“ I knew as soon as I saw the ad for the Seniorita’s program that it was something I HAD sign up for. I tried other Latin dance type programs and they were not great – either too fast, too much complicated footwork, or nothing even resembling real Latin Dance. I have never been a great dancer but I can keep the beat and I love music and moving. I love to learn and try new things, and this is by far, the only Seniors dance fitness program I would recommend”
If you love to dance and move and you are looking for a great way to stay active and build some new skills, then you will LOVE the program. Our programs do not require any dance or fitness experience and are designed with YOU having fun in mind….we guarantee you’ll love it!
Because we have 2 distinctly different programs available, there isn’t really an age limit – AND all levels of mobility are welcome!
You will find that our standard Senioritas program is great for even up-and-coming Senioritas ( have a teenager and want to do the program together? Perfect!)
Our Seniorita’s at Home program is designed specifically to meet the needs of those in care facility’s who may or may not need to use mobility aids.
It is best to come to class prepared to move around. Comfy clothes, running shoes, or if you have them, dance sneakers work well. It is strongly recommended to bring a bottle of water for yourself.
If you have any mobility aids you need to use for stability please also bring these.
While we can use chairs or other stability assists (barres on the wall), you may feel comfortable with your own aids also.
In fact we believe SO heavily in the safety component of our program that we invested heavily in multiple Seniors Fitness training programs for our course developers to ensure we didn’t miss a thing.
As well, each class Instructor must achieve a 90% pass rate on their training, which is heavily focused on working with and moving with seniors in a fitness and dance capacity.
Yes! Most people who take the class have never danced Salsa before, and many have no dance experience at all. We break the steps down so that anyone can join, and we review the basics each class. The most important thing to keep in mind is that it’s not about perfection, but getting moving, enjoying the music and having fun!
Want to add even more fun to your night? Bring a friend and make a night of it together!
Salsa Seniorita’s classes are designed to accommodate all levels of fitness. We know that some participants are in excellent shape, whereas others may have health or mobility challenges. You can participate at your own pace. We teach a basic program and offer adaptations for those looking to increase the intensity.
Salsa Babies understands that it is not always possible to attend and entire session of classes….life is busy and there is a lot of fun to be had! Therefore, we offer one (1) make-up class per session to accommodate for missed classes. This class can be used during the subsequent session or at another location. We aim to be flexible, so please speak with your instructor if you have any questions.
