Come and find out why we have students driving from as far as the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast every week to attend our classes in Brisbane!

Got "two left feet"? Great! You're perfect for our 4-week Introduction to Latin Dancing course. We start by shifting our weight from one foot to the other. Then you will learn to dance authentic Salsa RAPIDLY with the Black Belt Salsa(tm) system of instruction, our friendly instructors and lots of laughs.

Are you a bloke? Great! We always need more blokes in our classes. The ladies always appreciate the men who come along to the classes.

Note: This course normally attracts 20-30 students

It's fun, it's social and it'll get you moving! So try Latin dancing by coming to our fun and welcoming 4-week Introduction to Latin Dancing course.


You can dance Salsa and Brazilian Zouk at social Latin Dance parties in Brisbane EVERY WEEK. If you enjoy travelling, Salsa and Zouk open up a worldwide network of friends and opportunities. This course will take you from "two left feet" to being able to understand and dance the basics of Australia's most popular Latin dance styles anywhere in the world.

No partner? No problem! Couples and singles are welcome. Ages 15 welcome. Escape the summer heat in our air-conditioned studio.

    "James teaches a progressive syllabus with step by step instructions which are easy to follow, he has friendly assistants who offer positive encouragement and students who keep coming back for more. It really has opened up a whole new world of fun, friendship and dancing! If you have ever wondered about learning Latin dance, check out Dance Culture for some awesome classes which will have you social dancing in no time!" - Liz

    "I never thought I'd willingly learn to dance but I'm so glad I did. Everyone I've met at Dance Culture have all been friendly and supportive." - Patrick

    "The passion for latin dancing is something that shines through at Dance Culture during every class and it's highly infectious. You have a great teacher, some lovely people and a welcoming environment. I cannot recommend this school highly enough. Give Dance Culture a go, and you might not only come to enjoy salsa and/or zouk, you might become slightly addicted to it (like me!)" - AJ

    "Have been attending their salsa course for nearly 4 months now, really enjoyed the way they teach and motive me as a beginner. The dance floor is super clean and comfy. With the humorous teaching style, I felt learning is so enjoyable. I have to say that the time and money are well invested in this adventure!" - Steven

    "I really love the culture part of dance culture. Everyone is friendly and respectful of each other on and off the dance floor. I've danced and assisted many schools over the years and I have to say this is the best to date." - Tonia

    "I had zero dance experience and was very nervous about trying a dance class. Dance culture immediately set me at ease and made me feel comfortable while building up my skills with a progressive syllabus over time. I loved the vibe and friendly energy of the classes and am very thankful for the increased confidence in myself, and all the new friends and experiences i have gained through dancing. I never imagined that I could dance or would even enjoy it, but it has become a passion that I love! I highly recommend coming and trying it out." - Paul

    "I feel that James has a clear picture of what I should look like and what moves I should be able to perform at any given time. That way I never feel like I am drowning and his senior students are super supportive too!!! I will be a member for life." - Daniel

    "James is an excellent teacher who brings his passion, humour and wit to the floor ensuring that every learner dancer feels involved. No matter what the level, the syllabus and speed of which it moves goes with the learners. Highly recommended dance school for learners of all ages. Thankyou James and all of your volunteers who make it fun to learn" - Michelle

    "The advanced salsa classes with Madalyn and James have been a fantastic experience! The atmosphere in classes is friendly and fun, yet motivates you to constantly work on your technique and improve. The instructors are helpful, patient and have very high standards. My dancing has become much better thanks to them!" - Kasia
