Just as the name implies, the Salsa is a hot and spicy dance. Hot because of its current popularity on the modern dance scene. Spicy because of the sensual body movements that will make any heart skip a beat. Salsa features lots of turns and spins as well as some intricate footwork. In this class, you will perfect your musicality – the expression of music through dance movement. In four weeks, you will master the basics and turns that make Salsa so much fun to learn. Instructor Doug McHugh of Ballroom Bliss has been teaching professionally now for over 14 years.
