Ivy's Latin Night Event!

Nicole Gil

We were thrilled to host Ivy's Latin Night Event in Santa Monica. The night kicked off with h'ordeuvres, networking and latin music. As the crowed started to build, Dance Salsa LA put a short show on to help motivate attendees to take the salsa lesson. After an exciting Beginner Level lesson we answered questions and danced with students late into the night.

We look forward to the next Ivy Connect event!

Intermediate Salsa Program Week 11

Nicole Gil

If you are wondering what level is the appropriate one for you, check out our Intermediate Class' "Salsa Final".

At the end of the 3-month Program we combine all of the combos we learned over the 3 months and remove any basics. Our goal is to have everyone be able to perform all the material back to back without any breaks and our students nail it every time!!
