Default Dancing in Dubai - salsa, ceroc, jive etc

I'm a female dance addict moving to Dubai in the middle of August. Have only been dancing ten months but am pretty enthusiastic dancing on average five times a week!

Have looked up all the classes/freestyles available and am a little bewildered by what's on offer, so it would be great to make contact with some fellow dancers, male or female, to get a better idea of the good places to go and have someone to talk to on the occasions I'm not on the dancefloor...

Salsa I dance LA or cuban but not on2, can also do a bit of bachata, meringue and cha cha and ceroc I can do a bit of leading as well as following.

I am NOT looking for a date!!!! No offence.

Oh, and I've heard about the traffic issues in Dubai, but how bad are they in the evenings if I were to want to travel to a class further from where I'm living? I'll be in Qusais so a bit far out.

There's a cuban bar called Malecon in Dubai marine Club in Jumeriah, near palm strip mall (not to be confused with the marina), they do salsa nights most nights a week. For everything else I'd check out time out dubai!

Hey there!
The nearest class for you to attend is Aviation Club. I think it's on Tuesdays and Saturdays at 8.30 for begginers, 9.30 for advanced. It's not a night club, more of a class. The instructors are very good. They are two brothers and they teach salsa, but also do provide private lessons.
The same guys have classes in Shangri-La hotel Monday, Tuesday, Friday.
The other option for you is to go to Savage Gardens. Every evening at 8.30. Be on time, they don't take anyone late. They are pretty good as well.

Malecon is great for salsa. I would go there myself, but my friends prefer R&B or techno.
I live next to Qusais, we may go together. I will take you there, so you know the place.
Further down to Jumeirah I think they give salsa in the Appartment club.
Also there are plenty of clubs who are offering about two hours of salsa dance in a club and have someone who will teach you.
I go to Aviation club and Shangri-La. So far I am somewhat advanced beginner
Most of the classes cost about 50 dirhams everywhere.
If you have more questions feel free to ask!

The traffic is easy on the way out of Qusais to Dubai in the evenings. So no warries there. It takes me 15 min to reach Aviation Club and about 30 min to reach Sheikh Zayed road.
But it's another story if you are taking a taxi. It could be problematic coming back to Qusais.

If you have your opinion please post it without insulting others.

Everyone has own taste and places to go.

I didn't attend trade center on saturdays and have never been to Svage Gardens.
However I had an overview of all dance studios at the Salsa dance Festival last month.
Savage were the best.
