Dance and Music from a cuban origin!

What is Salsa?

Salsa is a romantic dance, originating from cubans.

It is a partner dance where the man leads and the woman follows

The music has 4 beats per measure but the dancers only take steps on 3 of the beats pausing for one beat. This is often confusing for beginners

You could count it like step, step, step, pause or some people say "quick, quick, slow"

The dance includes both turn patterns as well as moments where the couple may separate and dance apart for a short time before retuning to dance together.

The hips of the dancers, both man and woman, are always moving.

Who's big in the salsa music industry?

I'd recommend listening to Marc Anthony as well as Tito Puente and Celia cruz!
