Salsa Mía

Salsa Mía began February 15, 2005 on South Beach in Miami, Florida and the tradition continues today under the direction of Alex Ruiz. Founded with the spirit of fun and friendship; Salsa Mia is so much more than Salsa classes to so many people. Salsa Mía is a social gathering, a true meet-up, made of a diverse group of instructors, dancers and students from all over the world who share a common interest, the love of Miami Style Salsa - Casino Rueda. Salsa Mia is the longest running salsa event in the history of South Beach. Salsa Mia has been making fun happen for thousands of people with great new events every week!

Salsa Mia started as a small social event; a way for local people to get together after work and learn to dance salsa. Over the years our group has grown and it has given us the chance not only to get to know each other, but to make friends with people from all over the world who come to dance with us. People have built new friendships, found new relationships, gotten married, had babies, networked for their businesses and Salsa Mia is exactly what we set out to be... a wonderful group where people can come together, meet and have fun and a true South Beach Tradition. Cheers to everyone who has been part of making the tradition with Salsa Mia!
