About

Who are we?

As the only Stanford-based group ded­i­cated to salsa, Los Salseros brings this exu­ber­ant and sen­sual dance to the Stan­ford cam­pus and San Fran­cisco Bay Area. We seek to enter­tain, teach, and spread our love for salsa through our per­for­mances, work­shops, and dance parties.

We’d rather you come out and dance with us rather than sit there read­ing this on your com­puter screen, so watch or join us at the events you see on this page, or con­tact us for fur­ther information.

If you want to see all of the mem­bers of Los Salseros past and present, check out this page.

What do we do?

Per­for­mances

Come check us out at one of the many events on (or off) cam­pus. Be warned; you’ll get hooked!

Salsa socials

Approx­i­mately twice a month, we hold salsa socials on cam­pus. These are a chance for every­one to come dance with us and meet other salseros in the Stan­ford area. Gen­er­ally, socials are on Sat­ur­days from 9pm to 12am and are held in cam­pus build­ings with wood dance floors. Check the cal­en­dar and our email list for announcements.

Work­shops

Before every salsa social we have a one hour begin­ner les­son. These are for absolute begin­ners as well as novice dancers with a few months expe­ri­ence. We also have a pro­gres­sive work­shop series in the win­ter quar­ter for six weeks at both begin­ning and advanced begin­ning levels.

Peo­ple often assume they should advance to the “next level” quickly, but we encour­age you to focus on the fun­da­men­tals, espe­cially at the begin­ning! Don’t rush your­self into learn­ing “that crazy look­ing move” you saw on YouTube. Make sure you have a strong sense of tim­ing and musi­cal­ity and are able to exe­cute the foun­da­tion moves cleanly, on time, and with lots of style. Do this and you will learn faster than oth­ers with a “get rich quick” mentality.
