So, what is the benefit of Salsa? Well, this particular dance helps you keep in shape by burning 400-500 calories in an hour! Focusing on the lower half of your body, we keep our upper parts level to each other – a simple way to improve cardio and improve weight loss through shimmies, arm work, spins and lifts. We think it’s much more delightful than running nowhere on a treadmill!

3. Salsa opens the door to other dances!
Known internationally, Salsa has introduced Latin America’s culture and musical roots, which has a wonderful and fun vibe to let your hair down to! Surprisingly, Salsa may vary stylistically in various locales – New York’s salsa scene historically has had more of a Puerto Rican influence, while Florida’s remains much more anchored in Cuba – but a Salsa aficionado can dance anywhere. Nevertheless, Salsa opens the doors to other Latin American dances, such as the Mambo, Cha-Cha, Forro, Tango and Bachata. Latin American dances are hot and focus a lot on moving your hips, so don’t be shy in showing us your sensuous side!
