Looking to spice up your first dance at your wedding? Many people think of a first dance as a slow waltz or traditional foxtrot, but you can find just as much romance in an untraditional style as well...let’s talk salsa!
Salsa emerged in New York in the 1970s. It was a mix of other popular dances of the time, such as cha cha, mambo and swing. This concoction gave dancers unique rhythms and patterns that became very popular among the social scene.
Although salsa is still a popular social dance, it is generally overlooked when it comes to wedding first dances. However, this is a great style for couples looking to do something unexpected, romantic, and fun! Think you won’t be able to find a romantic salsa song? Check out our list below for some favorites that are perfect for a first salsa dance. We’ve divided our list into the traditional, the new, and the unconventional, so that there’s a Salsa song for everyone!
