Our Values

At Salsabor, we believe family and friendship is everything. It helps people feel inspired to try something new, find their confidence, and achieve things they may not normally achieve on their own.

This is why we created a safe and welcoming space for our family, filled with people like you, to learn, be passionate, develop life-long friendships, be 100 per cent themselves and sometimes even find love.

Our uniting ingredient is Latin dance and Latin culture that we grew up living and breathing. If you are looking for a second home where you will learn to dance well and experience the Latin culture, you’ll find it at Salsabor.

Our Legacy

To create a ‘second home’ where students embrace a lifelong love of Latin dance and music through high quality instruction in a welcoming community.
