Queer Salsa is an empowering, consent-based and body positive session. Let’s celebrate our wonderful bodies, connect with others, unleash our creative self, learn something new (or refresh what you already know), have fun and potentially feel fabulous. Come and join us in a safe and friendly environment. No dance experience necessary. You are welcome to come alone, paired or with a group.
