Salsa dancing has become a very common dance in Spain. The influence of the Caribbean rhythms have spread around the world, regardless of the complicated twists and turns, learning how to dance salsa is fun and can be a rewarding experience. But more important dancing is also a way to connect with the culture and the people.
On Thursday, June 8th, our group had two sessions of salsa dancing with a local dance instructor. While we learned the basic steps, we had a lot of fun. Everybody did great! It proved that everyone, regardless of the natural ability to dance that some seem to have, can learn a few new steps, and enjoy themselves as they get a taste of the new experience.
