Salsa dancing is the core of Latin dancing, it’s usually the first passion in your Latin dance journey.
We love it because it makes us feel good, feeds our soul and brings happiness into our lives.
Salsa is the world’s most popular Latin dance. It is loved because of it’s music, it’s origins and it’s many dance style’s. Salsa refers to a fusion of informal dance styles having roots in the Caribbean (especially in Cuba and Puerto Rico), Latin and North America. The name “Salsa” is the Spanish word for sauce, connoting (in American Spanish) a spicy flavor.
