If I already know how to dance salsa, do I still have to start in the beginner level?

You don’t have to start in the beginner level if you already have experience dancing NY- or LA-style salsa.   We can evaluate you before your first class to determine which level you belong in.  For people who dance salsa but have never taken classes before (“street” dancers) or only have experience with casino-rueda style, you should start in the beginner class.
