Two salsa dancers found an ingenious way to keep dancing while keeping a social distance.
The couple wears face masks and holds a cord in each hand to keep their distance and stay in perfect sync while dancing on the streets thought to be in Madrid.
Journalist Bianca Padró Ocasio posted the video to Twitter on June 29, saying, “Good morning. A friend of mine shared this video of socially distant salsa and that’s how I try to be. To enjoy.’
The pair are holding cords on the street, presumably in Madrid, so they can dance salsa while keeping a social distance
She said the rope they are holding could be a skipping rope or exercise resistance band.
As the pair spins, they both continue to hold the cords and don’t get caught in them.
Social media users have taken to Twitter to admire their skills. One of them said, “I would be wrapped in those cords.”

Another replied, “Packed, tripped and in the gutter. But I’m adding it to my list of safer date suggestions! ‘
A third user said, “That’s great. Please let this become a new dance trend. I wonder if this makes learning easier or more difficult? ‘
Someone else said, “I can’t dance like her, with or without a mask …”
