The Salsoul Academy

Things to do, Cultural centers

Located right by exit 4 of Gangnam Station, the Salsoul Dance School teaches several types of dance including Latin, ballet, diet dance and salsa. Teresa and Jeio, both well-known names amongst the Korean salsa community for having won championships all over Asia, run the school. Teresa explains that the most important part of starting to dance is opening one’s mind and learning to become one with the music. While beginners show up to class to learn the basics, there’s so much to be done before one even gets a partner. First, you must learn how to step, how to listen to the music and when to turn. In fact, the dance you initially learn is not even salsa, but meringue, the basic steps of which are much easier to learn. “For us, it’s not so much about technique, but the groove—the feeling of the music,” Teresa goes on to explain. “Korea’s a great country for salsa.”
