DID YOU KNOW? There’s such a thing as a ‘dancer’s high’! The rhythmic movement of dance has been proven to release the endorphins that provide dancers with this wonderful feeling. Dancing is a way to come out of ruminating thoughts in your brain and come back to your body. Studies show greater amounts of more positive thoughts and confidence after a dance session.

Spotlight on SALSA! Salsa is a Latin dance that was born from a mixture of various styles and musical techniques in Cuba. This dance made its way to the United States in the early 1900’s by way of American tourists traveling back from the Carribean. In the 1960’s and 1970’s, salsa dance reached a new found popularity with the arrival of Latin workers to the United States, especially in New York. Interestingly, it is disputed how salsa got its name. Some historians believe the word came about due to salsa music and dance being born out of many different styles. The mixing of these styles creates one ‘salsa’ or ‘sauce’. Others believe that the word salsa was used by record labels to promote their music as hot and spicy.
