A great choice for anyone wanting to start cross body Salsa, improve as a dancer, make friends! I have been taking classes with SalsaTropical for about 1 year.Classes take place in the LSE student’s union, about a 10 minute walk from Holborn/Temple tube stations.The dance space is a large airy room, with lots of light and a great dance floor.Classes are held twice a week, on Mondays and Wednesdays. A typical class will have 15 students and at least 2 instructors ( a leader and a follower). There is a strong emphasis on good technique, and frame. The instructors will have a pre-planned lesson, and over 1 hour everyone will complete a short routine. The instructors demonstrate the moves, but also walk around the class giving individual feedback. During the class you will change partners regularly, but also dance with the instructors, which helps build your understanding of leading, following, timing, signalling etc.Overall there will be about 50 -60 students, split into, 3 levels: beginners, improvers, and intermediate. There are lot of 'regulars', who come every week, and progress together.The students and instructors are a friendly, diverse group of people, so any new joiner will find it easy to fit in and enjoy a class.There are classes from 7-9pm, and you can combine different levels as you progress e.g. two beginner classes, a beginner and improver class, an improver and an intermediate class.The dance floor is open from 9-10pm, there is a friendly vibe, with students from different levels dancing together, along with the instructors. It is a great way to build up your ‘Salsa confidence'.Besides the weekly classes there are regular weekend workshops, and socials organised by Salsa Tropical , plus there are ad-hoc meet-ups to go to different Salsa events in London.read more

Maria is an excellent passionate global dance teacher who I have had classes with for approx 6 months! I had ZERO dance experience. We started partner work early and I felt really comfortable partner dancing with her and she never made me feel bad if I didn't know what move to do next for example! At the same time I knew she expected me to know my moves. Every class was FUN because Maria is easy to talk to and fun to dance with and I looked forward to all of them. I learnt the footwork and different steps and in each class she added something extra or something extra to a move we had already done. I went to Colombia and all the individual steps I had already done with Maria so job done! Maria is very professional, always on time, has good accommodation to work from, and is a fun dance teacher who is passionate about what she does and I feel connects well with her clients. The dancing wasn't "scientific" as a large part of dancing is feeling, timing etc. Choose Maria if you don't want to dance like a robot!read more

Salsatropical Limited facilitated a evening entitled Mojito Monday at our office on 4th June 2018. The event was a complete success we had the services of 2 teachers Kelly and Sean and a DJ. Everyone who attended said how much the enjoyed the evening - the Teachers were extremely patient, friendly and professional. The majority of attendees were novices to Salsa, the pace of the dance instruction was perfect. The music was great as well. I would definitely engage the services of Salsatropical again.Anita DraytonIntuitread more

Last year, when I first stepped into a class at Salsa Tropical I didn’t know a pattern in the dance and I didn’t have the right shoes. Face to face, partnered with a stranger, I quickly learned that if I had any hope of coordinating how I heard the beat, correctly interpreted my partner’s lead and skillfully executed a move I had to stay present, plus connect to and trust myself, my partner, the music and the dance. In a jumble of missteps, apologies and the sinking sensation that I was irretrievably clumsythere was, however, a positive outcome: Some part of me loved and yearned and wanted more of the training to focus, the challenge to achieve and the glorious, joyful freedom that dance promised. At last, I’d found a passion that lured my mind away from the past by promising something that felt wonderful in the present.Slowly, through hours of classes and practice with the wonderful teachers at Salsa Tropical my dancing improved and I also started feeling more confident and relaxed.On my 10-month anniversary of joining the school, I would like to say to everyone at Salsa Tropical, how grateful I am for their patience and perseverance. Thank you for helping me to find and sustain a life-affirming connection to joy in the present. That connection—to life, myself, purpose and passion—helped me renegotiate a vision of myself.read more

It was real pleasure to attend 3 months salsa class. Maria is very nice lady and friendly teacher. She really cares about you. Mike Anthony is really a Salsa Master. In 3 months nothing has been repeated. They were very generous in terms of new stuff. They left their signatures on my salsa dancing. I am really appreciated for their efforts and friendly manners. A recommendable Salsa Spot in London.read more

i spent three great months in these school and i can say, without any doubt, that salsatropical is one of the best salsa school in London. Maria, Mike and all the others teachers are really friendly and professional. They know all the different salsa style (Cuban, New York and L.A.) and teach in so nice and fun way. Maria also organize great workshop during the weekend for all the dance levels to improve the dance skill. Maria is so lovely and patient teacher, and Mike is so fun, professional and scrupulous to details. I had a great fun and I learnt a lot from them. It is definitely enjoyable. No pressure, fun, and good music! I also met a lot of nice people there and I have been so sad when i had to leave. Thanks Maria, Mike and all the others teachers for what you gave me and for the great time together.read more

Maria and Mike came my 40th birthday party and they really made my night! I was really nervous beforehand but Maria gave lots of reassurance over the phone and it was obvious they knew what they were doing. Maria and Mike arrived early to set up and get a feel for the party. There were about 80 guests all in a slightly raucous party mood and I thought they would never get everyone to join in. But amazingly they managed to get all the guests into couples and do a lesson and everyone loved it! They wow-ed us all with their performance beforehand, and after the lesson they danced with anyone and everyone who wanted to dance- whatever the level, and however much their toes got trampled on. They totally got into the party spirit, mojitos and all, and they stayed even after the booking time (probably because some of the more enthusiastic women would not let Mike go!!). They were really fantastic and absolutely made the party. Everyone has been talking about them since. I can't thank Maria, Mike and Salsa Tropical enough- extremely professional and slick but so much fun too! what a birthday!read more
