Feeling blue? Well, dancing is one of the best ways to lift your spirits and none is better than salsa! The dance originated in the 1970s, in New York, and evolved from earlier dance from South America. Dancing the salsa gives you the chance to take yourself away from the world for a while and these are more reasons why you need to learn this amazing dance style;
Salsa is a great way to make new friends
Salsa dancing has become a social phenomenon and taking salsa lessons is a great way to meet new people. It’s the perfect ice breaker and, in most lessons, you will switch partners frequently, so you will get the chance to make lots of new friends.
Dancing improves your confidence
As you learn to master new dance moves, then your self-confidence, off the dance floor, will improve as well. It will give you a fantastic sense of achievement, which will show in your everyday life.
It will improve your posture and balance
Learning salsa will improve your balance and poise. Your own awareness of your body will improve and it will show in how you walk and move.
The ability to express yourself, verbally or with movement, is important to us. Perhaps you’ll have to hear and feel the music first, to fully grasp this one, but the ability to express yourself, with another person, to beautiful, exciting and passionate music, fulfills a basic human need (that you may not even know you have).
It will make you feel more attractive
Salsa is a very sensual dance and it will show you how to express your beautiful sensual side. Most people don’t often get opportunities to express this side of their personality, salsa will show you how!
Salsa is more fun than the gym
Just an hour salsa dancing will burn off around 500 calories and it’s a lot more fun than going to the gym. Dancing increases your muscle strength and reduces body fat; at last, a workout that you can really enjoy!
