Your first adventure to a salsa club may be a surprise. Familiar faces seem to be the theme of the evening. Is that your accountant, your dry cleaner, your next door neighbor? It could very well be as salsa has become a universal past time without the barriers of age, race, gender, and size. With the abundant benefits to salsa dancing, it is not surprising to find out that millions of people around the world have come to enjoy this exciting and passionate hobby.
If you are unsure about whether or not salsa lessons are for you, here are some benefits to attending salsa classes and social dancing:
Physical Health Benefits
Salsa is a wonderful form of cardiovascular exercise. It has been estimated that a half hour of salsa dancing will burn as much as 200-400 calories, an equivalent amount to such exercises as cycling, swimming or power walking. Salsa will increase your heart rate, help you burn more calories, tone your muscles, and may even help you lose weight. Because of the unique movements of salsa, you will be strengthening your body and toning areas such as abs, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, and arms. Salsa classes and social dancing will make you sweat and you will enjoy every minute of it. Salsa also promotes other healthy habits. Salsa dancers tend to drink and smoke less. Salsa dancers eat healthier food and keep their weight at a healthy level.
Mental Health Benefits
Salsa dancing is an amazing way to relieve stress. When you begin your salsa lessons, the world and all the issues you face daily will fade away and allow for complete fun and relaxation. Once you have invested some time in learning to dance through salsa lessons and practice sessions, your self confidence will increase on and off the dance floor. Dancers have a great sense of self awareness and confidence and are in tune with their own bodies. They are more comfortable interacting with others in social situations. Also, students taking salsa lessons get to rotate and meet many new people and learn to feel good about themselves in a learning environment, which can be difficult to accomplish. A sense of camaraderie and a feeling of belonging to a team are created in salsa classes and this can also assist with inner confidence and self-awareness.
Let’s admit it – most of us can use a boost in the social life department. Whether that means creating a new friendship, a new social group or building a new relationship, salsa lessons and salsa dancing will create an arena for social networking. Salsa classes will introduce you to up to 40 new faces every semester. Add that to the hundreds of students that are found practicing their moves at bi-weekly outings and the thousands of Toronto salsa addicts that can be found dancing the night away at local Toronto salsa clubs, and a new social world is created. Salsa gives people an excuse to interact. From the beginning of a conversation a common ground has been established so conversation is easier. Once you dance with someone a bond has already begun to form. You can laugh at your mistakes, enjoy the feel of the music and rhythm together and very soon communication is easy and free-flowing. You do not need a partner to attend salsa lessons, take salsa club classes or social dance at an outing or club. It is very common for people to go to salsa classes or clubs on their own because it forces them to be social and meet new people.
In addition to wonderful and lasting friendships, salsa is an amazing and natural avenue for single people to meet other single people and potentially create a romance. Salsa dancing is very romantic and sensual so it is a great venue to find a compatible romantic partner. Students that attend salsa lessons tend to get together in small groups and go salsa dancing so not only are you meeting the students from your class but also their network of friends, family and acquaintances. Forget the uncomfortable internet dating scene, speed dating or singles events: try a salsa class! We have classes specifically for singles looking to meet new friends and spice up their social lives. Every salsa lesson will have a rotation so everyone who wants to rotate will get a chance to change partners every few minutes and get to know a variety of salsa students.
Creativity Benefits & the Fun Factor
Salsa dancing is an extremely personal, creative and inspiring passion. For anyone looking for an expressive, creative outlet, salsa will satisfy your need for self expression. Turn patterns, body movement, styling and the way one interprets the rhythm of the music is reflective of one’s self and is always a unique experience.
Most importantly, salsa is fun. Not the nice-dinner-and-movie type fun. Salsa can be the head-rush, heart-can’t-slow-down, euphoric excitement type of fun. With the fast paced, high energy, hot Latin rhythms it is no wonder there are so many salsa addicts worldwide!
