We had a fantastic day! Alistair is a great teacher. We were all dancing by the end of the day! My husband hadn’t done much salsa before. I am a trained dancer but never had an actual salsa lesson and found the method Alistair used...More

Alastair has a very effective way of teaching the class. He had patience and made sure everyone got to correct their mistakes. By the end of the class we all managed to learn the steps while having fun. Would recommend the class to everybody, including...More
I really enjoyed my lesson - the class is well taught and (despite being a rather 'shy' dancer) I felt encouraged and supported enough to build my confidence and learn a new skill!
The only suggestion I have is that I would have personally liked...More
The salsa lesson was fun, however the food was awful. The restaurant is too busy, the staff can’t cope. The food gets delivered to you cold and tasteless. The fajitas come with lots of peppers and 4 thin pieces of meat. When you speak to...More

This review should be for the venue Salsa Soho and not the Salsa Rapido 1-Day Intensive Course.
I feel it's unfair to review of my class based on the catering which is not included in the course and in no way connected to my class....More
A really enjoyable and useful day. Alastair is a gifted teacher with a deep understanding of education (not just salsa), and it really shows. He set everyone at ease, and made sure we had plenty of opportunities to understand what we were learning, consolidate it,...More
Alastair was a brilliant teacher. The whole class learnt the basics while having lots of fun. At the end of the session we were all able to dance with different partners and had enough knowledge to build upon for the future. Loved it so much...More

An unforgettable experience. We learned the basics of salsa in just one day combined with loads of humor, lessons of life, romantizism, laughter, great food and lots of new friends. Alistair is unique! Highly recommended 😁
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated
by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
