This dance workout, which takes its name from a combination of Salsa and Sensation, incorporates functional body movements and innovative dance moves.
Participants move their bodies to mostly Latin or popular music. It was created by dancer and choreographer Alejandro Angulo, who is from Venezuela.
Ms Angela Aiken, a part-time fitness instructor, first tried it a few years ago when she was in the United States. She liked the workout as it combines dance and fitness moves, and started teaching it in April this year.
Systems analyst Low Ting Ting, who has been going to the Salsation class at Rasa Fitness, a dance and fitness studio at Peninsula Shopping Centre, thoroughly enjoys it as she loves Latin music.
“The moves are challenging but Angela manages to get us to do them well,” she said. “She’s very passionate about it and that makes me love the workout even more.”
Salsation classes will also be available at Tampines Sports Centre from Friday and Clementi Sports Centre from Aug 14.
