our style of salsa

The style of Salsa that we teach is called "Mambo" or Salsa On2. There are many different styles of Salsa that exist, but we focus specifically on Mambo. Many other studios in our city teach Salsa On1 and we want to make sure that you have the opportunity to learn more than one style in Milwaukee.

Our instructors & studio owners have been training in Mambo for over 6 years! They continue to train and travel throughout the United States, Canada & Mexico; in order to bring more technique, movement fundamentals, and history to Milwaukee dancers. 

What to Wear/Bring?

- Comfortable clothing to dance in
- Positive attitude :) 
- Water bottle
- Comfortable NON-street shoes (Latin dance shoes, jazz shoes, ballet flats, socks, barefoot)

(street shoes are forbidden on our dance floor)
