Cuban Salsa dance line

Nordic Salsa Camp 2021 again this year presents a super dance program with Cuban salsa, son, cha cha cha, rumba, orisha / afro, salsaton, mambo, timba and rueda de casino.

The theme of the year dance program is “Lets Make Magic!” –  Where we will have special focus “the magic moments in the dance – And what magic moments are for you – as well as what can promote the magic moments in the dance  and in life.

Next, we focus on how we can all get better at playing and developing our dance as well as better utilizing the huge potential of the many opportunities offered by Cuban bodily expression, dance styles, moves, characters, flirting and play in dance.

The goal is that we create a vitally vibrating and socially hot and playful dance floor where everyone throws themselves into the dance and gives that gas – where we scrap the performance anxiety and put the dance joy, enjoyment and the right to learn and make mistakes in front
