Casa Salsa untames tethered toes, liberating bodies to the up-tempo Latin rhythms of salsa and the sultry, Dominican-influenced sounds of bachata. A roster of full-time, dedicated instructors school student steppers boasting beginner to advanced dance-floor credentials with a schedule of weekday and Saturday classes. Casa Salsa separates its 60-minute group salsa lessons by levels of experience. Beginners may feel more comfortable and have more attention paid to basic footwork and leading-and-following patterns, and advanced dancers can focus their time on styling, body isolations, and finales that feature a 30-yard knee slides. The private salsa lesson suits both individuals who are looking to ease into salsa's cilantro-infused waters and couples seeking an active hour's refuge from evenings spent piling loose change into towering coffee-table columns..
Casa Salsa seeks to nurture a dancing community from within its studios' walls. Casa Salsa founder and owner Christian Espinola—a performer at the New York Salsa Congress and Miami Heat halftime shows—hosts monthly outings for students and helped organize a local flash mob, in which unsuspecting mall shoppers were bombarded with impressive Latin choreography instead of the inelegant sashays of pushy jewelry vendors.
As a rising star in the salsa circuit, Casa Salsa's founder Christian Espinola has danced across stages around the country—including the New York Salsa Congress and Miami Heat halftime shows.
