The most popular of all the Latin dances, Salsa has evolved through the years from its original form as a combination of several African, Caribbean and Latin rhythm patterns. Closely related to other Latin styles such as the “Cha-Cha” and the Mambo, Salsa prevails as the most practiced form of all Latin street dances that originated in New York City in the 1970’s.
The word “salsa” is a literal translation of the Spanish word for sauce and its designation as the name for the most popular Latin dance can be attributed to the reference to “hot” and spicy connotations. A consistently evolving genre, the Salsa dance technique has taken variable forms of expression that evolved according to unique regional and cultural influences. Common to all forms is its distinctive free and flowing body movements that include spins and shimmies to encourage its characteristic infectious enthusiasm that is always exciting.
