Salsa was first known as Mambo. The beautiful Bolero rhythms from Cuba and Puerto Rico were transplanted to New York and mixed with jazz music and became the Mambo in the 1950’s. Think Ricky Ricardo and Lucy!! The Mambo fad died but the music stayed in the latin communities. It traveled to Mexico and Colombia. Then in the 1970’s the music made a resurrgence. Once again in New York the music became popular but this time they called it Salsa (Hot Sauce!!)
Since then the music and the dance has become popular througout the world. All of South America, Europe, Asia and all over North America.
What makes our teaching effective? What makes it Salsa Nueva?
We start with the Rhythm and Action not just steps.
To learn Salsa start with the action of your legs, knees and hips to match the music. Your body naturally moves with the music. Learn how to move yourself with fast steps and turns. Then learn how to connect - to send and receive the signals for the turns and flowing moves. Then just have fun and Practice!!
Be prepared to commit at least 2 months as a beginner and 3-6 months as an intermediate as it takes time to build a good dancer!
Salsa Nueva is our method of combining NewYork Smooth, Puerto Rican Rhythm & Colombian Speed to learn it faster, better & easier! Classic Salsa but updated!
