Spanish Genre and Dance


a genre that is based largely on Cuban and Puerto Rican popular dance music. It initially arose in New York City during the 1970s. Salsa is the product of various musical genres including the Cuban son montuno, guaracha, chachachá, mambo, and to a certain extent bolero, and the Puerto Rican bomba and plena. Latin jazz.


The movements of salsa have origins in Cuban Son, Cha-cha-cha, Mambo and other dance forms, and the dance, along with the salsa music. As a dancer shifts their weight by stepping, the upper body remains level and nearly unaffected by the weight changes. Weight shifts cause the hips to move. Arm and shoulder movements are also incorporated. The Cuban Casino style of salsa dancing involves significant movement above the waist, with up-and-down shoulder movements and shifting of the ribcage.


The salsa genre has many great artists such as Marc Anthony, Luis Enrique, Elvis Crespo, Celia Cruz, Hector Lavoe, Oscar D'leon,and Ruben Blades
