Community Adult Salsa Classes: Designed to bridge communities through dance, it provides free instruction to adults. Passionate volunteers will demonstrate the beautiful expressions seen in Salsa dancing to the Baldwin County community.
Historically, Salsa finds its roots in Cuba, where the African rhythms brought there by slaves mixed with various forms of popular Spanish music. Salsa was cultivated in Cuba and Puerto Rico where it continued its development, producing possibly the best Salsa musicians and dancers in the world. Now it is a dance which is popular in the international sphere in places such as Japan, Senegal, South America and all through Europe.
