Right now, this one and everybody is really into. So I think you are going to have a lot of fun watching it and learning it. Remember, that all of the dances are going to be physical in nature. So you have to train your body to get loose, to get feel stretched and ready to do some of the moves that we are going to do. It is not very hard to get in shape and to loosen yourself up but remember to do that. Next thing we are going to do is just the basic components of salsa, so you get a basic idea of how to move and then we will go from there.
