Salsa-tropical recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups, including the disabled, the visually impaired and those with motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities.

This statement explains the accessibility features we have implemented to help you use our website. They help to improve navigation for screen readers, keyboard navigation and text-only browsers among other things.

You can find out about this website’s accessibility features in the sections below:

  • General information
  • Background, text and colour
  • Non-text elements
  • Links and navigation
  • Frames and tables

Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback regarding the accessibility of this site or if you experience any difficulty using it. Alternatively you can contact us.

General information

We’ve designed this site with accessibility in mind. Some of the general features include:

  • The use of clear, simple language which is easy to understand.
  • The use of common web conventions.
  • Avoiding the use of blinking or flickering elements.
  • The use of validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
  • Standards Compliance

We have strived to ensure our website conforms to level A compliance as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). In some cases the website provides enhanced features via JavaScript. Our goal is to provide equivalent functionality for users who are not able to use JavaScript and we are working hard to achieve this.

Background, text and colour

Careful use of text colours, size and background colours can help people with a range of visual impairments. Here’s what we’ve done:


Our site is usable by anyone with colour deficient vision. We’ve checked the site’s font and background colour to ensure there are no combinations against the different colour blindness conditions and ensured that all information is still clear.

We’ve designed all pages on our website so that all information that is conveyed with colour is also available without colour.

Font and text size

While we’ve used clear, legible font for all text and headings. In the Firefox browser, select View, then Text Size, and then choose increase, or decrease.

Style sheets

This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. Where possible, we’ve also made our website navigable, usable and readable if your browsing device does not support style sheets.

Non-text elements

Providing alternatives for non-text elements gives visually impaired and screen-reader users wider access to our website.

Images, videos and other non-text elements

We’ve made it possible to use our site without having to view graphics or images. All non-text elements, such as images, animations, symbols, audio, video and multimedia have text equivalents. We’ve done this by providing descriptive alt attributes for them. Purely decorative graphics or formatting images have empty alt attributes.


Our website uses JavaScript to improve usability and the online shopping experience. To help you use the site, we’ve created alternative non-JavaScript pages for the most critical pages.

Links and navigation

Structuring a website so it is simple and streamlined to use helps to improve the experience for all. For example, placing page items in a logical order and making the website easy to navigate helps people with visual impairments, motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities.


We’ve made navigation links consistent between pages throughout the site. The site is also fully accessible using only the keyboard and can be navigated with scripting disabled.

Pop-up windows

Our website does not use pop-up windows unless they are appropriate. Acceptable cases, for example, are when it is important to see the browser window you’ve just navigated from in the background.

Forms and tables

Clearly labelled tables help readers to understand the content on a page and to fill in content into correct form fields.


Although there are a limited number of critical pages on this site which use frames, we try not to use frames as they are a barrier to accessibility. Any frames which we do use have descriptive titles to help screen readers to make sense of the content of the page.

Fantastic place to learn salsa. I started about 9 months ago at almost bigger level and now people I dance with think I've been doing it for years! The teachers have such great energy, always positive and upbeat, exactly what I need after a long days work! Would 100% recommend

We decided to perform Salsa at our wedding and Maria was absolutely fantastic. She really helped us relax and choreographed a wonderful routine for us. on the night we'd also arranged for salsa dancing and teaching and everyone got up and joined in. super memorable night and would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to learn.

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!
