Friday Salsa Lettering.png

Join us for fun, community, and dancing every Friday at the Olympia Eagles. Dance to a variety of music like Salsa, Bachata, Cumbia, etc. People dance from all over the world with us bringing different styles to the community. Just like how a language can have dialects, accents, and slang, yet still be understood. We don't believe there is a "correct" way to dance, as long as it's to the music and you and your partner are having fun!


Exciting news! The entire night of Friday Salsa will now be at the Eagles.
