Salsa was born as a cultural dance in the clubs and streets of Cuba in the 40’s coming from a mix of styles such as Afro-Rumba, Cha Cha Cha and Son – and quickly gained popularity as it spread across Latin America and the world.
Known for it’s exciting music and high energy movements, it can be danced in couple or solo. The dancers follow the rhythm of the music based on the clave, the weight shifts cause the hips to move, and the ‘leader‘ uses his arms signal and guide the ‘follower‘ to change positions and make different steps (that we learn in class).
If you don’t have a partner – don’t worry! Social dancing is about dancing with a variety of people or you can stay with your chosen partner. Social dance nights are your chance to practice and have fun with Havana People !
Salsa dancing is a full body aerobic activity that tones all your muscle groups – and it’s a lot more fun that running on a treadmill. Increase your social circle, meet new people and your guaranteed to feel great!
At all Havana People classes & events we encourage a safe and fun atmosphere to learn to dance together. People of all backgrounds and age groups can come together to socialise and connect.
Added BONUS – you can travel anywhere in the world and find Latin social dance events and festivals!
