Salsa isn’t just a topping at Mexican restaurants—it’s also a spicy dance technique that originated right here in New York. When an influx of Cuban immigrants came to America in the mid-twentieth century, they brought the mambo with them, and the ballroom dancing style soon took on characteristics of other Latin, Caribbean and Afro-Cuban dances, creating something entirely new: salsa dancing. NYC is one of the best places to find dance studios to learn the fancy footwork, hip sways and spins of the social dance, so sign up for these dance classes for adults and steal the spotlight the next time you go out dancing at a bar.
