Salsa has been around in Edinburgh for nearly
10 years, with regular clubs and classes. In the last few years salsa
has become popular everywhere not least in Edinburgh, and is no
longer the preserve of afficionados. Edinburgh has clubs and bars
where salsa is played every night, and there are classes for all
levels and in different styles.
If you want to learn salsa, try one of the
classes run in the bars and clubs. If you like it , then there are
many different teachers, try out their classes to see if you like
their style and the people in the group. Visit the Salsaholics website for info on classes etc
