While there are many different types of Latino dance music, Salsa has caught on around the world. Whether or not there is a large Latino culture in the area, this music and dance style have become a favorite with many people that love a dancing night out on the town. Famed for the ease with which dancers can learn it, Salsa has outpaced other types of Latino dance in popularity. Merengue, Mambo and Reggaeton have all taken a back seat to this fast paced and spicy music.
For those that want to dance but feel they don't know enough about this dance style, Salsa clubs often offer lessons. Some clubs hold them on a particular night of the week. Others offer a complimentary lesson to their future patrons. Many of the classes are low cost or even no cost. Salsa club owners know that once a person learns the basics of the dance, they will be back for more. They see it as an investment in future good will and club attendance.
There are different styles of Salsa dancing around the world. While clubs are generally listed as just Salsa clubs, each area has its own style. It is best to go to a club and observe a few dances to get the feel for the local style. Many clubs are open to all comers and are happy to demonstrate their particular brand of Salsa dancing.
A welcome atmosphere is always important in a dance club. There have been some types of clubs that have restricted membership and turned away potential guests. Salsa dancing does not appear to fit into this category. Outsiders are warmly welcomed to any Salsa club they enter. Each club seems to pride itself on its ability to welcome friends and strangers to join in and enjoy a night of dancing.
