Salsa Dancing has been, for years, the most popular Latin social dance in the world. Although it’s mainly a couple dance, it is also very enjoyable when danced individually. Its music is a result of decades of the fusion of many musical elements from countries such as Puerto Rico, Cuba, and other Latin American countries.

In essence, Salsa dancing moves and steps are a mix of European and African dance culture. They reflect the African influence in the Caribbean and that of European dances brought to Cuba.

In other words, Salsa dancing is sexy, fun and energizing!

    Dan Bouvier
  • I thought I would get a little personal today. I have ADD, and sensory overload which affect my everyday life.

    When I was introduced to Alan’s Berkshire Salsa socials I had no experience in any form of dance. My confidence level was not high. Over the past eight or so months I have continued to feel better and better about my dancing capabilities. I know I am not great by any means, but I feel great and that is what matters. I have watched others progress just like me over the months and to see a family of Latin dancers form here in the Berkshires is so exciting.

    I hope anyone who has heard of his lessons and socials who is hesitant to try it out or join our awesome family will reconsider because not only do you get to become a part of a special group of people, who encourage and do not judge you, you also get to learn from Alan Franco who is unmatched by his patience, kindness and dedication to his students.

    I encourage my fellow Latin dancers to share your story of how you became a part of Berkshire Salsa’s family!
