Top Shelf Dance Studio


Group courses begin with Level I for beginners and advance in difficulty with each level. Classes are designed to progress each week building on the previous week’s material.  Each class will begin with a review of the previous week’s material before progressing.  With this method, a participant may miss 1 class and still be able to participate comfortably.  It is not necessary to bring your own partner, as participants rotate partners regularly to focus on  "lead & follow" while reinforcing foot patterns and creating muscle memory.

  • Salsa is a rich blend of Latin-American and Western influences; including Western and Ballroom dancing.  There are three major salsa styles, namely Cuban Salsa ("Casino"), New York Style ("Mambo on 2"), and Los Angeles Style ("On 1").

  • Bachata originated in the Dominican Republic and has a four-step beat achieved with a walking Cuban hip motion, and a unique “hip lift".

  • Merengue also originated in the Dominican Republic.  Partners may circle each other, in small steps, or switch to an open position and do a variety of turns and patterns.
