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.

dance steps and rhythm basics and so learning the Salsa sets
up the foundation for many other dances.

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.

cannot dance alone. It is inevitable that you get to meet
other people and other dancers. When you learn to dance, you
