Welcome to the Queen Mary Salsa Society! 

Hi everyone! :) 

If you are a latin dance lover or a complete beginner that would like to learn salsa and bachata, this society is for you! 

We have weekly classes of salsa, many socials as well as a Performance Team that goes to university competitions and does performances at famous places and events! 


Why come learn with us:

  • Salsa society is a very open club. It’s a great way to meet new people while having fun and discovering the Latin American culture. Everyone is lovely and we have the best of fun! 
  • We have regular clases for begginers.
  • This year we have two peformance teams - couples salsa and ladies bachata. 
  • Intermediates can audition to join either performance teams and compete across UK or abroad.
  • In each class we learn new steps that we can practice among ourselves or go to a salsa bar together or during events with other universities. 
  • We organise external events and trips around the UK for latin events such as reggaeton nights, or salsa-bachata festivals. 
  • We organise very fun socials!
