Welcome to Melbourne Latin Dance

Although Melbourne Latin Dance is regarded as one of Melbourne's best Latin dance schools due to the quality of its classes, specifically the high level of technique taught, it's also a warm, friendly and fun place to learn! Come with a friend or come alone – you don't need to come with a partner!

A wide variety of the most popular Latin styles of dance are taught at MLD including Salsa, Bachata, Samba and Reggaeton. Our classes are taught by our team of friendly and well trained instructors at our centrally located studio in Richmond.

We welcome students of all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced dancers!

We are offering a “2 for the price of 1” deal for Term 2 ONLY at MLD! Yep! HALF PRICE COURSES!!!! That means that you and a friend can both get your courses for the price of just one course. At least one of you needs to be a NEW student to MLD though – so if you know someone who has always wanted to lean to dance – and we all do – then NOW is the time to do it!

The deal applies to any of our 6 Week Courses which means that you and your friend do not have to enroll into the same course to get the deal. You can also get Early Bird Discounts with this deal however “Multiple Course Discounts” will not apply with the “2 for 1” deal.

All you need to do to take up your half price course is email us at dance@melbournelatindance.com.au with your full name and mobile number and also that of your friend and be sure to also let us know which courses you’d both like to register for. We’ll then link your registration forms and send you our banking details. Then you pay for 1 course but get 2!

At Melbourne Latin Dance, we are now offering a way to fast-track an entire term of Salsa learning into just one weekend!

For those of you who love the idea and benefits of a structured syllabus course but due to work or travel commitments etc simply can’t commit to a 6 Week course – we have come up with a way for you to have both!

This method of total immersion, with our structured syllabus course spanning over one weekend will have you move forward in leaps and bounds in just two days! This will consist of 3 hours on the Saturday, followed by 3 hours on the Sunday.

Saturday 21st February 2 - 5 pm


Sunday 22nd February 2 - 5 pm

Total of 6 hours

Early Bird (if paid on or prior to Friday 30th January) $95

Regular (if paid after Friday 30th January) $110


The long awaited follow up to what used to be known as our “Salsa Technique and Styling” course has finally arrived! The pre-requisite for this course is either what used to be known as the Salsa Technique and Styling Course or our current Salsa Technique and Fundamentals Course. This course will bring together the figure 8’s of the hips and ribs, and all the other techniques learnt in the pre-requisite courses into a smooth and graceful basic. We will also continue the mastery of spins and travelling turns and learn the fundamental footwork required for Salsa at the Intermediate level. The workshop will also include ladies styling including hands and arms in turn patterns as well as spins and shines!

Sunday 1st Feb 10am – 1pm (3 Hours)


This course will primarily focus on the actual basic step of samba and all the detailed technique involved in getting the samba basic as fluid and smooth as possible whilst maximizing range of hip movement and isolation. There will also be a section on arms in samba, travelling turns and more!

Sunday 1st Feb 2pm – 5pm (3 Hours)

Workshop Pricing
$40 each or both for $70 (Early Bird – if paid on or prior to Friday 16th Jan)
$45 each or both for $90 (Regular Price – if paid after Friday 16th Jan)
