One of the best parts about Latin Dance…the incredible MUSIC!

If you want to practice your moves at home but aren’t sure where to start, here are a few of our favorite songs that you can use for practicing.

If you’re on Spotify, check out our curated Salsa Music playlist or use the Slow Salsa Songs for Beginners by DJ Maxx playlist that is on a heavy rotation in classes. We also like this Sensual Bachata playlist and just incredible Salsa, Cha-Cha and Latin jazz music from this Mambo Salsa On 2 playlist, both by other Spotify users.

You can find tons of music on other platforms including Youtube, Amazon, iTunes, Soundcloud and more.

Here are some suggestions to get you started:
