Top 5 ways to find your salsa mojo!

So you’re there loving life and loving salsa, when all of a sudden it’s gone. Vanished. You don’t know what, you don’t know when and you don’t know where, but what ever it is it has mambo’d itself into the vast abyss! So here at Salsa Dance Leeds we have come up with our top 5 tips to help you find your salsa mojo!

1. Find a new song

Finding a new song that gets that fire inside you going has always been my number one tip and is a great way to find your mojo! We have some of our favourite songs posted so check them out. If not how about this one?!

2. Find a new friend

Why not find a new friend in the scene? Start chatting to different people at your class or go to different events and meet new people with a passion for salsa. This way you can get a new insight in to salsa and who knows their passion may rub off on you. Salsa buddies yay!

3. Find a new move (or combination)

Find a new move or a combination and just practice practice practice until you feel as though your salsa is back up to scratch. Sometimes a loss of mojo is down to a lack of confidence and a feeling of stagnation. So this is a very good cure temporarily! Why not check out our inspirational dancers post and get some ideas there!

4. Find a new class

So as mentioned in number 2 why not find a new class. Whether it be with your current salsa teacher on a different day or simply go to another class with another teacher. Variety is the spice of life and its always good to learn off as many people as possible. This way you get different perspectives on salsa and who knows this teacher or night maybe the one to reignite the fire within! Plus this way it opens the way to meeting new people. Everyone likes new things!

5. Find a big event

Finally another one that normally always does the trick is go to a big event. Big events with great lineups are a guaranteed way to get you out of slump and help you find your mojo. Don’t know where to go? Ask a teacher or some friends in the scene. If not check online there are loads of sites and pages dedicated to making sure you get to the best events.


If all these fail. Maybe just take a week off!
