It is exciting to see salsa being incorporated into mainstream shows about dancing. DWTS has featured mambo in the past, but this season the stars will be attempting salsa as well. Tonight half of the stars did quickstep, and the other half danced salsa. While the judges declared Melissa and Tony's dance "the salsa of the night", my personal favorite was Shawn Johnson (USA Gymnast) with her partner, Mark Ballas. I found Shawn and Mark's dance to be the most faithful to the salsa dance genre with great style to top it off.
I encourage everyone in the salsa community to check out the show on Mondays 8/7c and Tuesdays 9/8c on ABC, and share your opinions in the comments below!
