Salsa is a lively, sexy dance full of spins, turns and dips. It is a distillation of many latin and afro-caribbean
influences and is a generic term encompassing a number of different styles: Cuban, Puerto Rican, New York, etc.
Salsa is guaranteed to lift your mood and send you home energised and with a smile on your face (not to mention the
music still going around in your head). Instead of sitting in front of the TV in the evening, come and take a
salsa class - it's better than aerobics!
The dance itself consists of combinations of six steps, danced over an eight-count rhythm and includes turns, spins
and dips. It is easy for the beginner to pick up and offers more complex moves and footwork for those who wish to
We often end the class with a Merengue, a very simple dance (you only need to count to 2!) containing similar moves
to salsa. This is very easy for beginners to do and is also huge fun.
