DUBLIN SALSA ACADEMY (a.k.a. DSA) WAS STARTED IN 2015 BY A GROUP OF DANCERS FROM DUBLIN LATIN DANCE SCENE. SINCE THEN THE SCHOOL HAS GONE THROUGH A COUPLE OF CHANGES AND SINCE THE MAJOR RESTRUCTURE IN SUMMER 2018 DSA IS AS YOU KNOW IT TODAY.
THE ACADEMY IS NOW RUN BY A WELL KNOWN DANCE COUPLE IN THE DUBLIN AND IRELAND DANCE COMMUNITY - ABEL & ALINA, BOTH BEING ONE OF THE ORIGINAL CO-FOUNDERS OF DSA.
THE COUPLE HAVE FIRST MET ON THE DANCE FLOOR IN DUBLIN. NOT LONG, AND THEIR PASSION FOR EACH OTHER GREW INTO A UNIFIED PASSION FOR DANCING AND TEACHING TOGETHER.
THEY HAVE SPENT 4 YEARS TRAINING HEAVILY TO IMPROVE AND PERFECT THEIR TECHNIQUES.
A WIDE RANGE OF MUSICAL SKILLS AND THE LOVE FOR ATTENTION TO DETAIL HAVE SHAPED THEIR PRIMARY FOCUS ON TECHNICALITY, EASY MOVES AND A COMMON-SENSE APPROACH TO DANCING BASED ON SIMPLICITY AND A BASIC FOUNDATION.
DSA FAMILY HAS GROWN TO A TOTAL TEAM OF 10 IN THE RECENT YEAR, ACQUIRING SOME GREAT & CHARISMATIC DANCE INSTRUCTORS AS WELL AS NEW TRAINEES.
THE TEAM TRAINS HARD EACH WEEK PUTTING IN EXTRA HOURS TO DELIVER FUN, YET KNOWLEDGEABLE DANCE MATERIAL WHICH IS FLUID THROUGHOUT THE VARIOUS LEVELS.
AT DUBLIN SALSA ACADEMY, WE ARE PROUD OF OUR DANCE INSTRUCTORS WHO WORK HARD AS ONE BIG FAMILY, ALWAYS SUPPORTING EACH OTHER AND GROWING TOGETHER, NURTURING ALL OF OUR STUDENTS IN THEIR DANCING JOURNEY.
“Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”
At DSA we strive to nurture every student from their first steps through to the complex dance patterns.
Well structured lessons with a focus on technique will confidently give students the tools to progress.
And as any new thing requiring memory and lots of practice needs a little fun time to relax. Our great dance instructors are experts at combining fun and serious into a recipe for a great class.
We are committed to providing the public with a space where you can feel a part of a supportive and fun community.
Every learning process has to follow by the results and this is exactly what we strive for! Our vision at DSA is the fulfilment of your personal vision with us.
