Many of you, who have danced this week, have almost certainly experienced some moments of joy, had our heart rates rise, exercised our smile muscles and made a new connection or two.

Please consider mentioning those benefits to friends, colleagues and family members to bring some joy into their lives as well.

Salsa recipe

New members may be unaware that along with the listing of salsa lessons, courses and events, our news sections are stuffed with articles and advice.

The health section is particularly popular, containing healthy recipes for dancers, unsurprisingly including one for a salsa. Remember, you burn 100’s of calories an hour whilst dancing!
Don’t be tempted to put all those calories back on in a few unhealthy snacks, high in sugar, fat and calories.
Try to have healthy snacks and meals to hand, especially when you know you will be busy or have a long night ahead. This salsa recipe would be perfect to come home to!
