Salsa

The fact that salsa is by an astronomical stretch, the most popular form of couple dancing in the world is simple to explain: It is incredibly easy to learn, fun to do, it is popular across every continent and it evolves continuously, so it never goes out of style. It has become synonymous with Latin zest for life and remains one of the most accessible ways to learn about Latin-American culture

As the name suggests, this dance is a spicy mix of different Afro-Caribbean-Latino-American ingredients such as mambo, son, guaracha, guaguancó and yambú.

Salsa can be as diverse as the folkloric roots of the different countries that contributed to its evolution.Cuba, Puerto Rico and Colombia were the main contributors at first. Their musical traditions, when dropped into the melting pot of the United States of America’s jazz music scene coalesced into what we know today as Salsa.

Salsa has remained unregulated by any international dance governing organization. All efforts to regulate it have been defeated by the stubborn independence of the salsa teaching community, by the general derision of the dancing public and most importantly, by Salsa’s continuous and irrepressible evolution, which has resulted in multiple styles, such as Cuban Casino, Los Angeles style, New York style and Caleño style.

All of these forms of salsa are in constant evolution, absorbing every day new elements from sources as diverse as argentine tango, swing, hip-hop, ballroom and even ballet-jazz.
