All Buena Vista Dance terms run for 8 weeks, after which you will have learned all the moves necessary to progress your dancing to the next level. Each term contains different material and you should complete all 5 Beginner level terms before moving to Intermediate level classes.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will the next term start?
Our terms are consecutive, so each new term will start the following week from our advertised end of term date.
When can I use my 8 class pass?
The eight class pass is just a group of eight lessons that saves you money and is valid for three months. It is not linked to our eight week term so you can buy it and use it at any time.
I can't find the class at Leichhardt, where are you?
Tuesday classes are held at the front hall of the All Souls Church Hall at Leichhardt, opposite Renwick St. Thursday classes are at the rear hall, accessed via the laneway.
Salsa Syllabus - List of Elements
We've made available for our students a list of all the salsa and rueda elements included in the Buena Vista syllabus. Please come along to our classes to learn all these moves, and ask any questions you have about anything on this list.
Tuesday and Thursday night classes are held at All Souls Anglican Church Hall, cnr Marion and Norton St, Leichhardt.
Our beautiful new place is huge, with great wooden floors for dancing and it's in the heart of Sydney's "Little Italy". There's free parking behind the Town Hall opposite the church and there's metered parking (coins only) on both Marion and Norton Sts, but if you go at least one street away in all directions, you'll find unmetered parking after 6.00pm. There's also 2 hrs free parking at Norton Plaza shopping centre, a few minutes walk from the venue. Buses run from the city frequently and stop right outside the church, and it's 15 minutes walk from Petersham Station. Some of the bus routes from the city are: 435, 436, 437, 438 and 440.
We'll be using either of two halls on each night, so just follow the sound of Salsa and Bachata! The top hall is on Marion Street and the lower hall is a few metres down the laneway alongside the building. As you all know, this area is the hub of cafe life, so you can have some delicious food and coffee etc. before and after classes.
Note: Please don't park in the driveway of the church hall as other cars can be blocked from entering and leaving.
