Dance with Duende


Duende Dance Studio offers Salsa and Bachata group classes from beginning to advanced levels, private lessons, performance teams, and monthly socials. 

We are dedicated to helping you improve your dancing with high quality instruction in a fun and supportive environment.


Our classes follow an effective curriculum that are structured in a progressive manner with a new series starting the beginning of each month. The first week of the series you will learn a new element and we continue to build-on throughout the month. *Since our classes are progressive, we only accept new students to start classes the 1st or 2nd week of the month.

Classes focus on teaching all aspects: the lead/follow technique, timing, rhythm and body movement. 

We have something for dancers of all skill levels. 

News & Upcoming Events

In accordance with the recent government mandate we will be “Pausing” all group classes on our class schedule for 4 weeks (until Dec 18th). Although we are confident in our ability to provide a safe learning environment we also want to do our part and be in accord with state laws and regulations. We want to thank everyone who has attended classes at Duende and to let you know that we appreciate your business. We will return as soon as possible! We will continue to provide you some classes in the online platform in the interim and hope to see you in-person again when the time comes. We know that these closures are not easy on anyone, we hope that you all are safe and well cared for in these difficult times.

Virtual Classes/Modified Schedule until Dec. 18th:


7:00pm Salsa On2 Footwork Level 3


6:30pm Salsa Footwork Level 2

We have moved to an online class registration and payment system. This new online registration system will streamline the registration/check-in process, allow check-in to be contactless, and assists in following distancing and occupancy guidelines. It is also a great tool for students to register for classes, track their accounts, and purchase package plans all online.

Students will be required to register and make payments for class online in order to attend classes or participate via Zoom. 


For in-person classes there are a limited number of spots available and fill on a first come first serve basis. Your spot is reserved once you register for each class. If your desired class is full, please consider signing-up to join us online via Zoom.

Please click Log-in/Sign-up on the top of the page. 

Fill out the form to become a site member. This is necessary in order to register and attend classes. 

After becoming a member on the site you will be ready to register for classes!


Please note that when you arrive at the studio you will still need to check-in at the front desk prior to class. 


For returning students with unused credits:

Please allow up to 3-5 days for previous credits to be applied to your account or complete a single class purchase to be able to register for class.

In order to apply all previously purchased class package credits, each student will need to become Duende site member. If you shared a package with someone, we will divide them between the two people on the card unless otherwise requested. Moving forward, each person will need to have their own member log-in account and packages. We will be extending package expiration dates for existing class credits to reflect the amount of time that we were closed.


We will be following all guidelines necessary to make this a safe and fun experience for all students and staff. We appreciate your business and thank you for your continued support.
