Salsa Dancing for Couples

Salsa Dancing is a great activity for couples! I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing couples fall in love with each other all over again while learning Salsa. It is a beautiful thing to see a couple come together, be excited, work together and start to move and flow and have fun together. Whether you are in a brand new relationship or have been together for a while, here are three reasons Salsa dancing is a great way to spice things up.

Date Night

Salsa dancing is amazing for couples because it’s a way to commit to each other on a week-to-week basis, and make it a date night. Everyone these days is super busy and distracted. We are on our phones even while having a meal together or watching TV and not really talking. But if you are taking a Salsa class together there are no distractions and you can reconnect. Once a week, you have an hour together with no phone, no tv, no work, no kids, no commitments to anyone but each other. Couples are always leaving with big smiles on their faces at the end of class.

You Can Take Your Salsa Skills Anywhere

Salsa dancing is great for couples because you can do it anywhere in the world. You can find a Latin club in almost any country in the world. From Russia to Italy to Greece to China to Korea, to the Philippines…the list goes on and this isn’t a geography class. So you can take my word for it, it’s a skill that pays off for any couple. So take those trips together and practice your new found Salsa skills in other cities.


We can all forget the importance of verbal and nonverbal communication. In Salsa dancing, there is a leader and there’s a follower. The leader leads the movements, the follower receives the instructions and follows through. You have to communicate with your partner as your dancing. It is amazing to see couples communication strengthen as they progress through Salsa classes.

Leaders must not only tell a partner what to do but be gentle and attentive. Followers are great listeners. They have to be present, to see and feel the cues that the leader is giving. Communication only gets better as you practice and Salsa dancing is a great way for couples’ communication to get better.

There are so many more benefits to Salsa Dancing for couples but quality time together for a date night, transferable skills and better communication sound like great reasons to start. Plus it is just an easy way to add fun into your relationship. Salsa is fun, energetic, sexy and playful.

It’s a great gift to give to yourself and to your partner. So, YES, take salsa dancing as a couple.
