Salsa is a partner dance. The word is the same as the Spanish word salsa meaning sauce, or in this case flavor or style.
A couple does not travel over the dance floor much, but rather occupies a fixed area on the dance floor. In some cases people do shine steps (Latinized jazz steps) alone.
Salsa music is a fusion of traditional African and Cuban and other Latin-American rhythms that traveled from the islands (Cuba and Puerto Rico) to New York during the migration, somewhere between the 1940s and the 1970s.
Class attendees will learn to move to the beat, step to the beat, display the dance’s Cuban, African and Caribbean influences along with some flashy steps to take out on the dance floor.
Classes are $10 each. July 20 stars a 6-week session that goes until August 31. Buy all 6 classes by the first class for $54. No class August 24. See you there!
