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 more VR 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 OpenXR systems, 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.”

About This Game

Salsa, one of the hottest and most popular Latin partner dances in the world. And now you can learn it in virtual reality!

If you have ever been to a Latin club or dance night, you've seen all the smiles, laughter, steps and turns from the couples on the dance floor. You probably thought "I wish I knew some steps for this dance!" Maybe you know the steps, and think "if only I could practice more, I would ask that person to dance!" Well, you're not alone. That why we created Salsa Virtual.

Salsa Virtual teaches you dancing in VR. You can learn the fundamental movements of Salsa, including popular building blocks like:

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

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. Learn dancing in VR, so you can do it in the real world... and have fun! And it'll cost you less than the rideshare and parking to the party place.
