Learning to Salsa dance not only burns calories and boosts metabolism, but can also reverse the aging process! Danced to four beats using only three steps, Salsa is the Spanish word for “sauce” denoting spicy or hot flavor. It can be danced to a variety of different rhythms. Generally, Salsa music encompasses many Afro-Latin rhythms driven by the clave (two wooden sticks struck together).
Claiming roots in the Caribbean, this popular dance is combination of early Cuban dances as well as Puerto Rican ones, creating a unique and fiery dance style all of its own. Today’s Salsa is the result of many years of rhythmical evolution and is the national dance of Puerto Rico.
