Get ready to go out and dance one of DC’s most popular social dances!
Sep 27-Oct 4 Salsa FUNTENSIVE® Bootcamp
NEW: Silver Line Stop .6 mile away!
September is our Annual Salsa Camp at Regency and Tyson’s Sport and Health!
Come join us for this fun progressive course in Salsa! No partner or previous experience necessary.
Experience the fun, spicy Salsa, and enjoy a great new way to meet people, exercise & dance!
Immersion is the best way to learn a dance; rather than one hour a week, you will complete 17.5 hours of lessons and practice in a one week course. Because the same professionals will be teaching the whole week, we will be able to give you a continuous build up. This course features a great deal of repetition of basic building blocks of salsa as well as exploration of some advanced concepts with the goal to raise the level of skill and knowledge for everyone.
Salsa is a great Latin dance with roots in Puerto Rico, Cuba, and New York City! Come join us so we can ramp up your salsa skills each night! You will learn basics, social skills, etiquette, and get exercise while doing so! By the end, you will have developed skills that will enable you to function socially at a salsa outing, and you will have an opportunity to try your new skills with your new group of friends on a group outing.
FULL CAMP (6 SESSIONs): $255 (singles)/ $425 (couples). Bootvets (previous attendees) 15% off!
ANY 4 SESSIONS: $185 (single) $325 (couples). Bootvets (previous attendees) 15% off!
SPECIAL: If a bootvet brings a new attendee at the regular price, he/she receives half off! See the last selection “1 Bootvet + 1 new attendee” for $352.50
NOTE: Prices rise at the door!
I hope to see many of you there. If you have been to past immersions, remember, every year we teach different movements, so you can still learn more.
