Savor the Spicy Rhythms of Salsa! 💃🌶️

Salsa is one of the most popular Latin dances worldwide. The term “Salsa” emerged in New York in the 1960s. As a dance, Salsa evolved from the Cuban dance Mambo and incorporates elements of the Latin dances Son and Rumba as well as American dances: Swing, Hustle, and Tap.

Salsa is danced all over the world in many forms. In the United States there are two main styles:

  • Salsa “On 1” (also known as LA style) is when the break step is danced on the first beat of music
  • Salsa “On 2” (also known as New York style) is when the break step is danced on the second beat of music
