Salsa With Silvia Featured on WUSA9. How We Help The Community Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month 2017.

The Salsa With Silvia Dance Studio is super proud to be a part of so many celebrations honoring Hispanic Heritage Month in 2017 and every year. This year we are doing a big push on visiting schools in the DMV area to help expose kids and youth to Latin Dance. Salsa dancing is a huge part of Hispanic Heritage and it has been through an incredible evolution throughout the years. The genre of Salsa encompasses influences from Cuba, Africa, Spain, Puerto Rico, New York and other parts of the World. As early as the 1920s and 1930s people in Africa and Cuba used what was then the embryo of Salsa music as a form of expression of their hardships, their emotions, and everything they were going through during this period of time. Post World War II the fusion of African, Cuban/Spanish, and Puerto Rican voices like the incredible Hector Lavoe and Ismael Rivera collaborated with the New York music scene and that’s how the term Salsa was born in the 1970s. After that, Salsa became a movement, a revolution that took over the entire World. There isn’t a country in the World where you can’t find a place to Salsa.

We have been very lucky to educate kids and adults in the area on the History of Salsa and show them the vibrant energetic style of dance and music that Salsa is. Here are some of the highlights of our appearances in the community during Hispanic Heritage Month 2017:
