With the holidays coming to a close and New Year’s resolutions right around the corner, you’re going to need a way to work off those extra, seasonal pounds. Longtime Seattle salsa instructor Vassili has the perfect solution for you.

Salsa Con Todo (750 N 34th Street) will open its doors om January 3rd. The dance studio will feature classes of all levels in Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Cha Cha Cha and a whole lot more.

The school’s artistic director Vassili brings with him a decade of dancing experience.

Vassili took his first Salsa lesson in 2000 and has not stopped dancing since. He won the “Reno Dance Sensation” Salsa competition two years in a row, and has performed and taught at numerous dance events around the US.

Vassili’s passion lies not only in the art of Salsa but in challenging himself to provide the most dynamic instruction to his students. He actively studies from dancers of various styles. He has traveled to Colombia and Cuba to study Salsa and Afro-Cuban Rumba from the real pro’s and looks forward to delving deeper into Salsa’s roots around the world.

Vassili is also a member of Children of the Revolution, a world rock band that has played some of the Northwest’s most prestigious theaters such as Meany Hall, Benaroya Hall and the 3,000-seat Paramount Theater.

The studio will be hosting a grand opening party on January 7th. They currently feature a six-week package for salsa lessons at $80 per person. For more information on how to get involved or sign up, check out their website.
