While it might be cold and gloomy outside of the Modern Ballroom Dance Studio, it’s hot and steamy inside our studio. This is particularly true on the nights we hold our salsa dance classes. One thing that everyone knows about salsa is that it is caliente, to say the least. This Caribbean-based dance style is accompanied by fast-paced and lively music that is sure to spice things up on the dance floor more than you are used to.
For the most part, all Latin dances are known for building up to a crescendo. This creates both tension and release, which is what causes this dance to be a bit more sultry than any other you may perform. At the Modern Ballroom Dance Studio, we offer salsa classes that range from beginner to expert. If you are considering trying out this tantalizing style of dance, we’d like to encourage you. Below you can uncover just four of the many reasons we think salsa dancing is a fantastic way to spend your time.
It’s A Ton Of Fun
Since salsa is a lively dance that comes from Afro-Cuban roots, you are sure to have a blast on the dance floor. The combination of intricate footwork and an overall sexy appeal, make salsa dancing the perfect combination of structure and freedom. Salsa dancing also requires that you have a partner which means you will be making friends and having a blast in no time.
Salsa Can Help You To Get And Stay In Shape
Did you know that one hour of salsa dancing can burn anywhere from 400-500 calories? In our opinion, this is much better than spending an hour on the treadmill or elliptical. Not only will you be getting into better shape but the chances of you losing a few pounds is also pretty likely.
Salsa Is More Than Just A Dance
While you might think, “yes I know, it’s a dip that I can eat on tortilla chips,” this is not what we mean. Since salsa has such deep roots, this dance will dip you into the world of Latin American culture and music. While the particular styles of salsa may vary depending on your dancing locale, the seasonings of Latin America will be sprinkled on you for life, no matter where you are doing your footwork.
Salsa Will Encourage You To Try Other Types Of Dance
Once you step out of your comfort zone, there really is no stopping you when it comes to dancing. Salsa is a fiery form of dance sure to lead you down other paths that will also ignite your craving for fun new experiences. Not only will you likely be introduced to other Latin dances, but you may even find that you want to explore other types of dance entirely.
