list of current classes and relevant links

Brian Moretta, the principal of Baile Escocia, has been teaching salsa in Edinburgh for over 5 years. UKA qualified, he currently teaches regular classes for Edinburgh University Salsa Society as well as other ad hoc events. He has also been the principle DJ at Fiesta Latina, which he has helped build up into the largest regular salsa event in Scotland. Over the last few years he has been asked to use his fourteen years experience of tango dancing to branch into teaching.
