Salsa Steps toward Intercultural Education
McMains, Juliet
Journal of Dance Education, v16 n1 p27-30 2016
Arguably the world's most popular partnered social dance form, salsa attracts devotees far beyond the Latino communities in which this pungent "sauce" was brewed. The cross-cultural appeal of salsa, which celebrates its mixed origins in the Caribbean and Spanish Harlem, makes it a prime candidate for inclusion in university dance curricula. Juliet McMains has been teaching salsa in university dance departments since 1999. In this article, she shares pedagogical strategies she has developed over 15 years in hopes that they can be of use to other educators striving to address recent calls to decolonize dance curricula (McCarthy-Brown 2014).
