The Salsa Windhoek Social Club (SWSC) is the only full-time social salsa dancing collective in Windhoek, Namibia. It is the organiser and promoter of salsa and other Latin American dancing in the capital city.
Since January, 2014, then operating as Salsa Windhoek, it brought a distinct and welcome dancing culture to the Namibian social calendar with salsa parties hosted at various restaurants around Windhoek.
In August, 2014, Salsa Windhoek closed its doors. It re-opened in March, 2015, under new ownership and management. With Rémy Ngamije at Salsa Windhoek’s helm the organisation’s operations expanded to offer regular classes, workshops, and parties.
In May, 2016, Salsa Windhoek became the Salsa Windhoek Social Club. The name-change signaled the maturity of the organisation and the realisation of a year-long dream to operate as Windhoek’s only full-time social club offering social dancing enthusiasts a permanent space in which to continue dancing.
The Salsa Windhoek Social Club is committed to growing the social dancing community in Windhoek. It seeks to bring the joy and passion of salsa dancing to new and experienced salsa dancers.
It does this by providing salsa classes to dancers of all levels; hosting regular socials at its studio and bigger parties in restaurants located around Windhoek. It also hosts monthly workshops which focus on certain aspects of salsa dancing, and, when possible, also introduces other Latin American dances to its students as well as the general publics.
SWSC’s parties are open to everyone. Although, salsa is the popular dance of choice there are numerous Latin American dance styles that can be pursued at the parties. These include bachata, cha-cha, merengue, and reggeaton.
