Salsa Dancing 101: The Armentality way


We all face moments of uncertainty in our lives and the times we most often feel this paralysis is right before we make the leap into something new. So I’m hear to say, “Make a leap because it is good for the soul.”

And that is exactly what I am encouraging you to consider this week, right as we start our weekend.  

On Thursday night, you have an opportunity to add a few new moves to your dance floor repertoire as the Armentality Movement Arts Center invites folks to attend its Salsa Dancing 101 class. 

Salsa, with a history stretching way back to the 19th Century, is a mix of different cultural moves rooted in the Caribbean region. From this humble start it gave birth to the dance forms of Son, Son Montuno, cha cha cha, Mambo, and Puerto Rican bomba and plena.

Your teacher for this introductory Salsa 101 class is Laura Amenta, a dance instructor who is sure to get even the stodgiest of non-dancers up on the floor. 

Amenta reminds us that previous dance experience is not necessary. She encourages you to bring a friend or just arrive solo for the class. Either way is fine, since I know from personal experience with Amenta that she has one of the most loving and encouraging souls I have encountered in this city. 

Cost is just $35 but the ability to learn some sweet new moves that you can bust out on the dance floor is truly priceless.
