Welcome to Melbourne Latin Dance

Scroll down for current MLD news

Although Melbourne Latin Dance is regarded as one of Melbourne's best Latin dance schools due to the quality of its classes, specifically the high level of technique taught, it's also a warm, friendly and fun place to learn! Come with a friend or come alone – you don't need to come with a partner!

A wide variety of the most popular Latin styles of dance are taught at MLD including Salsa, Bachata, Samba and Reggaeton. Our classes are taught by our team of friendly and well trained instructors at our centrally located studio in Richmond.

We welcome students of all levels, from absolute beginners to advanced dancers!

What's On at MLD?


We are offering a "2 for the price of 1" deal next term at MLD! That means that you and a friend can both get your courses for the price of just the one course. One of you needs to be a NEW student to MLD though – so if you know someone who has always wanted to learn to dance – and we all do, then NOW is the time to do it! The deal applies to ANY of our 8 Week Courses, which means that you and your friend do not have to enroll in the same course to get the deal. You can also get Early Bird Discounts with this deal however "Multiple Course Discounts" will not apply with the "2 for 1" deal.

In the 7 years of MLD we have NEVER run such a deal and may never do so again. Deal applies to Term 3 and is valid until places run out. Obviously you need to get in quick.

For more almost 7 years now at MLD, Ladies have reaped the benefits of the Ladies Styling and Technique course and we are now finally offering it to men also! Spins, Chaine turns, figure 8 of hips and ribs, correct arm technique in salsa basic and correct hip motion in the Salsa basic have been demystified and practiced.

The "Ladies Styling and Technique" course has now been renamed "Salsa Styling and Technique" and the first 4 weeks of the course will address the general aspects of Salsa technique that are not gender specific. Men can therefore do the first 4 Weeks and benefit greatly from it and the ladies will continue to do the entire 8 weeks, with the second half of the course being geared ONLY to the Ladies and what they need to know for Intermediate Salsa.


The benefits of Yoga people generally are numerous, however, being dancers – there's even more to gain in terms of body awareness, core strength and increased flexibility.

We're very excited to be introducing this course and hope that you jump on board and add Yoga to your life in 2012! I'm sure you'll be glad you did! This first course in Term 3 will be an absolute Beginners Course that will cover the fundamental postures and set you up with a solid foundation for your Yoga practice.

Liz will be teaching this course. It will run for 8 Weeks on Saturday mornings from 9 – 10 am.

Prices will be as per our 8 Week Course pricing.

You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat or they can be hired for $1 at the studio.

To register or for more info about any of the above call Liz on 0419 150 174 or email us at dance@melbournelatindance.com.au
