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?

Is Salsa Enough?

In the early days of Salsa Clubs in the UK there were only 2 dances you had to learn, Salsa & Merengue. In fact these were the only dances taught in most salsa clubs.

However it was not uncommon for the odd Cha Cha Cha track to be played, but unless you had taken Ballroom & Latin classes you tended to sit out and just watch those that had.

How things have changed...

Salsa Dancing has started a revolution in social dancing, and now a bunch of other Afro-Cuban styles of music and dance have sprung up wherever salsa is danced.

We now have, as well as the two main Salsa styles - New York & Cuban (inc. La Rueda), we have Merengue, Bachata, Cha Cha Cha and Reggaeton all becoming very popular in the UK and throughout the world.

The good news is that there are a few clubs that teach all of these dances, at least at introductory level, including our own club - 'Salsa SOS', and they are all contributing to the growth in popularity of partner dancing... especially the Latin & Afro-Cuban styles.

Other dances are benefiting too - Ballroom & Latin and Modern Jive, the most well known being 'Ceroc', and Belly Dancing classes have all seen increases in numbers in the last couple of years. There are even 'Pole Dancing' classes springing up everywhere - no comment!

Whatever you are into - Long live the Dance Revolution!
