The Sims Freeplay- Hobbies: Salsa Dancing


This hobby unlocks once you complete the a dance to remember quest that post can be found here

For a limited time: complete the hobby in 7 days to unlock the villa, the one that you visited in the quest

NOTE: You have 7 days from the moment you finish the quest so selecting not now will still start the timer!

Also once you have completed the hobby for the first time you unlock the breakdancing hobby (another timed one!)

Who can do salsa dancing?


How can they do it?

Once you have completed the a dance to remember quest you will be able to buy a jukebox from promotions r us for 5000 (you can only have one in your town)

Then you need at least two sims to do this hobby

Click on the jukebox, sim 1 selects wait for partner and then sim two selects one of the dancing options

You can have 2 couples dancing at once.

Once they have finished dancing an exclamation mark will appear above one of their heads, click that to get a trophy.

Where can you salsa dance?

At the house where the jukebox is

What are the options?

Quick Salsa- 1 hour 30 minutes

Extended Mambo- 7 hours 30 minutes

What are the levels?

  1. Flailing Flasco
  2. Out of Step
  3. Wily Dancer
  4. Hot Stepper
  5. Dancing Dynamo
  6. Sovereign of Salsa

Is the limited time prize wimageorth it?
I really like the prize being the villa, I’m just not sure its worth 175SPs (can only be built on a premium residence) More information on the villa can be found in houses guide (part two)

UPDATE: the first one you build should be free

You also unlock:

The latin paving for patios, balconies and pools


Latin Mosaic, Latin Concrete and Latin Shapes flooring 

Latin Exterior Stucco Tile (exterior walls)


Latin Red Stucco, Latin Blue Stucco and Latin Tile Mosaic walls 

What do you win?
1st time you unlock the breakdancing hobby, to start this timed hobby you need to buy the breakdancing boom box from promotions r us) That post can be found here.

Further times you earn 5LPs
I cant find one of the items, any tips?

The only advice I can give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random

It it worth using lucky spin?

I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs

  1. Sorry, just to clarify: when you complete the hobby do you get a villa for free or do you still have to pay even if you complete it on the time limit?
    Also, to complete the hobby do you just have to level up to the highest level or do you have to collect the 12 item things?
    Btw, I love your blog so much – it has helped me so many times! So thank you haha!

  2. I forgot to put this in my last post, sorry! But do you still get the brea dancing hobby if you don’t complete it in the time limit?

  3. How do you get the collectibles for the salsa event???

  4. Any tips on how to make the additional content download faster ? Because it’s been stuck on 2.75 for a week. Please answer.

  5. Can I complete the Salsa Dancing Hobby by doing “Quick Salsa” over and over again, or do I have to do the long 7 1/2 hour “Extended Mamba” to get like the more rare trophies?

  6. I can’t complete the salsa dance in time. Do I still get the villa?

  7. Is it possible to tell what trophy you will receive during the dance?

  8. The Latin villa expired with 2 days on the clock, is there a way to resolve this? Has anyone else had this problem?

  9. I started the hobby and I had 4 more days until the time ran out for the Latin villa. A bit later I when on the game and I said the villa had crumbled! I don’t know what to do.

  10. Not sure if this question has been asked, sorry if it has, but can I use a neighbor’s jukebox? If so, will I get the collectables if I just “wait for dancing parnter”, or can this hobby only be completed in my own town?

    Thank you for your help! I worship your posts!

  11. I’m sorry if this question has already been asked. Just wanted to know, is there any benefit of cheering your sims while they are dancing? Will this increase my level faster?

  12. I keep getting the same collectibles over and over and only have 34 hours left to complete the hobby. Did you have this issue? I’m at level 6/6 and have had my Sims dancing nonstop

  13. My Salsa Sims cannot get the LAST TROPHY! They’ve been at it for days. He leads, she leads, quick salsa, long salsa, it doesn’t matter. How do I get the last trophy?

    • All you can do is just keep going, there aren’t any tricks to it- some of them just take forever to find! I would suggest you stick with the shortest option to try and find it quicker. You could use the lucky spin on this but that will cost you LPs.

  14. Help, where can i buy the jukebox? i cant find it anywhere and im at the salsa dancing event quest.

  15. I hope you’re not tired of being thanked for a brilliant and helpful site because here comes another thank you 😉 I’ve been playing for quite some time now and have finished pretty much all quest within the time limit. Only I failed to complete the salsa dancing quest so I missed out on the latin villa. Do such quests ever return or do I simply have to accept that I cannot get the latin villa template?

    • It’s lovely to be thanked actually! 🙂
      Unfortunately the only way you would be able to get the villa now is if they add it to the online store at some point so you can buy it for real money (or if they give it to you as a prize on their birthday in December but I don’t know if anyone has got the villa before this way! Sorry!)

  16. just to be clear if it is my first time unlocking the villa within the time limit i will get the template for FREE? that would be awesome

  17. I finished the salsa hobby in time but I don’t get any rewards

  18. I’ve been doing this event the whole time with the same two sims now both level 6 salsa dancer only 27 hours left and still need 4 dances to complete the collection. How do I get this completed before time runs out. Very frustrating

  19. Hi, I bought the jukebox and when I’m about to place it in a house it says limited item and i cant drag the jukebox. I need help, anyone?

  20. Hey, I just wanted to know if I should do quik salsa or extended mambo ? And what if I switch partners ? I mean new sims.

    • You should do extended mambo to level up to level 6 and then do the quick salsa once you reach level 6 to earn all the trophies as quickly as possible.
      If you switch to two completely new sims then you will have to level them up again so wait until you reach level 6 before you change their hobby otherwise you will waste time trying to reach level 6 with the new pair.

  21. I passed the dance to remember quest, but i bought the jukebox on the promotions r us store, but i cant put it anywhere, it says there is one already?! where is it i cant seem to find it, i cant go back to villa what do i do??

    • Have you placed the jukebox in a house yet? If you have you will need to go to each house until you find it. If not you need to look in your inventory under hobby and career items to be able to place it, if you try and place it from new items it will say its locked or a limited item.

  22. My jukebox says locked
