Learn How to Dance Salsa in Medellin

Where to learn how to dance Salsa in Medellin?

When I moved to Colombia I already loved dancing but when I say dancing I rathe mean jumping around an move a little to the beats of hip hop, electro or reggae. But probably lots of people out there notice since they are or were in Colombia that going out means also dancing with a partner and I am not talking about that drunk dancing at 3 o’clock in the morning in a club that should rather be taken to the bedroom or that kind of dancing with a partner that you whilst reggae ton tunes are coming from the speakers. No I am talking about Salsa, Merengue and Bachata the common dances that you see people dancing in Medellin and entire Colombia. I never thought I would go to a dance school but in order to meet new people and because I didn’t want to stand around like an idiot anymore whilst every other person is having fun on the dance floor, I decided to give it a shot and as it turned out I love dancing in pairs. Since my first day at the school Magia des Tus Bailes in Envigado I became a huge fan of salsa and also bachata that most people most likely know from the music group Aventura.

After a few group lessons and learning the basic steps I wanted to take it to the next level and speed up my progress and started private classes with the great teacher Diana. Like this I could be also a little more flexible regarding my working hours and get used to my dance partner. Diana is a very good and patient teacher and she even managed to teach me, a German Salsa. My new objective now is to learn Bachata.

  1. I found Salsa Classes Medellin to be the best bet. Best prices in town since they are independent dancers, and great quality since they choose the best instructor for you out of a large community of professionals. Very flexible with timings and location which was convenient.
