Salsa is a great form of dance and you will absolutely love it!

After living in Uruguay for several years and becoming fluent in Spanish, I set a goal of learning how to salsa dance and, after that, how to dance cumbia. It was challenging at first as Americans typically do not dance like Latinos.

Latinos like to have a good chuckle at the way Gringo’s dance. They say that we’re all up and down and are not moving our hips like you should with great music.

So be prepared to move those hips because below you will find all the best videos on how to salsa dance.

NOTE: The first few videos teach you the basic salsa steps and can be performed without a partner. For the remaining videos, it’s optimal to have a partner (see suggestions below about how to find salsa partners).
