Emerald Coast Dancesport
226 SE Miracle Strip Pkwy
Fort Walton Beach, FL

NO PARTNER NEEDED for this class...
Add some solo moves to your Salsa
We are having such a blast with this class!! Check it out for yourself :D
Why take a group class??? Because, learning to dance by yourself helps develop your individual balance and timing, making you a stronger partner--whether you're the leader or follower--and helps you develop your own style, your flavor to your salsa, which carries over to the other dances
Open to the public...all levels welcome, from beginner to advanced -- please feel free to share this event with your friends and family
Cost: $10 at the door

PARKING: For those who haven't been here before, we're on the corner of 98 and Perry next to Barefoot Weddings. There is parking on Perry Avenue (in front of Brava Salon and Ballet) as well as all of Brooks Street. Behind Northwest Florida Ballet is a public parking lot (you can come in back door if want). Also across the street between Mulhollow's and Adonna's bakery is all public parking.
There are other public parking lots, but that should be sufficient
