What is Salsa.
Salsa is a form of dance everyone can take part in. It has no bounderies, no age limit, no ability levels and no levels to endless fun.
Learning to dance is not only an excelent physical activity, it also improves posture and keeps you mentally alert. Above all, it is fantastic fun.
Originating in Cuba in the 1900's, there were two main rhyms from the existing styles of music in the region, Cuban Son and Afro-Cuban rumba.
These two sounds were combined to creat a new dance. This new rhythm was also combined with American Jazz and taken to New York by Cuban musicians.
Traditionlly danced with a partner, it can also be dance solo by yourself in some cases when you are doing freestyle, but the main fun is dancing with a partner. Salsa dancing is now taught, practiced and performed in night clubs, dance schools, health gyms and ballrooms all around the world.
You can find it relaxing, exhilarating, friendshp bonding and a new expieriance every time you dance.
