The New studios have some great new features compared to the previous studio, it will have 2 studios, both much larger than before. 3 Air conditioning units, 2 Toilets, kitchen & a shower. Also its easier to find the studio & better parking. Note: In the picture below, Salsa Latina has the whole top of this level. The main entrance is on the right hand side just off the street.
Renovation update: We have smashed walls down, ripped carpet out and its looking great so far. Okay to dance on at the moment but we wont have mirrors up but hope to have a brand new dance floor starting to go in this week! We're also adding a couple of small partition walls, so it will look different next week.
Parking & Amenities: Salsa Latina Studio is still located in the City Centre, Just on the edge where all street parking is free all day & we now have loads of cars parks now available onsite after 6pm, please use up to the first 14 parks onsite, 'at this stage'. Easy for people who drive, walk, bike or take the bus. Our location is also handy for those at CPIT, now only 1 block away.
Quake Recap: After a massive 7.2 Earth Quake hit Christchurch on the 4th of Sept & a series of aftershocks, Manchester courts building, which 'Salsa latina resided', will be demolished due to structural damage. We are very sad to see the old place go & we have suffered a massive loss to the business "Salsa Latina". But the good news is, we have found a better studio as above.
Location:Salsa Latina Studios- 54 Fitzgerald Ave, Christchurch CBD, New Zealand
