The time has come to bring Cuban salsa up to the next level in Cambridge: here is a unique opportunity to practice in a CLOSED GROUP for continuous progress with two of the most influential teachers available in the UK today!

Everyone who attended Nikola's workshop at the AfroSalsa Dance Festival 2012 last July asked us "oh please please please bring him back to Cambridge". His 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:

Nikola will be assisted in his classes by DANIELLE SATSIAS, who is known as one of the best female dancers of the Cuban scene in London.

No need to present "Ary the Professor" in Cambridge anymore, as he has been regularly with us for some fantastic monthly classes at the Sunday Salsa Lounge since the beginning of this year. 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 classes are followed by the usual Sunday Salsa Lounge Cuban party, which has been rocking the Cuban scene in Cambridge for the past two years, led by DjSacha whose knowledgeable and tasteful 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.

What's included in this 8 weeks master course:
This 8 weeks master class includes 1hr of weekly class in a CLOSED GROUP available only upon advance booking, from 18:30 to 19:30. Please note: the closed group is not suitable for beginners. If in doubt about your level, please contact DjSacha about it. Numbers will be strictly limited for the closed group, in order to get full attention from the teacher, and no extra admission will be taken once the course is started, in order to guarantee continuous progress. The closed group class will be followed by another hour in the form of the usual drop-in class with the invited teacher, from 19:30 to 20:30. Then the party will carry on until 23:30. You have the option to book the closed group only or a bundle with the drop-in class which will give you full access to the Sunday Salsa Lounge class and party for the months of October and November at a discounted rate. These options are available as two distinct packages:

  • Closed group only package: 2 months of Cuban salsa classes with top professional teachers in a closed group, including 6hrs tuition with Nikola Medic, 2hrs tuition with Ariel Rios, for a total of 8hrs in closed group.
