Salsa dance classes

Run by South Coast Salsa, a FB group. Free intro classes to salsa weekly. (You need to do it several times to pick it up, don't be at all discouraged if you find it hard the first time. Salsa is how I learned to lead! I attended Rock and Roll and Jive Classes for a long time, but they don't generally teach the guys how to lead!

In the summer, classes are held at the Lookout on Palm Beach, and last winter it was at the Baldivis Sports Complex

Currently happening at 7pm Sundays for the free class, followed by beginners classes at 8pm.

Swing dance classes

To give you some idea of what swing dancing looks like, some local swing dancing is featured in this dance music video from Baldivis' own REWIND2PLAY

It's called Saturday Night (opens in new window).
