Requirements to start a Salsa School
There are not many requirements to start a Salsa School that are imposed on you from outside, but as the students arrive, you will see for yourself what is missing to add according to the needs of your particular students. As for the legal requirements, these are the same as for any other company: register it, buy a company name and provide it with a fantasy name.
Then comes the time to take care of the premises. It is very important that you can have a place with a very big room. Nobody likes to be bumped and stomped on while dancing, so either a single salon, or a house with a large living room officiating as a salon, will suit you fabulously. If the house is yours or you decide to buy it, you can rent the other rooms to other entrepreneurs like you, but they can manage with smaller spaces and, of course, their business idea is not to start a Salsa School.
What you can’t miss when starting a Salsa School
The following is what every entrepreneur who decides to start a Salsa School should have:
Mirrors: In addition to the big space, mirrors are another fundamental part of a school where you go to learn to dance.
Floating floors: to cushion the impact of the foot on the floor, which directly affects the spine, is something you should invest in when starting a Salsa School.
Specialized teachers: teachers who teach in a Salsa School must be specialized in the style, which implies knowing all Salsa styles, mastering them and being able to teach them. In addition, they must know the style of Salsa libre and couples, knowing exactly the steps and links corresponding to the man and the woman. If you are lucky enough to get native teachers from Cuba or another country that is one of the Salsa styles, don’t let it pass you by.
Varied music: students, especially female students, get bored of always listening to the same music, which doesn’t mean you can’t use the same music for years, but intersperse it by having a lot of music and a lot of variety.
Timetables when people are resting: don’t forget that when you start a Salsa School you will be working with people’s leisure time, as nobody will stop working or studying a career to go and learn Salsa, unless they study the career of Salsa Instructor or Teacher. So get ready to dance until 10 or 11 at night and all weekend long.
Courses to offer when starting a Salsa School
Most of your audience will go dancing for pleasure, so you can divide the groups into different levels, from 1 to 3 or 5, and give them a certificate when they pass the level.
Something very interesting is to offer Salsa Teachers or Salsa Instructors, with a profile of a professional in the field, able to teach, work as a choreographer, dancer, aero-salsa instructor and to exploit all the possibilities that this rhythm has to offer.
Project your school, open it and publish it on the Internet and in local guides, and you will see how your school fills up soon.

Dance is a very sought after activity in modern society, it is a culture and a means of expression that has not lost its charm and is part of the culture of every region of the planet.
