More Info:

Each week we repeat the former week's lesson AND learn something new! In Level 2+ (Intermediate+) you will learn a new pattern with a varying theme each month, with add-ons to challenge those who are in between Levels. Students are surprised at feeling so comfortable with the atmosphere - we have some of the friendliest dancers in the Bay Area! You will enjoy the recognizable beat of the Salsa music we play and gain confidence and skill with our progressive monthly series.

Each class starts with a one or two song fun warm-up. Come join us for a month...or longer! Many students have been with us for years and you can read their great reviews on Salsa with Juan's YELP page. Don't wait any longer to embark on a lifetime of fun, friends and dancing with the Salsa with Juan Family!

Never miss another salsa event!

Salsa with Juan classes are jokes. Sorry for those of you who want to learn “almost” nothing. I’ve taken lessons from several dance instructors and SWJ is by far my worst experience. Nothing is clear other than his jokes. The patterns he teaches are pieces of patterns I found on youtube. This review refers to his intermediate class. I’ll never go back to take any classes with him, I might as well sit at home and watch youtube videos and learn. Or just take any other Salsa classes in the East Bay, things cannot get any worse.
