Description of Learn Spanish and Salsa in Granada, Spain

Get your mind and body fit for the good life in Granada as you embark on an exciting week of languages and Salsa dancing workshops in southern Spain.

Salsa is a great way to get into the rhythm of local life and invites opportunities to make new friends, laugh with local people and enhance your Spanish skills as you click and sway into the warmth of the evening.

We offer a couple of salsa styles: LA Style and New York Style both of which focus on Salsa en Línea and Bachata Sensual. Basically, you’ll be learning to salsa as part of a line of dancers which stands in contrast to the rotating equivalent for couples, Salsa Cubana. We will also aim to progress deeper into Bachata Sensual by learning new techniques and special steps.

This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

We offer this package in collaboration with local Salsa dancers. The courses are given in a dance studio which is in walking distance to the school. Participants do not need any public transport to get to the classes.

Nowadays local communities in Granada use the worldwide growing interest in Salsa music and dancing to get more benefits for the local people and to discover again the deep relationship between Spanish and Latinamerican culture. In this case part of the benefits of the Salsa courses are invested in the maintenance of this dancing school and its teachers who are also the owners.

Today, more than ever, we believe in the incredible importance of travelling. It's only by travelling and meeting new people that we begin to understand that we all share the same world. So how do we make that ride not just a quick fairground twirl, but something that we can enjoy for our travelling lives and pass on to future generations? By changing our travel habits and thinking differently about how, where and why we travel. Responsible travel means assessing our effect on the environment, local cultures and economies, and acting in a way that makes our impact as positive as possible.

We are a non-profit co-operative organization whose members each participate in the decision-making process of the school. Our permanent teaching team is responsible for the entire Spanish course programme. The school is managed and directed by three coordinators. All of our teachers are native speakers with university degrees, and they are specialists in teaching Spanish as a foreign language. They also participate in teacher training courses in Spain on a regular base, in order to be able to employ the latest learning methods and materials. Theses courses are paid by the school. All cooperative members receive the same salary. Our aim is to create a lively and stimulating relationship between teachers, coordinators, staff and students. This atmosphere of warmth and sharing ensures rapid progress in a short time.

The Impacts of this Trip

Our students have the opportunity to dance Salsa together with local people.

We endeavor, if requested, to find a suitable language partner from Granada who is learning your native language. This enhances the language learning process, promotes intercultural exchange between locals and our students, and encourages autodidactic learning methods. Due to the economical crisis in Spain, local students can't pay language courses at private schools. Our lingüístic exchange programme is free of charge and helps them to improve their language sills.

That means: an intensive Spanish course in the morning, together with Salsa dancing together with local students during the evenings plus the participation in our language exchange programme improves the language learning process and also promotes intercultural exchange between locals and our students.

In general all fees paid by the students for cultural activities go entirely to local guides and companies. The school only charges a small commission to cover the administration expenses.

Many thanks for your comments. The students should have some skills to dance Salsa en Línea, even if it is a beginner course. As these classes are given in a dance studio, together with local people, it might be difficult if the participants have not any knowledge.
