What you'll do

Wish you could dance like the stars on Strictly but feel too afraid to try? Do you tell yourself you have two left feet? Well not anymore! Jumpfit is running 6 weeks of two hour classes in Cuban salsa for absolute beginners!

Cuba is the birthplace of salsa, the most famous of all the Latin dances. Who better to teach you than Abelardo of ‘Salsa is Life’, an experienced Cuban salsa teacher from Old Havana! This will be an immersive experience exploring Cuba’s rich cultural heritage.

Your hosts will create an inclusive, welcoming and fun environment where you can get fit, express your individuality and meet new people.

What can you expect?

  • A step-by-step program where you will gradually build up your confidence. Master the fundamentals of salsa, the basic timing and steps
  • Learn how to move your body in time to smooth Cuban rhythms
  • Progress from the basic steps into partner dancing
  • There will be a sprinkling of other exciting Cuban dances like rumba and cha cha cha. After 6 weeks you'll be able to wow your friends and family with your new moves on the dance floor!

No dance experience is required for this class, in fact, it’s designed for complete beginners. Salsa is traditionally danced in pairs and everyone dances with each other -there's no need to bring a partner, come along and meet some new people!

About Jumpfit UK

This is one studio that keeps fitness and fun under one roof. There’s so much more to JumpFit than bouncing - there’s D’n’B boxing, hula hooping, rebounding, weighted routines and more.

JumpFit was born in Bristol in 2015. Founder Abbey wanted to give everyone access to fitness classes which put the fun back into exercising. Abbey is passionate about creating feel-good workouts which never feel like a chore. She's on a mission to help motivate people to move their bodies in fun and accessible ways. Workshops are suitable for all ages, shapes and abilities - inclusivity is what JumpFit is about.

Each JumpFit instructor started off as a member before they enrolled in teaching training and went on to become qualified instructors themselves. JumpFit is proud to keep it in the family like this - you never know, you might be next!

Your host

Abelardo

Abelardo is from Old Havana (Habana Vieja) and like most Cubans has been dancing since he learnt how to walk. Dance and music permeates every aspect of Cuban culture and Abelardo is an embodiment of this. He was always passionate about running his own dance school and now in Bristol this dream has become a reality.
Nothing gives him greater joy than seeing his students enjoy and progress in their dance.

How to get there

What people are saying

We had a lot of fun salsa dancing! The instructor moved at a fast pace, which we liked, and we got a lot out of the class. Definitely considering going again and possibly signing up for the regular classes. The only bit of feedback was that the lead kept referring to the parts as "men" and "women/ladies" parts instead of "leaders" and "followers". The latter is preferable verbiage. I'd still go back despite that bit of feedback, though. Just a bit of constructive feedback for improvement.

Amazing experience for a beginner, the instructors are really pleasant to work with and they have fun with you along the way.
