Learning Salsa can be Tiring. Supplement it with Good Food

28 Aug 17

 

Salsa is one dance form that is both elegant as well as it has a lot of energy in it. It has originated in the Caribbean but is now popular in most parts of the world. However, there is nothing like learning Salsa in the place of its origin - the Caribbean. And if you can do it in some of the best restaurants in the Cayman Islands, it is like Burrito with salsa sauce. A perfect combination.

This dance form has evolved into many variants. The music is also different in these variants, but one thing which is common is all of these dance forms is the elegance. Every individual can also add some subtle variations to the dance, making it unique. These variations will be a recognition of your personality and will provide a distinct identity to your personality.

Salsa is performed by keeping your upper body almost still, though some styles involve movements of arms as well. You shift the weight of your body by stepping causing movement of the hips. You can try learning it yourself by watching the videos, but it can be best learned under instructions and supervision of a good salsa teacher,  who is also a good dancer. And if you have other learners dancing along with you, this makes the learning simpler and more enjoyable.

Salsa is a medium paced dance, and if done to perfection looks very graceful. The pace may, however, differ to match the pace of the music.
