Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in New York City with strong influences from Latin America, particularly Colombia, Puerto Rico and Cuba. The movements of salsa have origins in Cuban Son, Cha-cha-cha, Mambo and other dance forms, and the dance, along with the salsa music, originated in the mid-1970s in New York. (source: Wikipedia)
Any dance is great exercise. You get to move several parts of your body. You get to move your legs for those great steps. You get to move your arms as you hold on to your partner or you swing your arms with your body. You get to move your head and neck as your look both ways, upwards and downwards as you move with the music. Finally, you get to work on your rhythm and style too!
Unfortunately, taking dance lessons can cost you an arm and a leg too … BUT not in CHICAGO! You can learn to dance salsa at the Chopin Park at 3420 N Long Ave Chicago.
