Seven Great Reasons To Start Salsa Dancing

Salsa dancing is a sexy Latin dance characterized by its Afro-Caribbean beat, Latin rhythm and Cuban band melodies. Salsa dance is a passionate rhythmic dance that involves fast footwork and intimate movements. The term salsa was coined form the Cuban hot sauce that uses several ingredients to create a spicy hot sauce. Like the condiment, the dance incorporates many Latin, African and European dances and mixes it into one dance. This steamy energetic dance is a favourite not only in Latin American countries but is largely based in the American cities of New York and Los Angeles.

There are many reasons to start learning to dance salsa. Here are a few reasons:

  1. Learning Salsa dance is a great work out. Instead of exercising in a local gym, why not dance salsa in a club and have the same work out but with music and fun. Salsa dance is a great cardio work out and works out both the legs and the torso. It also increases your body's flexibility and increases your endorphins as you work out on the dance floor.

  2. Learning Salsa helps to increase your confidence and your self esteem. Salsa is a very intricate and energetic dance. Mastering this dance, you know what you're doing and how to move your body. This helps you with your confidence, around people and especially around members of the opposite sex.

  3. Salsa dance also helps with a person's timing and reflexes. Because of the footwork and coordination needed, the dancer's timing and reflexes are automatically improved.

  4. Salsa dance is a mixture of many other dances. It incorporates so many dances and is very open to improvisation. Learning Salsa dance also teaches you the basics on how to dance other dances such as the Mambo, the Cha Cha and Merengue. Most of the other dances have the same dance steps and rhythm basics and so learning the Salsa sets up the foundation for many other dances.

  5. Leaning Salsa can also help with relationships with the opposite sex. Aside from your self esteem and confidence, you also learn how to master the intricacies of when to lead and follow with the opposite sex. It teaches you the subtle differences between men and women and how to move your body with your partner.

  6. Salsa dance is a social dance. You cannot dance alone. It is inevitable that you get to meet other people and other dancers. When you learn to dance, you get to socialize and meet people. You get to interact with them on a different level because you share this one common enjoyable thing, dancing Salsa.

  7. Lastly, the most important and greatest reason to learn the salsa is because it is just so much fun. Aside from the fun that regular dancing brings, Salsa is so energetic and connecting, you can't help but smile as you move on the dance floor.
