Learn how to Salsa with Elite Ballroom Dance Academy in Celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month

Did you know that September 15th to October 15th is National Hispanic Heritage Month?!

Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanic Americans. These are the American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, Central America, South America and the Caribbean.

Within this thirty-day period, there are many celebrations. Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence on September 15th. Mexico’s Independence Day is on September 16th and Chile’s is on September 18th.

Hispanic Heritage Month gives us the chance to celebrate the cultures that shape Hispanic people across the United States’ national experience and identity.

When we think of the things that shape each unique culture, dance is usually near the top of our list.
