Here are some of the many classes all over the country offering Cuban salsa or other Cuban dance classes. We have mentioned where they are taught by Cuban teachers. Of course there are many other dance teachers who are qualified and experienced and will give you an excellent grounding in Cuban dance. We can’t vouch for the quality of any of the classes. You just need to try it out and see if it suits you. This is not a definitive list, of course…let us know your recommendations and any that are not already listed.
