In line with the social distancing policies currently in place at Goldsmiths, and the increasing infection rates of Covid-19 we will not be running any in-person training until such a time as it is safe to do so. Our club will continue to hold regular meetups via online platforms in the meantime, details of which will be communicated to registered members. To become a member please click the 'JOIN Term 1 Membership' icon to receive details. Additional updates will also be shared via our social media channels. We hope to be back to our normal schedule by the start of next term in January 2021.
Goldsmiths Salsa is your opportunity to try Latin dances (salsa, bachata, reggaeton) as well as hip hop, ballet and contemporary dances. Wether it is your first time or you’ve danced before! Salsa Club offers classes for Bachata and Salsa designed for all levels! It is a fun way to meet people and gain confidence on the dance floor. We offer classes all throughout the year on social and competition level with professional and highly recognised teachers. Pay the year membership and the classes turn out to be for less than a £5 per class!
Our memberships are ideal for beginners and improvers, offering weekly classes for Salsa ( Cali-Crossbody styles), Bachata (Sensual-Dominican styles), hip hop, contemporary and ballet classes. Welcome to all and ideal for fun relaxed classes to learn new moves and unwind from uni life.
You may pay your membership either for the whole academic year straight away or per term, depending what suits you personally! there will be an open class end of September but do not be alarmed if you miss it as we will offer any newcomer a free 1st class of all styles. Feel free to ontact us for more details.
This team offers you the opportunity to perform and compete across London universities, National Universities and other venues. Our performances so far have beeing very strong and we have come third and second places respectively in the Birmingham University competition in 2016-18. This year we are aiming for Gold!!!
The posibility is given to beginners/improvers to perform during the compeittion show without actually competing. This is a great way to get over stage frights and feel more confident for your next academic year to enter the actual competition!
