For the past two decades, Convergence Dance and Body Center has been teaching private and group Salsa dance lessons and helping to develop some of the best salsa dancers in St. Louis. This exceptional program focuses on teaching basic concepts, connection, technique and how to improvise. Whether you choose to study at your own pace with a private lesson program, as a community in a group setting or a combination of the two, we will custom tailor a program just for you. We offer beginning and advanced salsa and Bachata classes, Salsa Rueda and Rueda: Beyond the Basics. If you can not find what you are looking for in the group class schedule and are looking to explore some of the more unusual styles, try our introductory private lesson with our award winning teachers!
We came here because we didn't know anything about any salsa classes or studios. In hindsight, we got so lucky we ended up here. What we thought would be just Salsa 1 ended up as Salsa 2A and Salsa 2B, then Bachata. We are hooked because these folks make dancing fun and easy for anyone. Super unfortunate but I ended up busting my knee and went to Carter, the Chiropractor, for therapy. So glad he was there because I'm back to my old self again.
Convergence is by far the best dance studio I've ever been to! I have been going for about three years now and I still learn so many new things each week! There are a wide array of classes, of which I have taken salsa and tango (both spectacular). Every instructor is helpful and extremely knowledgeable about every dance style taught there! The classes also range from beginner level to advanced, so there is something for everyone! I highly recommend this studio for anyone looking to learn new dances and also for more experienced dancers who want to learn even more!
I'm not sure I've ever actually expressed to you what a big deal it is for me to now feel comfortable at a social dance. I was almost pathologically shy as a teenager and not knowing how to dance, or how to ask for a dance without being gleefully rejected, was one of the ongoing themes of my youth. This past year it has been *profoundly* gratifying to put some of those old ghosts to rest, and have a hell of a good time in the process. Thanks. I mean it.

Group Class: These classes are the next step on your tour of the Salsa world! We work on basic and more advanced spins while taking the fundamentals and making them seem more complex. Not to worry, salsa 1 will have prepared you for these new twists an turns! This will make your salsa jump to an entirely new level and is tons of fun.
GROUP CLASS. This class will develop and explore advanced salsa figures and pure fundamentals. We want to help you find a way to move that is purely Cuban, Puerto Rican, Venezuelan, funk or a combination of everything. We hope to see you and develop both style and some inspired combinations!
GROUP CLASS. These classes are specifically for the performance team. Those interested in knowing more about it would need to have a good level of Cuban salsa and would need to bring a partner that they would be dancing with in class.
