Jeff & Colleen Shirey (Salsa Pittsburgh)
Now in our 20th year of teaching Salsa at Wightman School

Our next six-week cycle of group classes will begin on Sunday, January 9, 2022.
Please note: We are requiring masks at our classes until the Allegheny County Covid case counts remains below the “substantial” level (50 to 100 cases per 100,000). We acknowledge that wearing a mask during a dance class is not fun, however, it is a worthwhile precaution to take during these uncertain times.

Construction Update

There is currently a street/sidewalk construction project on Solway Street creating a bit of an issue for parking and entrance to the building. Parking is not permitted directly in front of the building on Solway Street and the main entrance from the sidewalk is blocked. You can still park on parts of Solway and the neighborhood streets, and also in the small parking lot on the side of the building. The side entrance to the building will be open for our classes, as well as the front door (which you can access via the playground areas on either side of the building)…see below map for details
