Hailing from Cuba and as hot as the name suggests, salsa is "the most modern
and sexy way to dance with a partner to pulsating tropical rhythms", says
Danza Loca s Simon Fryda.
The popular salsa school, which teaches various styles of the dance from
merengue to casino, does not take bookings -- just show up at the door, and if
you re single your partner will be supplied in classes with between 20 and 100
people all learning to salsa the night away.
"It s a great way to meet people as we change partners every three minutes
and everybody has a positive and encouraging vibe and looks forward to the
social dancing after class," says Simon.
Sloppy dressers beware: don clothes you would wear to a club. For men,
that means a collared shirt, pants and closed shoes, while for women skirts
and heels are preferable. Salsa boosts stamina, flexibility, co-ordination,
rhythm, core stability, balance and muscle tone and, yes, even weight loss.
"Salsa is great for your cardiovascular system, produces endorphins and
is good for the soul," promises Simon.

If a loose interpretation of dance appeals, hip hop might be your thing.
"It is a street culture so the dance style reflects the urban, untutored dance
style applicable to hip hop music," says Sheryl-lee Moroni of The Dance
Workshop, which caters solely for adults in a variety of dance forms and has
been operating for more than 27 years.
Hip hop is just like you see on MTV and includes specialised styles such
as "popping and locking" and "krumping". You don t need a partner but
you do need comfortable track pants or leggings and a T-shirt, and Sheryl-lee
recommends booking ahead for each new term.
There are about 25 people per class and, given the energetic nature of hip
hop, Sheryl-lee says it s suited to the 16-35 age bracket. "Age is not a barrier,
but depending on the level of fitness and preference for music style, it would
normally appeal to a younger adult," she says.
There are eight basic classes and one intermediate to choose from. Hip
hop promotes core strength and aerobic fitness and Sheryl-lee describes it as
inspiring, uplifting and inexpensive compared to other styles. "Not only are
you exercising, but there is a sense of achievement, having learned some basic
dance combinations at the end of each term," she says. "For those wishing to
achieve more, there are also higher levels to work towards."
