Our Story

Our philosophy

Dancing is all about discovery, connection and fun

Running Latin Dance classes since 1999, we’re a mixed bag of professional dancers and business professionals with one thing in common: a passion for Latin Dance. We wield our skills with the aim to create a positive learning environment that is welcoming to everyone. We draw inspiration from our diversity, and each of us contribute to the fun and friendly environment we nurture in our school.

Learning for life

We like to think that when you choose to learn with us, you’ll learn more than how to dance. You’ll learn skills that you’ll take for life. At LDA, everyone is in a learning curve. When we say everyone, we mean every single one of us: students, instructors and directors. Dancing has its magical ways to develop confidence, self-esteem and social skills that go above and beyond the dance floor.

Come and pay us a visit. Your first week is on us!
Dancing is for everyone

We know how powerful dancing is, and how transforming it can be in people’s lives. Over the 20 years we’ve been teaching, we’ve witnessed the most fantastic stories of how dancing twisted things for the best, and that’s why we can say with confidence, that dancing is for everyone. Through dance you will discover more about yourself and how you connect with people. You’ll discover a new passion, make friends and be part of a community who are continuously learning, sharing and developing themselves. And if there is one thing that we can promise you, is that it’s lots of fun too!
