What is Salsa?

Salsa dancing has become the most popular Latin ballroom dance in the world. With Caribbean and African roots, the origins of the dance date back in to 1900s in the east of Cuba. Here, various styles of music and dance were combined and Salsa was born.

The dance is widely recognised and has a reputation for being easy to learn, yet tough to master. Salsa is catchy and sensual and can be danced solo, partnered or fluidly in a group setting.

No, you do not need a partner to join our Salsa classes. While Salsa is often a partner dance, it is also important to learn the steps and rhythm individually. In our classes, we often rotate partners, giving you the chance to dance with different people and improve your lead or follow skills. However, if you have a partner who would like to learn with you, you are most welcome to join together.

We recommend comfortable clothing that allows for ease of movement. Many of our students wear activewear, such as leggings, shorts, and breathable tops. As for footwear, dance shoes are ideal because they allow for smooth movement and turning. If you don’t have dance shoes, any comfortable shoe with a smooth sole will work. Just avoid rubber soles as they might stick to the floor during turns.

Plus, salsa dancing is a great way to improve your fitness level while having fun. We recommend speaking with the instructor prior to the class to discuss any concerns or limitations you might have.
