In August, come join the fun and learn the basic steps of the lively Salsa. The most basic Salsa steps are easy and the music is fun and upbeat.
Salsa is a Latin dance similar to Mambo and thought to have Cuban origins. Both Salsa and Mambo music were made popular in the United States in the 1940’s and 1950’s by artists such as Tito Puente and Celia Cruz. More contemporary artists who have had popular songs that can be danced with Salsa are Gloria Estefan and Ricky Martin.
As before, no partners or experience are required. We will rotate partners during the classes. Also we welcome any ladies who want to learn to lead or men who want to follow. Partner dancing is a fun way to get exercise and it is definitely good for our brains, muscles, balance and spirit! For any questions, please email me (Terry Whitten) at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at (415) 265-7590 (cell.) I hope to see you on the dance floor!
