This could be your first step in learning Salsa by watching Salsa-Tropical’s online Salsa Lessons.  We have videos of easy to follow steps from the fundamentals up to completion of your first Salsa course.  You could also be one of our regular students who would like to carry on practising at your own space and at your own time.  With these online videos, you may repeat all lessons as often as you can up until you master all the steps.  We believe that just like any other skills, dancing salsa is about repetition and practice!

We hope you enjoy the lessons and make the most of it!
