The Best Salsa class and private dance class in melbourne. Pedro is incredible he is patient, talented, fun and always has a smile on his face. We enjoy coming every week. Highly recommend Cortés Dance.

Akshay Kumar

The instructor (Pedro) at the salsa class is very encouraging and makes really comfortable to dance with new people in the salsa class. I really enjoy learning salsa at cortes as beginner they breakdown each every step and they make more enthusiastic to dance. It is a lovely place especially if you are shy and if you want to learn salsa.

Cortes dance is by far the best dance school in Melbourne. Pedro and Tiffany are incredibly talented and professional dance instructors who teach authentic salsa and bachata and other Latin styles. They create a warm and welcoming atmosphere and make you feel apart of their family from day one. The school has classes for everyone whether you are beginner or have prior dance experience. It was the best decision I have ever made joining this school. I recommend everyone to try it, you won’t regret it!

Amazing place to learn dancing with a vast range of classes from absolute beginners to advanced level. I personally started in 2021 with no experience and low confidence. Now I can confidently dance at any social party. The teachers are well experienced and passionate about latin dancing.

Nothing better than coming to a dance school that will make you feel home and at the same time inspire you to enhance your technique no matter your salsa and bachata skills level .. Pedro and Tiffany will company you in your salsa or bachata journey and look after you like no other instructors making you feel comfortable as well as motivating you to improve your dancing skills.
