About Danza Loca

Danza Loca has been running Perth’s most popular Salsa classes and weekly parties since 2001. Throughout 2009 we pioneered the opening of ZUMBA® Fitness classes across the Perth Metropolitan area, delivering ZUMBA’s awesome fat-burning cardio benefits to over 4000 students per week. Today we are running dozens of weekly ZUMBA® Fitness classes and still provide authentic Cuban Salsa across multiple venues each week including Perth’s favourite weekly Salsa party – “Havana Jam”, Tuesdays at the Mustang Bar!
