for future Salsa dancers. Current dates you find in the course programme.
