Con Clave Dance

Con Clave Dance is an On-2 salsa dance company that provides quality classes, performance, private lessons, and events. Lawrence and Claudia Garcia are relatively new to the Phoenix salsa scene, but have quickly climbed the ranks as some of the best salsa-social dancers and sought after instructors in the city.

And having started their weekly mambo classes less than a year ago they now enjoy one of the largest classes in the city because students have come to expect and look forward to detailed and dedicated instruction with a special emphasis on lead-and-follow technique in social dancing. And their love for the social scene will no doubt become apparent when you see them out dancing until the last song, often with their students!

Operating as usual

[01/30/21]   🎼🎵🎶Con Clave Dance’s project is to blend various styles into a fusion while respecting the roots. We diversify our training so that we can be inspired to take our dancing into fresh directions. As I always say, there are no rules only foundations.
