At Salsa Central Denver, “Dance isn’t a form, it’s a way of life.” With that said, Denver-based salsa enthusiasts can relish in the fact that it is easy, affordable, and low pressure at Salsa Central Denver. In fact, this is probably the absolute best place in Denver to take salsa lessons!
Salsa Central Denver (SCD) was started in 1996 by Malina Farias as a simple monthly newsletter and e-mail that informed members of anything salsa-related in the Denver area. However, SCD quickly transformed into a premier salsa music and dancing community that holds weekly dance gatherings in the Denver metro area. SCD also hosts a wide array of annual events like the Red & White Salsa Ball, Summer Salsa Bash, and the Holiday Fling. SCD is fun for salsa dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.
The SCD Salsa Social takes place at the Denver Turnverein, 1570 Clarkson Street, Denver, and continues to create an immense enthusiasm for salsa dancing among Denver residents of all races and backgrounds. By being located at the Denver Turnverein, SCD has an official home and can provide members with high quality instruction and unparalleled passion for salsa dancing.
Weekly Salsa Socials provide low pressure, fun instruction for students of any skill level and are helping to form a close knit salsa community in Denver. Salsa Socials are usually on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:00pm at the Denver Turnverein and costs $5 for members and $10 for non-members. Classes are available for beginners, intermediates, and advanced salsa dancers. Bachata (Dominican style) dance lessons are downstairs at 8:30pm on Wednesday nights for $5.
Rather than paying for each salsa lesson individually, the Denver Turnverein offers annual memberships at an incredible value. The 2011 price schedule for an annual membership is as follows:
$34 Senior (65 and older)/Student (with photo ID)/Active Military
Memberships can be purchased (cash or check) at Salsa Central Denver’s weekly Salsa Social or online at: http://www.denverturnverein.org/dnn/DanceChorusArtGroups/TurnvereinCommittees/Membership.aspx
