Dance School


The Masacote Dance School offers authentic Latin dance and music instruction for people of all ages, levels, and abilities. It is based in Cambridge, MA, with an online studio platform for a global audience.

To us, salsa is more than a dance or music style – it’s a way of life. Our devoted team of coaches utilizes a mindfulness-based approach, building strong foundations and developing students’ technique, musical connection, and body awareness skills.

As a small company with a big vision, we realize we can’t do it alone. We also offer a work-study program, where students provide practical help for the team in exchange for discounted classes.

The beginners guide

An introductory rate for the unlimited package is available for beginners.

What to wear

Dress comfortably! Sweat pants, dress pants, leggings, leotards, skirts, wraps and/or sarongs are all welcome. If you do not have dance shoes, we’d recommend heels or dress shoes with a slick bottom that do not give traction when spinning.

Ages of Participants

Students’ ages range anywhere from 16-60, although average falls between 25-35.

Partner Requirements

No partners needed! We rotate everyone during classes, but advance registration is required to help monitor ratios.


Always start at Stage 1. The coach will move you up if recommended.

Non-Group Classes

We offer private lessons for individually tailored instruction and online classes for training at home.
