What is: Salsa "On1"?
 
-Learn to dance Salsa breaking on the 1st count of the basic 2 measure step. Notice that this way of dancing was developed by Latinos at the Palladium Ball room, in New York city, to accommodate large groups of people in small crowded night clubs. ( Much like availability of large spaces in Europe is limited, due to high rent costs ) This dance method is by far the most common method around the world to dance Salsa- all 7 continents in the world have a large following of Salsa "On1". Salsa is a "slot dance" developed to encourage partner dancing.  It will be a pleasure for us to show you more about this dance along with others in more detail!
