Welcome to Salsa Secrets

Salsa Secrets, a latin dance company, in Portsmouth NH and Newburyport MA provides Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha, Salsa On 2, Rueda de Casino, Merengue, and Cuban Son instruction. We share weekly group classes in 6 week sessions from September to June and host a social dance, the first Saturday of each month. In the off weeks and off season, we offer specialty workshops and outdoor events such as Salsa in the Park - Portsmouth and BEACHata - Hampton.  Each year, we host Dance Retreats in Habana, Cuba.  

Our mission is to share the dance with you, by combining excellent dance technique with the opportunity to your open heart. When technique and heart develop together, we fully experience the healing power of dance and then, the real MAGIC can begin. We believe deeply in our students and want to see you succeed. We would be honored if you joined us on the dance floor!

Salsa Secrets is directed by Piotrek Kowalczyk and Krystal Couture, who bring passion, inspiration and creativity into the dance while honoring the evolutionary process that learning dance offers. Piotrek and Krystal feel abundant love and gratitude to share Salsa Secrets with each of you!

The dance can reveal everything mysterious that is hidden in music, and it has the additional merit of being human and palpable. Dancing is poetry with arms and legs.
