1 DAY 

Updated 1st Nov

Our Sunday venue has a limited capacity, so there is a waiting list for our intensive courses and we are not advertising them. 

 Coming Soon: Learn Cuban Salsa Foundations in 1 Day (4h Intensive Course for Beginners). 

If you are interested please please call us


Next Dates:
- Sat 20th April & 18th May 2024 - 2 x Levels: Beginners / Improvers 2-Intermediates 1 /

You just can’t wait any longer to learn Salsa? Join us for 5 hours of expert salsa tuition with Esther Alvero and Antonio de Freitas, founders of Cubaneando and both former Tropicana Rueda World Champions. With over 20 years of experience teaching Cuban Salsa and creating high-end dance productions. Antonio and Esther are well renowned for their teaching methodology and attention to detail. They both put in a lot of dedication, love, and responsibility to teach authentic Cuban Salsa in such a manner, that even if you haven't danced in your life and you have two left feet, you will learn in a very organic, dynamic, and fun way. By the end of the day, you will be able to have enough repertoire to feel confident and hit the dance floor with a good Cuban foundation, which will also allow you to progress faster to the next levels.​

Ideal for those who simply cannot commit to regular classes and the ones that can't wait any longer to take up their Cuban Salsa to the next level!

Also, it is great and fun to socialize and meet new people and to know a bit better those who have come to the weekly classes.

6 years and still going so that tells you that they provide the best salsa classes. I have been to every Salsa Club in London and Cuba and the salsa you learn from these guys is gold standard.


Gracias por existir ... tu y Antonio!
