Salsa Dancing – Origin and Definition
Salsa dance has deep Latin roots inspired by various cultures, mainly Cuban and Puerto Rican. This rich cultural background expresses itself clearly as partners move together as one in the Salsa dance. Salsa as we know it today, however, originated later in history than most people realize. The swinging 70’s in popular New York City ushered in the dance we are now familiar with.
While an American origin may be specified, the art of Salsa should be considered a gift from a conglomeration of immigrants in the area. The variations, however, are complicated and widespread. Different masters specialize in different forms of Salsa connected to specific regions and periods of origin. New York, Los Angeles, and Cuban styles are a few of the many expressions available. Each form adds its own beauty and technique to the dance world.
The name Salsa lacks a definitive etymology, but implies spice and variety like its dietary counterpart. Over the years, Salsa has come to be considered one of the more provocative ballroom dances. While associated with a certain Latin persona, proper Salsa dance still maintains strict and precise technical expectations. However, Salsa is very unique in presentation as spontaneous and free. The final version you see on the dance floor at a competition is the result of determination and serious study. Salsa lessons can help you improve, while adding an exciting experience to your week.
