Where you'll be

First I will take you to the salsa school located in Getsemani to teach you dance lessons for two hours, it is a very comfortable school with air conditioning and a lot of space to dance, then I will take you to one of the best clubs where they play Champeta music called "awacoco" "to practice what you learned, and later I'll show you another disco called Vueltabajero which is an expert in salsa.

Salsa dancing with Luis and his dancing partner Carolina was one of my favorite experiences in Cartagena. It was a very intimate experience and we met at a nice waterfront location. Carolina and Luis were very patient with my cousin and I who are both beginners and made it very easy and comfortable. We had a lot of fun and shared lots of laughs. I left Cartagena a better dancer. Thank you Luis and Carolina!

This was an amazing experience. Louis and his dance partner are very professional. It was great to dance outside and we really learned the basics pretty well. After the dancing class they stayed with us, we had some food together and they joined us to the club. Which was a whole new experience as well. They were so kind and so motivated to get us to dance it was infectious and made us dance indeed!

Luis and his partner Carolina were great! Fun learning experience in the outdoor followed by a fun night at the club. You may not be an expert after one class, but they will make sure you will have fun. Luis went beyond the class and checked on later at night, which was very nice of him. Gracias Luis o Carolina! A great experience

Fun experience. At first we weren't sure if we were going to do this experience because my friend was sick, but we ended up doing it. Luis was very accommodating and made arrangements even after i initially was going to cancel. Luis came towards the end of our lesson, but we had an amazing instructor Carolina. She was very patient and a great teacher. The price is a bit steep but hey it's an experience.

Luis and Carolina are amazing because they made me feel like a friend. Not only I was able to learn colombian salsa and champeta but learned little history of dancing and they took me out to clubs, became friends and spend rest of the night at the bar watching UFC fight. Highly recommend this experience.

Luis led a great class for me and my group of 4. The best part of class was after the instructional portion when we visited a disco and got to put our new moves to use. I definitely reccomend this class to beginners and those looking to brush up on their skills.
