A club dedicated to the development of Cuban Salsa in Cambridge, its surroundings, and beyond. This website is maintained primarily by DJ Sacha. Cambridge Cuban Salsa promotes and provides weekly salsa classes and monthly salsa parties locally and throughout the UK. In Cambridge, CCS operates salsa classes on Thursdays and salsa classes on Sundays. We can also recommend other salsa classes, DJs and events in the Cambridge area and in East Anglia.

NIKOLA MEDIC & DANIELLE SATSIAS
Everyone who attended Nikola and Dani's workshop at the AfroSalsa Dance Festival asked us "oh please please please bring them back to Cambridge". Their classes are a fantastic blend of irresistible humour and sound technical advice, the kind which will inspire you with quite a few revelations about Cuban salsa as seen from a clever and witty point of view. No convinced yet? Just have a look at this:
No need to present "Ary the Professor" in Cambridge anymore, as he has been regularly with us for some fantastic monthly classes at the Cambridge Cuban Salsa Sundays since the past three years. Genuine Cuban flavour mixed with the expertise of a highly qualified teacher: you get the best of everything. Ariel is regularly invited to teach and perform at international congresses such as the one below in Riga:
THE CAMBRIDGE CUBAN SALSA SUNDAYS
The classes are followed by the usual Cuban Salsa party, which has been rocking the Cuban scene in Cambridge for the past four years. Brilliant music is supplied by DJ Sacha whose fresh yet up to date selection of danceable Cuban music has been validated by invitations to play at the most prestigious of the UK's Cuban congresses such as the Bournemouth International Cuban Salsa Congress, the Tropicalentura South Wales Cuban Congress and the AfroCuban Pati weekender series.
