I would like to recommend Salsa and Bachata classes with Sam and Natalie in Durham. They are wonderful teachers. I had very good time learning Salsa and Bachata with them. Their classes are very enjoyable, you always have fun and good mood while you are learning. Thank you for teaching me! I will never stop dancing  It makes life better. If you fancy to learn dancing please join Sam and Natalie (Samalie).

Great venues, good teachers, good music and a lot of lovely people to dance with! Beginner or more experienced? No problem at all, there's something for everyone. What more do you want..?

We always enjoy going to X Salsa. We often go to both The Oak and The Ship which gives us a lovely opportunity to dance, spend time with our friends and make new friends too. We also enjoy going to Saturday party nights.

Tuesday nights with Xsalsa in The John Duck, Durham City are always fantastic; lots of fun, lovely people and great teachers. It is a great night out with two classes and then social dancing afterwards. I would recommend it to everyone from new starters to more experienced dancers

I've been going to X Salsa's Tuesday nights in Durham for 5 weeks, and can't believe how quickly I'm learning. While classes are quite fast paced at times, Sam is a really patient teacher when you're finding it tough. Emma's just gorgeous to watch dancing, I really enjoy what she brings to lessons. I've been touched by how kind the more experienced dancers are, it feels like I've joined a warm and generous community. I highly recommend X Salsa to learn Salsa, to enjoy some social dancing, and to meet some really lovely people.

"In the mood" for Salsa I've been to few different Salsa venues around the North East and this place has to be one of the best. Don't need a partner with you and there's a great fun atmosphere. They play some cracking music and the lessons are good as well -> since i've been going i've learnt a hell of a lot! It's billed as the "friendliest place in the North East for Salsa" and i can see why.

Latin action! One of the best places for salsa in the North East...! Why? Staff and teachers are very friendy and supportive. Great music and frequently they hold parties which are great with fruit buffets and bubbly! Great party atmosphere! Well worth giving it a go!! If you are a beginner don't fear this is the best place you can start to learn!
