Salsa Memphis hosts beginners’ lessons each Monday and Thursday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
At Salsa Memphis, renowned dancer and choreographer Edgar "TunTun" Mendez leads each lesson, deploying skills he attained through years of dancing as a professional, performing onstage with Tito Puente and onscreen for Marc Anthony, as well as in salsa congresses and competitions. Within his airy, yellow-walled studio, Mendez shows students of all ages and ability levels how to perform a range of fast-paced, seductive salsa moves, beginning with basic steps, right and left turns, and cross-body leads. Intermediate and advanced lessons are designed for those ready to move on to more complex combinations, such as how to dip a partner in an airplane aisle. A private lesson bestows fledgling dancers with focused one-on-one time with the salsa professor for quicker learning and personalized tips. Lessons can be taken at the student's convenience, allowing dancers to learn on their own time as opposed to adhering to a weekly schedule.

“Wear comfortable clothes and please men, wear deodorant! You will sweat! You will end up dancing with everyone there a few times! Not just your partner, but if you are like me, I went alone. Still fine as someone dances with the instructor. I loved it! If you are shy when you get there, you won't be by the time you leave! Great time!”
