Your Useful Beginners Guide on the Dance Floor!

Updated: Oct 7, 2022


Salsa is exciting, refreshing, and maybe a little intimidating for the beginner but if you want to stick with it then you have to obey some basic rules of Dance Floor Etiquette. This is by no means a complete list but here are my top ten. So, let’s get started…….

1.) Don’t stand around waiting for a dance - JUST ASK!

Golden rule! This applies women. Never stand around assuming that someone will ask you for a dance especially as most salsa events attract more women than men. If you like the music and you want to dance just pluck up the courage and ASK a guy, sometimes you may feel that you are not a good enough dancer or you have not got enough confidence, or maybe just new to the club and don’t know many people, whatever your reason TRUST ME salsa is a very friendly environment and statistics tells me that 9 out of 10 times you’re guaranteed a YES!

2.) Gimme a Break – I’m sure I just dance with you 10 minutes ago!
