Salsa Craze dances onto a virtual platform

By Emmalyse Brownstein
One of the University’s largest student-run organizations didn’t miss a beat when moving its dance lessons online.

Salsa Craze—the University of Miami’s student-run salsa dancing group—is typically recognized on campus by its booming music and large classes, where a range of instructors teach students and community members. 

This semester, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the group to reimagine its traditional dance class format. Vanessa Rodriguez and Alex Weber, who both serve on the group’s executive board and are salsa instructors, described how this “familia” is still dancing on—virtually. 

With five levels of instruction and more than 300 registered members, all experience levels are welcome. Every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m., you can grab a partner, set up your laptop, and start learning.
