Intermediate Salsa Routine (Romantic)
I have posted this routine to show that not ALL Salsa Routines have to be Frantic Exercise Workouts... Some Salsa Music can be Slow and/or Romantic and your dancing should reflect that. Remember (Men) when you are dancing with your partner that what you lead and how you dance should not only be on time, but also relevant to the music you are dancing to...
Otherwise you are not Dancing, and just trying out a few moves while there just happens to be some music playing in the background.
I hope you like the video. I plan to post more in the future.
See You on the Dancefloor.
P.S. If you like the video, why not leave comments and rate it on Youtube?

Salsa Changed my Life!
(Salsa SOS - UK)
How can something as simple as Salsa Dancing change someone’s life?
Why Salsa Dancing in particular?
It's certainly not the easiest thing in the world to learn and it can take a lot of time and effort to get proficient at. You risk looking foolish, you have to interact with other people, conquer your fear of the unknown, and it costs you money to do it (ouch!).
Why does one even bother to try and learn it?
The following are a few of the main benefits most people appear to gain through dancing, especially Salsa Dancing.
Social Benefits: You will meet more people socially through Dancing, than any other single activity on the face of the planet! Traditonaly people have gone to Singles bars & Clubs and perhaps even Health clubs in the hope of meeting someone… very rarely with any success!
You'll laugh at the things you used to do to meet people, because once you start dancing, your social life will literally explode!
Have You and your Partner lost that passion you used to have? Start learning Salsa Dancing and it will all come flooding back to you! You will learn to relate to each other in a passionate, honest, and unique way that you may perhaps have never done before and your relationship will be all the richer for it. You need to experience it for yourself to fully appreciate what I'm talking about here.
Confidence: Once you get over the initial fear of making a fool of yourself your self-confidence will grow rapidly. You'll become more comfortable in yourself and you'll find your new, increased level of confidence will affect every aspect of your life. People will notice the difference and will even be drawn to you. As a consequence your circle of friends will grow and you will even find it a lot easier to get a date ;)
Self Expression: The ability to express oneself verbally or with movement is important to all of us. Once you start to learn to hear & feel the music you will begin to grasp this one. The ability to express oneself (along with another person) to beautiful, exciting and passionate music satisfies a deep & fundamental human need. Most people are unaware of this and is a major reason why Personal Relationships benefit so much.
Weight Loss: Self explanatory really. You lose weight - you feel better physically & emotionally and as a result - you live longer!
The best thing about losing weight dancing Salsa is that it’s actually FUN to do, unlike exercising down at the gym.
Flexibility, Coordination and posture: Not only will these benefits affect you, but they will also affect the way people see you at first glance.
Happiness and Fulfilment: We all want our lives to be as happy and fulfilling as possible. Many peoples' lives change forever the day they take up Salsa Dancing - Myself included! (I may go into this in more detail at a later date)
Not everyone can become the greatest dancer in the world, but everyone has something to gain from dancing. Some people will be affected more than others, some people will try it and move on, but everyone needs to give it a try, and will be all the richer for the experience. The more reasons you can think of for NOT doing it, the more you're probably going to benefit from carrying on.
Salsa Dancing changed my life in ways I would never have imagined when I decided to go along to my first lesson. I didn’t realise it at the time, but it was probably the most important (life altering) decision I had ever made, and I will be eternally grateful that I did. (Long story I may share with you some other time)
Trust me, if you give it a try, Salsa Dancing is going to change your life too, in ways you can’t possibly imagine right now (just like me!), and I look forward to hearing your stories one day!
