Boston has dancers who either dance On1 (LA style), On2 (New York style), or both. We even have a few regular club dancers who dance Cuban style (but they’re so few I can count them all on the fingers of my hand).
The following studios and instructors offer lessons. They are all greatly involved in the Boston salsa community, and many of Boston’s regular salsa dancers are one of their students. Click the studio links below to read their profiles and watch videos of them dancing:
