This event is not happening today (see salsa calender for more events)

Overview:

Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced salsa lessons by Tiffany Wu, with the focus of leading and following skills, which enables one to dance with anyone with ease and style.

Classes are held as progressive series in the first 4 Saturdays of every month. Every month, a new Salsa dance sequence is taught and reviewed through the 4-week period. Body movement and styling tips are incorporated to the sequences, and so are leading and following techniques (what makes a true social dancer).

Tiffany is a great instructor, and always teaches patterns geared towards social dancing. The classes follow a monthly progression cycle, but drop-ins are welcome. She usually starts with a footwork pattern, then continues with partnerwork, building upon what was taught earlier in the month. The classes are small, which contributes to rapid learning, especially because the leaders get to dance with Tiffany several times, and receive helpful tips and guidance.

Eight folks from my college take salsa lessons from Tiffany and her folks. We love the classes!! We find our teachers and the environment nurturing to the beginners while still challenging to the more advanced students.

I’ve taken salsa classes from different instructors in the Bay Area. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on my quest to dance salsa with flavor! (con sabor!)
I’ve attended venues and classes in San Jose, Fremont, Mountain View, Oakland and San Francisco. I recommend Salsa with Tiffany to any of my friends that want to learn Salsa on 1. At the same time, I also recommend John & Liz (Oakland) and Helen & JC (Fremont/San Jose) super talented.
Tiffany and staff are very supportive, friendly and kind. They will make you feel at home during class. They promote good salsa with friendship, unity and fun. Attend their potluck Saturday salsa class, awesome!
If you see them on a social, I recommend to ask any one in “Salsa with Tiffany” crew to dance. They’re super approachable, so don’t be shy. The first thing you’ll get from any of them is a smile.
The salseros in the Bay Area are so lucky to have so many talented Salsa instructors to learn from. I love salsa! Salsa saved my life :)
Keep on dancing! Con sabrosura mami!

Well, what can I say? The best salsa teacher I ever had. She knows both leading and following and very graceful when she dances. Her knowledge of the dance and skill level are beyond excellent. Classes are great from beginning to end. Very approachable and always giving students feedback on how to improve. She teaches from the heart. Highly recommend!

I took my very first salsa lesson with Tiffany in January. Tiffany is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. Prior to Tiffany’s class, I never took a formal dance class nor had any experience with partner dancing. The class was very easy to follow and the culture of the class is non pretentious or intimidating for a starter like me. With her lessons, I was able to start the intermediate class one month later and now am able to confidently take the advance class as well as her new Cha Cha, Bachata, and Ladies Styling class. Her skills and passion has inspired me. When I started in January, I would have never imagined how much fun salsa dancing was. It takes a great instructor to bring out a love of a subject and Tiffany has done just that with me.

Tiffany’s classes are fun and friendly for the beginners. Her advance salsa class and ladies styling workshops are jam packed with techniques. She is willing to share her knowledge of salsa dancing generously. A few students from the class say the reason they keep coming to her classes is because they get to dance with her and her assistants during the classes, which helps them with their learning curves, and makes them improve faster.

Teaching is fine. Salsa style doesn’t look very Latin the way she does it. Maybe more of a ballroom look or something?

The big issue is I overheard her and her “friend” making fun of a social dancer at an event. Really childish. Won’t support that kind of thing.

I’d recommend trying the instructors at Just Dance Ballroom on Monday nights (Jon and Liz)

If you want to learn Salsa, this is the place to do it. Typically when you go to a salsa class, all the students form a large circle with leaders partnered with followers. The instructor or instructors stand in the middle and demonstrate a dance move. The students then do their best to repeat the move. After a minute, or two you rotate partners. Unfortunately, you don’t always do the move correctly, and the person you are dancing with is trying to figure out the move as well. The more you rotate through partners the more frustrating it can get. Ugh!!! However, when you learn with Tiffany, you dance with Tiffany, and her awesome team consisting of Choy, Ling and Joe. In addition, her advanced students, intermediate students and her show team, typically attend the beginner class, so as a beginner you are consistently receiving positive encouragement while learning proper technique. This is a great place to learn! Thank you Tiffany & Team!

I have taken classes for quite some time now and I can honestly say that the attention you will receive is alot more than in most salsa classes. If you truly want to learn you will get the help you need. For me it is not only the attention but the warm enviornment that has caused me to stay and to consistently keep coming back,opposed to other places I have been( I have taken classes all over the bay and peninsula ).
Overall the classes are fun and Tiffany is super kind! I highly recommend!

Awesome class. It is a big class but the instructors pay a huge attention to details. You feel like you are getting individual attention constantly.
