From mild to medium or even hot, there is no doubt that Salsa Babies® delivers a fantastic way to spice up a fitness routine for “Mamacitas” all over the world. In no time at all, “Salsa Babies®” will have you feeling the Latin groove with your special partner – your baby!
Jennifer Torres developed Salsa Babies® after the birth of her first baby in 2002. Looking for ways to devote time to her newborn and get back to her pre-pregnancy shape, Jennifer was reminded of her passion for Latin dance. “It was hard getting to the gym”, says Torres. “My daughter did not want to be left alone or be put down in her crib. I would put her in the carrier and dance with her.”
Jennifer combined her business savvy ideas and love for the Latin beat to create Salsa Babies®. Developed with the intention of helping other mothers, Salsa Babies® has been embraced by mamacitas who are eager to get their groove back, one cha cha at a time. “Anybody can do it – that’s my goal. Especially with women who have just had a baby; everyone has a different experience,” Torres adds. “I really wanted it to be something everyone could experience and we could adapt to all levels.” Salsa Babies® has also welcomed Maria Dorado as partner and co-owner of the organization. Maria began as a participant and was certified as a Salsa Babies® instructor.
Salsa Babies® offers five different classes. There are prenatal classes called “Salsa Bellies®”, as well as a “Salsa Babies®” program for moms and their infants. Jennifer has also developed “Belly Dancin’ Babies®,” “Salsa Tots®” for young kids and even a school aged program for older children called “Salsa Kids®.” Participating in any class will have everyone grooving to a Latin beat in no time. Jennifer stresses that the theme of each of the classes is to move and have fun while dancing.The programs are developed around a Latin-tropical vibe (think back to your last beach vacay) that promote a low-impact cardio workout from warmup to cool down.
The Latin beat and salsa heat are “mamboing” to a location near you. Salsa Babies is expanding and sharing Latin soul and the joy of motherhood with mamacitas worldwide. With classes in the US, China, United Kingdom, Europe, Indonesia, Australia, and in Canada, the home base for Salsa Babies®, mommy’s and their bundles of joy are transforming their bodies and spirit like never before.
Why not have your child become a true “Salsa Baby” with some salsa-swag? Salsa Babies® offer a line of cute merchandise, including, “Salsa Baby on Board” car decals, adorable clothing selections and even Salsa Babies® music. (There is even a Salsa Babies® DVD which allows a mom to have a private class in the comfort of her own home).
