Keep Fit With Salsa!

Post by fair singer on Tue Sep 22, 2009 3:41 am

I've been taking salsa lessons recently and its really good fun and a great way to keep fit and healthy without feeling like you're working too hard. Below is some information about salsa:

[b]Salsa[/b] is a Latin American style of dance with Cuban origins. Today, you can hear salsa being played on dancefloors throughout the world. In fact, some people claim salsa is the most popular dance on the planet!

[b]What's the music like and where will I have heard it?[/b]
Exhilarating and vibrant, salsa music usually contains lots of drums and other percussion instruments. You might have heard of singers such as Shakira or Gloria Estefan. Their records have helped make salsa popular throughout the world.

[b]How will it help me keep in shape?[/b]
With salsa, the tempo is faster than most other forms of dance music. Depending on how vigorously you dance, how long you dance continuously and how regularly you do it - salsa can lead to a lower blood pressure, improved cholesterol levels and a reduced heart rate.

[b]Will it change the way I look?[/b]
A half-hour session can burn between 200-400 calories - just as many as walking, swimming or riding a bike. And what's more, you can stay in shape with a smile on your face!

[b]Who is it aimed at?[/b]
Salsa is for everyone - no matter what your age, shape or size. In fact, many gyms have recognised the health benefits of salsa dancing and have introduced salsa-size sessions into their aerobic activity timetables.

I guess I'm hungry because when I saw the title of this thread I started thinking about salsa the condiment! Anyway, salsa dancing is a really great form of exercise. I've only tried it a couple times, but I really loved it. It's very fast paced and you can just feel the calories burning off.
