So, you have decided to take salsa dance lessons in Melbourne from a reputable dance studio. That’s great! But remember, though this particular dance style is intricate, electrifying, and passionate, still, there are certain rules to follow to do it just right.


  • A salsero should always maintain decorum and remain courteous before, during, and after a dance. To start it right, invite your partner and walk her to the dance floor as a true gentleman would. This becomes particularly essential when you see a lot of dancers already practicing elaborate and complex moves.
  • While taking classes, you will witness a lot happening on the dance floor. Try to observe what’s happening around you, while you and your partner move. Dedicated dancers will not only be well aware of the distance between them and their partners but also the distance between them and other people practicing around them.
  • Doing salsa, you need to show through your body and face, how excited you are. Smiling is the way to show how much you are enjoying yourself dancing with your partner. Being a multi-tasker, never forget to smile. When you and your partner smile at each other while dancing, it relieves all the stress that you might have regarding the dance technique.


  • Whether it’s an alcoholic drink or a non-alcoholic one, this rule applies to both. While consuming too much liquor before going to the dance class will end up making you ‘’a bit too free’’, where you will be at risk of losing all your self-control, consuming soft drinks will make you feel bloated. So, don’t drink a lot.
  • Don’t concentrate only on yourself, but connect well with your partner and see to it that they are comfortable dancing with you. Always keep in mind that salsa is a dance form that is basically performed by two individuals. There will be moments where you might get too excited and break into a solo performance, which will ultimately ruin the dance, considering you have a partner with you.
