Salsa Inspired First Dance Song???
Posted: Sep 14, 2009 1:44 PM

Hi Everyone! I thought we had finally decided on our first dance song, Shania Twain's From this Moment, but now we are thinking of changing it. At our first dance lesson we were having a lot of fun with salsa dancing. I would love to find a first dance song that has a salsa-type beat. I need the words to be in English. Does anybody have any recommendations?

Anything by Santana is good for salsa. Our first dance will be to Samba Pa Ti, which is a beautiful samba based instrumental; it has a great beat and 3/4 time. If you're more in to 'pop' type music, Gloria Estafon is also a good choice, and she has numerous salsa, samba, rumba, etc tunes and they are in English. I don't think I spelled her name right btw.

Hope that helped. Kim

Our first dance was Malo-Suavecito. Malo it's the name of the band from the 70's. It's a slow salsa beat song with a beautiful lyric in English. You can find it on You Tube. You can also check if Marc Anthony have salsa songs in English. Good luck!
