Improvements to Monday Nights

Thanks to the suggestions of MSalseros & MSalsa instructors, we've decided to bring you a "new and improved" line-up for Monday night lessons. Starting in September, Semester Memberships will be available -- only $40 for 11 weeks of lessons! The choice is yours: $5/night or $40/semester. We've also improved our level system, adding new moves and enhancing the line-up of everyone's favorites to allow for the most helpful and enjoyable learning experience. The new matrix will be on MSalsa's website soon.
