It can happen to all walks of life and all ages. Whether you a kid or adult,
student or a doctor, it can happen to you.
Hi, my name is Arren, and I'm a salsa dancing addict.
It first started in September 2000 when my friend asked if I wanted to take a salsa
lesson at a new dance studio that opened - the Atrium Dance Studio in Pennsauken,
When I arrived, there was a group of about 30 people in the Basics 1 class. I didn't
know what this dance was, or what I was getting into. The very first steps were
awkward, but soon found their mark.
After we learned the
basic step, Barbara Capaldi, our dance instructor, put on the music. The
moves to the music came together in a way I can't describe. I've been dancing salsa
Here I am with friends: Davina, Kisha, and Arren (me)
It's over 10 years later and I'm still dancing and loving it! The driving beat
of the dance makes you move. When you dance with your partner and make a
connection, this dance can turn passionate and sensual.
You too can learn to dance and experience the passion.
The salsa dancing community
What makes the salsa scene different from the normal club scene? The difference
is the community of salsa dancers. When you go to a salsa club, you won't
find raunchy bumping and grinding and you won't feel like you are walking into
a meat market. I have danced with people all over the United States and around the
world and everyone is inviting and friendly.
In the picture below, I'm dancing with a local Japanese woman at Latin Soul
in Ginowan City, Okinawa. It was a wonderful experience because even though
I could not speak fluent Japanese, I was able to communicate with dance.
Wherever you go, you will have the sense of feeling at home. As a dancing
addict, you will find that many of your new friends will come from dancing. You
will have many opportunities to make lifelong quality friendships and relationships.
