                                    Madonna “Hang Up” (You may add some Travolta disco arm movement when you are using
                                    this song)

                                    If you like, you can use more traditional salsa music as well.

 

Tips: Don’t have to much distance between the rows, one meter might be enough. Shimmy and shake, flirt and make it HOT and GOOD LUCK!
