The Love of Salsa
Learn to Dance Salsa, Bachata, Merengue on the Sunshine Coast
Salsa dancing is an international dance that can be found in most metropolitan cities in the world.
People take up salsa for any number of reasons. I decided to become a salsa dancer through a combination of needing to broaden my social interactions, and being fascinated at how salsa dancers who, having never met before, can dance together without rehearsing.
Salsa dance socials are commonly held by Sunny Coast Salsa throughout each month to give everyone a place to dance with great atmosphere for all levels of dancers from beginners to intermediate.
You don’t need a dance partner to learn to dance salsa. Salsa has a great social element where the majority of dancers come without partners, like most Latin dance classes you rotate partners throughout the lesson, this is great not only to make new friends quickly but it keeps you from falling into bad habits that you would otherwise not notice dancing with just one partner.
Sharing the experience of movement and music with your significant other can be very powerful and satisfying. Dancing can bring couples closer together, and since salsa is flirtatious, it can inject sensuality and romance into your relationship.
