A Message From The Owner Of
the Salsa With Silvia Studio

Welcome to the Salsa With Silvia Community! We are a family owned and operated business that started as a passion and a hobby when I was 6 years old and is now the fastest growing and largest Latin Dance studio in the DMV area.

Our goal is to create a community for students of all ages and levels where they can learn dance at their own pace, without intimidation. It’s also a place where everyone makes great friends and has fun! We believe that dance can be therapeutically and healing for both kids and adults so join us!

Our studios are in two prime locations: DC and Bethesda, MD. Both venues are perfect to rent for events such as weddings, corporate meetings, family events and more.

The Salsa With Silvia studio is known for its wonderful recreational dance programs, making dance easy for anyone and at any age. We offer kids dance classes starting with babies to teenagers in both our DC and Bethesda locations. Styles include ballet, jazz, tap, modern, contemporary, hip hop, Latin, tumbling, creative movement, performance training and more. We have one of the best camp programs for children in the DMV area. Our camps are bilingual and the kids spend several hours a day on reading, writing and math in addition to their dance classes, arts and crafts, field trips and more fun activities. Information about our kids programs is available here.

For our adult students, we offer group and private salsa and bachata lessons as well as private ballroom dance lessons.

We are also available for hire for company, family and government events where we provide performances, fun lessons, and team building workshops.

We hope to make a difference in your life with dance!


Owner Silvia Alexiev


If you have never danced salsa or bachata before, start with our 4-Week Absolute Beginner series.


Explore our syllabus videos (What's my level?) and try to match your level by how comfortable you feel with the moves. If you have never taken structured dance lessons, we strongly suggest starting with our 4-Week Absolute Beginner Series.


If our syllabus videos are not helping you decide where to start from, schedule a free consultation with one of our expert instructors and they will help guide you in the right direction.


How much do you want to commit? If you want to do our series then our 4-class pack is the best. Step up into our 10-class pack or unlimited if you want to get more practice and become a good dancer!


Each level is broken down into a 4-week series that covers the most fundamental moves that need to be studied in that level. Be sure to go through each level for best results! Before you move up, be sure to ask your instructors if you are ready.


For best results, we recommend that after you complete the Absolute Beginner Salsa Series and move on to Beginner Level 1, you combine the series with our ongoing practice classes for more patterns, moves, styling & drills.

Gradual pace of learning, great results

Our classes are very well structured. Our foundation classes are broken down into 4-week series that give you a solid base to build on. Our ongoing/practice classes are for you to learn more patterns and do more drills so you can become a better dancer.

I think its fantastic of you that you make other people happy. People of all ages, different nationalities, gender come together and laugh because of you Silvia. Whats better than that? Thanks for your efforts, your time, your expertice. To me your an angel and I wish you all the best! dear regards
I want to take the time to thank you and the many other instructors who opened the doors to their dance class. I loved to reconnect to one of my passions, dance, and most importantly, to meet wonderful people. I can’t thank you enough. Not only, did your participation and inclusiveness help me achieve an A for the ethnography study, it lifted my spirits during a very difficult time for me of loss and sadness. Hope my presence was as uplifting as the dance experience was for me.
