So what is Salsa dancing all about?
The term "Salsa" is the Spanish word for sauce. Like any sauce it consists of many flavours and ingredients. Salsa dancing has its origins in Africa & Cuba other influences were later fused and the comercial name "Salsa" was used to gel all these different styles together. There are many regional styles also however In the UK we tend to concentrate on the following styles:
New York Style Salsa is where partners swap positions in a straight line using a Cross Body Lead. This can be danced On1 or On2 (Mambo) and has more emphasis on shines (solo footwork)
Cuban Style Salsa is where partners travel around each other in a circular motion. Another form of cuban style is "La Rueda" meaning the wheel can also be danced in a group.
Other Latin dance styles
In the last few years ‘Bachata’ from the Dominican Republic has grown in popularity around the world as it is easy to learn & quite sexy!
The Cha Cha Cha is danced on On2 but in the salsa world (as opposed to the ballroom) is danced in a more relaxed fashion.
We run courses in all styles but specialize mainly in New York style On1& On2. We look forward to you joining us.
