This year the Salsafestival Switzerland offers on Saturday and Sunday an amazing variety of Salsa workshops in all styles and at all levels. Not every good dancer is automatically a good instructor. We only hire instructors who are didactically excellent and good fun!

We completely redesigned our workshop concept. Now we are able to offer more space for new and original workshop contents. As usual we also offer a solid range of workshops to our numerous Casino Cubano dancers.

The class rooms are very spacious, ideally equipped with wooden floor, acoustically well separated one from another and all workshops are under one roof. In our main hall, the grand ballroom, we even put the workshop on the big screen so that every single participant can fully profit from the class no matter how many guests show up.

During the breaks you find a sunny and warm foyer in the centre of all activities. In the location you can find as many as 2 restaurants. In the Mercado Salsero, new open to public, you can buy the latest of clothes, shoes, fashion, CDs and DVDs. The Kongresshaus is situated in the centre of Zurich which offers all a city can.
