10 BEST SALSA SONGS for Beginners to Practise to!
I (very frequently) get asked to recommend salsa songs which are good for beginners to practise to. This is awesome, because I love that our beginner students are recognising the importance of consistent listening to music to learn the salsa rhythm and musicality…but it’s also quite repetitive having to repeat the list again and again…so, here’s my definitive list of Salsa Songs that I recommend for beginners to practise to!
First though, let me explain why I chose these particular salsa songs for beginners!
1. They aren’t too fast. Some Salsa songs are really fast, and obviously, this makes it very difficult for beginners to focus on the music, while...
My name is Willow. I am a salsa instructor at The Salsa Foundation. I discovered salsa essentially through a random person on the street. It was my first day in uni. I just finished feeling happy and I came across a fundraiser in the middle of Burke street, we were just talking about random stuff and she brought me into her crew. From there I started meeting people and one person I met went to an old school that I used to go to. I asked her what kind of hobbies was she into and she said she was into dancing and I'm like, "I've always wanted to learn how to dance." "Ah, what kind of dance would you learn if you were to dance?" "Salsa. Sexy." So she's like, "Oh, I know this great salsa school just down the road over there and you learned salsa free." I'm like, "That sounds fun. Hook me up, when does it start?".

I was on Facebook and I saw this post the other day where it was like it takes $25,000 to train a regular soldier and $2.5 million to train a navy seal and the point of the post was that you invest for the best. And I got to talking to Artia and Artia is obviously one of the best salsa dancers in the world and I asked him how much he thinks that he's spent over his career in development in becoming the dancer that he's become. And we broke it down and we discovered that he'd been dancing for 10 years or developing for 10 years and over that 10 years he'd spent approximately, like he'd have to add it up to get the exact number, but approximately $80,000 in training. So flights, including flights, flying to other parts of the world. He flew and he lived in Milan for a few months there as well and he trained every day in Milan as well.
So, private lessons, coaching rom different instructors, classes of...
