Thanks Kenny Sia! n Level Up and Pam for introducing free trial salsa class for us, we've finally registered one week earlier, n had our first salsa dance. many youngsters our age (gee, 23 is still young :P) enrolled for the class. Instructor Lynn and Steven can really sway their bodies~ pheweet!



Salsa is a syncretic dance genre from Cuba, as the meeting point of European and African popular culture. It later spread to Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean islands. Salsa is essentially Cuban with deep Afro-Cuban beats, and additional musical influences from Son, Guaguancó, Rumba.[1]

Salsa is normally a partner dance, although there are recognized solo forms, line dancing (suelta), and Rueda de Casino where groups of couples exchange partners in a circle. Salsa can be improvised or performed with a set routine.

Salsa is popular throughout Latin America, and also in the United States, Spain, Japan, Portugal, France, Eastern Europe and Italy.

All in all, it's a fun and memorable learning experience. I'm not fast at remembering the steps, kinda confusing..only the turning and making a round movement captures my attention! =)
