Welcome to Salsa Simplemente



Tuesday 17 March 2020.


In response to the official guidance

all sessions have been suspended until further notice.






Salsa in the Tyne and Wear area.


Hello and welcome to Salsa Simplemente - simply salsa, and thank you for visiting my site.


I'm Peter, and I teach salsa in the Tyne and Wear area.  I run weekly salsa classes, rueda classes, a couple of simple but glamorous social salsa events each year, and maintain an email newsletter of local salsa events.




If you are reading this because you are interested in salsa, either dying to do it or tempted to try it, just come along to one of the sessions and have fun while you learn in a relaxed and informal atmosphere. 


As a beginner you will not be alone - walk in and dance out.


Remember ......


The hardest step is the first one onto the dancefloor.




Salsa Simplemente - What's in a Name?

SALSA Simplemente - It can mean both “simply salsa" (as in “only salsa”) or “salsa simply”, both of which I think are appropriate.  Apart from a little merengue here and there, a cha-cha now and then, plus a bachata or two, I simply dance salsa.  And in my classes too, that's the way I teach - slowly and simply.



 And finally .......


If you have picked up one of my flyers somewhere, or you have arrived here via a link from another website, then please note that some changes have taken place. 


Monday night salsa in Durham is no longer at the Gala Theatre - after 11 years the theatre wanted to use the Studio room for their own activities.  So we started at a new venue at the end of August 2016.


Please explore the website further which is currently being updated (some of the old stuff remains to give you a flavour), and I hope to see you at one of the sessions soon.


Thank you for visiting my website.  Peter, August 2018.
