I Love Salsa have been teaching Latin Dance and Fitness as part of the PE Curriculum for 6 years. The I Love Salsa in Schools programme inspires young people not interested in sport to engage in exercise, increase fitness and tackle obesity. It also increases self-esteem, social skills and respect for others while developing memory function, social cohesion; and encourages boys to take part in dance.
“I am so glad I contacted I Love Salsa to come into our school; it has had a long lasting inspirational impact on motivation, well-being and achievement for our students.” Foulla Dakis, Southgate School
Salsa dance lessons are taught by highly experienced and qualified dance teachers using a structured syllabus giving pupils the opportunity to express themselves through dance and physical activity as part of the PE curriculum. The I Love Salsa in Schools programme promotes diversity and cultural inclusion by encouraging understanding and respect between different cultures and celebrates their differences. Pupils of all ages can benefit from and experience the positive effects that salsa can have on their lives and physical well being.
The Salsa in Schools sessions encourage students to research the history of Latin culture, before discussing how salsa dance fits in to the rich and diverse culture. As part of the I Love Salsa family, there are many opportunities for individuals and schools to take part in The I Love Salsa Colours of the Rainbow Latin dance competition which takes place at the end of the school year. It is a culmination of all the hard work that students have put in during the year and is a chance to promote cultural diversity and integration between communities and faiths.
