PROFESSIONAL DANCE ROOM SO YOU CAN CHECK OUT YOUR MOVES IN THE MIRROR! 

The space you learn to dance it is essential. The dance room at New Settlement Community Center allows for each student to keep an eye on their form while following the teacher’s steps. Partner work is also a lot more productive when you have a 360-degree perspective. Salsa is one of the most popular social dances in New York nowadays, as there are plenty of Latin clubs and plenty of great Latin dancers! The cutting edge of development for Salsa music is in NYC and Florida, both areas with large Latin communities. Salsa works on the basics of Mambo – a pattern of six steps danced over eight counts of music. At the New Settlement Community Center, we call it Salsa if the pattern of steps begin on the “one” beat of the music, and Mambo if it starts on the “two” beat. Salsa is a more contemporary name for the same step pattern and came about when dancers started mixing up Mambo with Hustle steps.
