5 years ago living in Budapest while an Erasmus period I was completely unaware of the world of salsa. I have always loved dancing and at that time I had a lot of free time so I wanted to meet people and have some fun. One day in the way to class I saw a notice on the bulletin board of the university, and with my roommate we signed up for salsa classes in Hungarian. Hardly anyone spoke English, we had no idea of Hungarian and we did not understand anything of what we were told. But with patience, copying the teacher’s steps and following the rhythm of the music we learned something in some way.
