Have you danced before or do you just feel like you have two left feet? No matter your dance ability or skill level, at Latin Dance Australia (LDA) our professional instructors have got all the right tools up their sleeves to get your feet moving and your hips grooving to make learning to Latin Dance one of the most fun filled experiences you will ever have. 

It’s almost impossible to list the many benefits that can be enjoyed by incorporating dance into your life – but one thing you can be sure of; there is an abundance of laugher, fun and great new friends that will join you on your dancing journey!

“I have always been a shy person. By coming to Latin Dance Australia and joining in to the many dance classes and community of fun loving people, I have found confidence that has helped me not just on the dance floor but also at work and in general with life” L.M

:: Which style of Latin dance should you start with:
If you are looking to learn a partner dance, probably the Salsa Beginners course (7-8 weeks) is the most recommended for you.
From here you will get to experience the studio atmosphere, the instructors and become a part of our exciting Latin dance community. 
Salsa is still the most popular social dance style around Sydney/Australia so it's the best place to begin your dancing journey.
Alternatively, if you would like to experience the full latin dance world we recommend you to join one of our memberships and try all the beginners classes available.

How it works?

:: The Class Structure
Each Latin Dance class is a 7-8 week course. Each week you will build on to the week before and like building blocks you will soon stack up to be a confident latin dancer showing off your skill on the dance floor with rhythm and groove!
After a full 7 – 8 week course, if you feel you have mastered the dance techniques you may progress to the next level. (Example: Salsa has 7 levels)
Repeating a level is a common thing, so if you feel that you need some more practice don’t hesitate to do the new level and repeat the old level at the same time. The class times are scheduled with this in mind.
You may choose to take private lessons to help you master your dancing skills and techniques faster, with one of your instructors.
To become a Latin Dancer and enjoy the social clubs it is recommended that you learn all the Styles offered at LDA.  After all you don’t want to be sitting around at a club not being able to dance because a Zouk song comes on and all you have learnt is Salsa. Check out our timetable for all the class times.
Performance courses are the next step if you are looking to challenge yourself. LDA offers performance courses at least 3 times per year to all levels of Latin Dancers in all styles of Latin Dance.
