Salsa Academy recognises that salsa’s appeal lies in the very fact that it is a “free” and constantly progressing dance. This is perhaps salsa’s greatest strength. Salseros are free to develop their own techniques, improvise new moves, and introduce their own styles into the dance. No one owns salsa. It belongs to everyone and yet no one. All around the globe, one cannot help but observe the diversity of the dance: LA, Columbian, New York and Cuban are but examples of the myriad of salsa styles. Salsa Academy embraces this and realises in the deepest sense what an asset this is to salsa.
Our vision, therefore, is not to bring in a strict set of rules to regulate the dance, but to bring a sense of order and organisation to it. Through that, we hope the picking up, excelling in, and performing the dance would become far more rewarding and enjoyable than it is right now. Specifically, the Academy has its sights grounded soundly in the professional salsa scene. We believe that by raising the professional understanding and execution of the dance, we would invariably raise its standards and appeal in social circles.
