“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.”
What is it that makes Salsa popular today? Why is it that people who salsa seems to be happier, in better shape and in a better mood compared to others? From these questions we see that there are two major roles dancing salsa plays in people’s lives: they are healthier and they have a great social life.
Salsa dancing Inspires in you a positive attitude towards your daily life.
Dancing helps shift and balance your mental state to a positive one. The best way to achieve this is by doing it often. Since dancing and the social contact uplift the spirit, if done regularly, it helps your life to become that way (positive, happier). Your daily activities become more pleasant as your overall mood is uplifted through dancing salsa. No wonder people say that dancing changes lives. I’ll say it better: “Dancing changes attitudes; positive attitudes change lives.”
- It’s a great cardio activity that is fun; it’s a lot easier to spend three hours dancing than it is to spend forty five minutes on the treadmill.
- You burn 450 calories per hour while dancing. Isn’t that amazing?
- Your balance and posture improves.
- You lose weight.
- Your flexibility increases.
- It helps develop better circulation.
- You will have better coordination.
- You gain long-lasting energy as your metabolism increases.
- It helps you work through or reduce other major health problems (e.g., depression).
You increase your self-esteem and confidence.
If you are shy, this is the safest place to interact with people. The salsa community is an open and extremely friendly one. From the moment you walk in the door, you will feel welcomed – it’s that easy. As you learn how to dance, you find yourself in a situation that is fun, open, and energizing. Don’t forget about the exhilarating Latin music! Watching yourself lose weight, learn how to move well on the dance floor, and constantly improve is an enormous boost in confidence! As a girl, there’s nothing more satisfying than having guys constantly asking you to dance!
