Food for thought, Salsa and Black lives Matter!

Hey Everyone,

This email is a friendly little reminder I wanted to send out as a person in the profession of being a Salsa Dancer and Instructor.

Whether you participate in Salsa dance as a hobby, past time, distraction, form of exercise and/ or passion, this activity you and I hold dear comes from African Caribbean history and culture.

Salsa dancing has evolved into a world wide dance phenomenon with different meanings than the original Yorba Tribes in Cuba, Santeria or Bomba from Puerto Rico. Still, the dance you love to do or have pursued interest in learning has deep African Roots and Influence.

So I would like everyone to take a second to think about that and appreciate a culture you embrace. Ask yourself: What have I done, or can I do extra this week and the weeks beyond in someway to help reflect that appreciation in your support of a group of people and part of someone’s culture you have joy practicing.

Here’s just a few things you can do besides march, if that’s not your lane.
