BOOGALOO @ Joel Salsa

Join me for this fun & funky 4 week Boogaloo and Cha Cha course at Joel Salsa Studio in NYC!  Boogaloo is a dance that was popularized in the 1960s in NYC.   It is a Latin Funk dance fused with African American rhythms (R&B, doowoop, soul) and Cha Cha and Son.

Because most of the lyrics were in English, this dance appealed to all races and cultures and unified the community.  The mix of  soul and funk coupled with the basic Cha Cha  timing give Boogaloo it’s style.
