SALSArobics® is aerobic exercise that incorporates the steps to popular Latin dances such as Salsa, Cumbia, Mambo, Merengue and more. For those new to tropical Latin and Caribbean rhythms, SALSArobics provides an opportunity to learn Latin dancing while exercising. For experienced Latin dancers, SALSArobics is an appealing alternative to conventional aerobic exercise. SALSArobics is the Latin dance party that delivers a whole-body workout.
SALSArobics classes are low-impact, ranging from low to high intensity. A typical class consists of a warm-up, which includes dynamic stretching, a cardiovascular segment, a strength training segment and a cool down segment. Proper postural alignment, safe dynamic range of motion, and Latin flair are emphasized throughout the class. The music includes rhythms originating from Latin American countries to Spain, the Caribbean Islands and Africa. Classes can be varied for groups, including seniors, youth and couples.
