Havana Estudio > Salsa Division > Salsa FAQ

Q: Why learn Salsa dancing?

A: Nowadays, knowing how to Salsa dance is an essential social skill! Most people who learn our style of Salsa really enjoy social dancing. It's a great way to exercise, meet new people, and an immediate ice-breaker when you can show off some basic moves to your friends!

Q: What are your studio credentials?

A: We don't like to list out our competitive success, invitationals to Salsa congresses and festivals in Malaysia and worldwide, and try to hard-sell you why we're awesome. We'd like to focus on our students, many of whom are still dancing after years and years. We prefer to emphasize what our students say (see Student Testimony on right), and how they enjoy our classes. And lots and lots of social dancing, of course!

Q: What's your teaching style?

A: We are known for our caring and passionate instructors, who emphasize teaching good fundamentals in a fun atmosphere. Many students come to us without ever stepping foot into any dance club. And learn how to dance like there's no tomorrow! We will guide you from classroom to practice time to social dancing - your entire Salsa exprience!

Q: I have absolutely no experience in dancing! But I am very keen...

A: Most people who take our Salsa "Beginner 1" or Level 1 class have zero dance experience. So, don't worry most people are just like you. While there will always be some with some students who join our classes with dance experience, everyone progresses together. Just do it - you won't regret it!!

Q: How much are classes?

A: RM240 cash will take care of you for 8 consecutive weeks, 1 class a week, 1 hour a class. Nothing else, that's it. In celebrating our 14th Anniversary, we are offering special rate of RM200 for our Salsa "Beginner 1" classes. Call us!

Q: When can I start?

A: All students start from the 1st class of an intake, and we have new intakes starting every month.

Q: Please tell me more about classes...

A: We go very slowly, we break it down, and do lots of repetition. A lot of students make friends in class, come early or stay back after class to practice... it's really fun! When you find the beat and start practicing, time passes really fast!

Q: So what do I do now?

A: Do drop by our studio, come check us out... if you like what you see, then by all means complete your registration form with your class fees, and this will confirm a place for you in our next intake!

Q: Can I make bookings over the phone?

A: Yes, of course! While registration will be confirmed on a 1st paid 1st served bases, we'll definitely keep you updated. We always want to encourage you to please come in person to our studio. Do register with payment early to avoid disappointment!

As one student put it to us, "it all started at Havana Estudio". We sincerely hope to guide you in your Salsa journey and help you form some wonderful dance memories, at Havana Estudio...
