What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We'd like to release as early access to hear your opinion on comfort, ease of use, learning process, educational content and progression of dance moves. Body movement learning is a difficult concept in VR and we could use your help to refine the process!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Salsa Virtual will be in early access for about 4-6 months to allow for proper feedback and implementing appropriate changes.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will include more interactions with virtual students for practicing moves, haptic feedback on the controllers, and refined animations and educational materials. We're also planning support for Windows Mixed Reality headsets.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version is ready with limited player/virtual partner interaction. We'd like to hear your feedback on how comfortable and useful it feels before moving forward.
It supports HTC Vive and Oculus Rift + Touch, and has the dance lesson animation content, audio and controls complete.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We've set the main basic movements and patterns for salsa in the dance lessons for this current price. However if there's a large demand for more content on the basic lessons we would raise the price gradually to accommodate for further motion capture, teacher salaries, and post processing refinement for VR.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We've seen and played dance games in the past were you might end up with memorized knowledge of a choreography, but nothing you can use in the real world and in real situations. We would like to achieve the opposite, and teach dancing for the real world using virtual tools. We have great teachers, but none of them learned in a virtual environment, so with the help of the community we can explore this new medium and make it effective for everyone.”

It's Here

Almost 2 years ago to the date we started going hard on developing Salsa-Virtual.

There was much excitement as we pressed the "Release Now" button. Even more when STEAM said, "review and are you sure you want to publish?" And climaxed when we then had to type the text "Release my app."

Enjoy, Everyone! And we look forward to your feedback and making improvements.

Much love,
Rebekah & Jorge

Mirror Fix

A recent update to Oculus is not playing nice with our VR mirrors, so we're fixing that and postponing launch by a week to make sure everything works well.

Early access launch is so close and we're super excited!

About This Game

Salsa Virtual teaches you dancing using virtual reality. Learn the fundamental movements of Salsa, one of the most popular Latin partner dances in the world, including popular building blocks like:

  • Forwards and Backwards Basic
  • Side to Side Basic
  • Cumbia Step
  • Back Breaks
  • Follower's Underarm Turn
  • Cross Body Lead

Never has there been a better way to learn from home. Compare to your local dance studio and you'll realize you will save a ton of time and money (and heartbreak) while starting your new and legendary hobby.

No partner? No problem. Our professional teachers will explain how movements translate from your virtual partner to a real world experience. Pause. Slow down. Rewind. Practice. With a level dedicated to dance fundamentals, even those of us with two left feet can learn to check our balance, and get used to dancing in VR, so we can eventually do it in the real world.
