History: Although it is a wildly popular dance today, the history of Salsa's development is unclear. Salsa began defining itself in the 1950's from Caribbean roots, comprised of a mixture of Cuban dance forms.

How it works: Salsa is a partnered dance performed on a slot, comprised of linear and circular patterns. Basics span eight beats, and follow a forward and backwards exchange of motion. Salsa is danced in open and closed position to lively music, with room for breakaways and tricks. There are many regional styles from New York to Colombia; and the dance is sometimes done with multiple sets of partners as in a Casino Rueda.

Why you should dance Salsa: With the playful, interactive style of lead-follow in Salsa, there is a lot of room for interpretation and invention. Since Salsa boasts a wide diversity of styles, you'll never get bored learning each detail for the dance!
