Dance to Lose Weight


WAPT in Jackson included Salsa Mississippi in a special on dance and fitness in the state.


“The smooth moves of the dancers at the Salsa Mississippi Dance Studio in Fondren may look easy, but dancers said that a salsa workout is better than the gym.


“‘It works your legs, your arms, places you didn’t even know it would work,’ dancer Joe Spencer said.


“’When you dance with a partner, you are constantly moving. You are sweating. Your heart rate is racing and you are having fun,’ instructor Sujan Ghimire said.”

More about Salsa Mississippi

“Salsa—or salsaaaaa as it should be said (and loudly, too)—means “sauce” in Spanish. The word has become associated with a style of music and dance with a racy uptempo and a sexy, spicy attitude.
