When & Where
Longhorn Salsa is a student organization at the University of Texas at Austin. We offer weekly classes free of charge every semester and summer for both
UT students and those in the Austin community. In addition to classes, we hold events at UT, have guest teachers, and explore the various Latin dance clubs
and venues that Austin has to offer, giving our members a rich introduction to the Austin salsa dance scene.
Our mission at Longhorn Salsa is to make sure our members learn the fundamentals of salsa and have an enjoyable experience in the process. We believe salsa dance
is a great way to meet new people, get fun exercise, and listen to great music. We hope all of our members take something away from our classes, whether it be friends, new moves, or a passion to
explore more dances. All the officers at Longhorn Salsa love dancing salsa and we want to extend our love of the dance to our members.
