Every Wednesday night, 7:00pm
Salsa is an incredibly popular, dynamic and exuberant dance that expresses the rhythm and joy of its distinctive Afro-Cuban music. There is sizzling Salsa dancing in clubs all over LA every night of the week.
Join this class to keep developing your Salsa skills.
Advanced Salsa (Wednesdays 8:00pm): Take this class once you feel comfortable with the figures in the Intermediate Class. You’ll focus more on complex partnering skills.
Every Wednesday night, 6:15pm
Slightly slower paced dance than Salsa, Bachata could be your perfect warm-up for the Salsa classes that follow on our Wednesday nights! This is a mixed level class. You'll be working on the coolest patterns and embellishments if you already dance Bachata, or figuring out and memorizing the basic footwork if you're a newbie. Can't wait to see you in this fun Latin class!

Corporate events lessons
For team-building events / after-work social / fitness activities / a one-time fun event.
Let Dancify design a program for your company that incorporates fitness activity, the learning of lifelong dance basics and fun group interaction in a No-Pressure, Absolute Beginners Welcome atmosphere! This is a smart way to bring co-workers together, build trust and have fun!!
At Dancify, we have had great success teaching groups the general “how-to’s” of social dancing or the specifics of a style (Argentine tango, West Coast Swing, Salsa, to name a few).
We travel right to your workplace for parties (many of our corporate clients have found that a 60-90 minute dance lesson “activity” is the best jumpstart to their party to get attendees interacting!) or for regular evening activities (once a week, once a month). Alternatively, you can host your events at our beautiful new studio in Redondo Beach.
Call or email us to discuss our ideas for your situation. And reward your employees with something different: Incorporate Dancify Studio into your next event and give your employees genuine take-home value.
Have you thought of having YOUR event at Dancify?! Call/email us to see if we are a good match!

Top quality instruction is a given, a relatable professional is a gem.
We don't sound, look, or move the same - that's what makes life beautiful. Our goal is to create a safe space where you can be comfortably and confidently yourself.
Whether you want to start from scratch or improve your dancing skills, learn American Smooth or Rhythm, International Standard or Latin, Social or Competitive dancing – we are here to teach you.
Just name it, we got it all - provocative Cha-Cha, flirtatious Mambo, sultry Rumba, energetic Jive, playful Swing, hot Samba, passionate Salsa, beautiful Bolero, trendy West Coast Swing, graceful Waltz, dramatic Tango, sophisticated Foxtrot, inspiring Viennese Waltz, sharp Argentine Tango and many many more!

“A FEW WEEKS LEFT” PACKAGE

“WE GOT TIME” PACKAGE
For a dance routine with the ‘Wow Factor’, this package is for you. We will choreograph a full routine tailored specifically to your music. It will include an ‘entrance’ and ‘exit’ that you are both comfortable with.
We will also use the music to choreograph to any musical highlights and show you both off perfectly. All packages can be tailored if required and ‘top-up’ lessons can be added too.
All of your lessons will be between you and your instructor in a fun and relaxed environment. Even if you have never danced before, we are confident that we will teach you a routine that you will both be happy with and proud of. And how about hiring us to come to your reception and teach your guests for an hour or so? We have done this before and it always goes down a storm!
And this is for your soul and inspiration:
“Fly me to the moon
Let me sing among the stars
Let me see what Spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars......
In other words......”
Take My Hand
Please take my hand.....
Lead me to the dance floor
I want to be with you for always
And, forever more.....
Be my partner throughout the rest of my life......
Be my husband and I’ll be your wife......
Dance with me
So that we both can see
The beauty in each other’s eyes
And, every single thing
That you and I can be.....
Rise with me.....
Fly with me.....
Ride with me, come along with me.....
It is now a time to get up, stand up and walk through a new door.....
As I travel and I soar.....
I want to join you now
I no longer want to just sit back waiting
On the edge of Life’s dance floor
I see now into a new experience, a new world
One where we can create with each other....
And, share and teach one another
One where we can both explore and unify....
With this new word, into this new world....
The one that we all like to lovingly refer to as.....
(By Larisa aka "Mara")
