Founded in April 2023, Acacia Latin Dance Company blossoms as a vibrant addition to Hartford, Connecticut's dance scene. Rooted in a profound passion for Salsa on2, our mission is to spread this infectious enthusiasm throughout Central Connecticut.

The name "Acacia" holds a symbolic significance, embodying not just resilience but the enduring strength found in the Acacia tree. Mirroring the tree's ability to flourish in challenging conditions, we aim to cultivate a dance culture that thrives against all odds.

In our weekly classes, led by seasoned instructors, we delve into the intricacies of New York Style Salsa. From precise timing and intricate footwork to styling, body movement, partner-work, and refined technique, each class is a journey into the art and joy of Salsa.

Beyond classes, we offer choreography and performance services for Quinceañeras, Sweet 16s, Weddings, and a wide variety of events, infusing the celebration with the vibrant spirit of Latin dance. Excitingly, we provide a youth program for children and teens, introducing them to the joy of Latin dance from an early age. Private lessons are also available for personalized and intensive training.

Join us at Acacia Latin Dance Company, where the name encapsulates not just resilience but also growth and endurance. Every dance step resonates with the enduring spirit of Latin dance, inviting you to be part of a community that flourishes in the face of challenges. Consider joining our performance team to elevate your dance journey and share the joy of Salsa with a wider audience.

R. Nicole, CT

I started taking dance lessons with Christien & Acacia Latin Dance Company as soon as they opened!  I’ve always wanted to dance & hadn’t found a place to learn, when i saw his posts on social media I decided to give it a try!! I was so nervous & so new… Christien & everyone in each class are the reason I kept coming back.  Chris breaks it down step by step & helps each person to understand the why of each step.  
He is patient, kind & motivating & an excellent instructor.  Everyone I’ve met in his classes are so encouraging & so patient, no one will let me quit when it’s difficult.  All levels are encouraged and welcomed, classes for different levels & private lessons are available, I’ve done them all & I can’t say enough about Chris & his crew!!  Come check it out you won’t regret it.
