Dancing in Madrid

The thought of dancing in Spain fills most people’s imaginations with brightly dressed flamenco dancers and sultry salsa in dimly lit clubs. Amazing, but not something the average person can participate in other than as an enthusiastic spectator.

I was lucky enough to discover another side of dancing in Madrid at the Madrid Dance Center – a modern facility near Retiro (a few minutes walk from the Principe de Vergara metro) offering a range of classes including jazz, tap, contemporary, salsa, ballet, tango, and even pilates.

I took a contemporary dance class last week from an impressive instructor – Stephane – who spoke Spanish, French, and English. The class had only three other people in it and I was by far the least talented dancer, but I enjoyed every bit of it and loved the challenge of moving my body and trying to keep up with the choreography!

The best way to get started is to check out their class schedule – horario general on the website under actividades y precios – which changes each month, and decide what you’re interested in taking and how often you’d like to go. Then you can walk in and sign up any time.

I highly recommend trying out a class and taking advantage of the discount being offered. Happy dancing!
