It is with much regret that Casa Cubana is suspending its weekly Thursday night salsa classes and social dancing at the Italian Club, from and including this Thursday the 19th. Salsa at Salamanca every Saturday outside Machine Café is also suspended until further notice.

With the current COVID-19 virus around the world and now in Tasmania, our feeling is that we all need to act to reduce the spread of this infection. For a virus that is spread by respiratory droplets, contact from surfaces and clothing, and from close proximity with other people, salsa dancing would pose a high risk of transmission if and when it comes into our midst. National guidelines recommend keeping your distance and not meeting in large groups. Suspending classes is one extra step we can take to help keep our community safe.

Although we will miss dancing with you all, our hope is that we can stay safe and resume dancing once this whole thing blows over. Keep an eye out on our facebook page for when things resume…..hopefully in the not too distant future!

Update: The launie road trip, and the transition block classes are also cancelled until further notice.


Casa Cubana is a dance group in Hobart dedicated to Cuban salsa and other latin dance styles.

 Casa Cubana dances Salsa at the Italian Club and it is a great place to meet people, dance, socialise, get some exercise, or have a relaxed drink at the bar and watch other people having fun. There’s room for all styles – Cuban salsa, LA, Ballroom, bachata, merengue. Regulars, casual visitors, people from diverse range of cultures, ages and attitudes – we all come together to dance!  Come along and enjoy some for yourself but be warned though, salsa can be addictive
