Footwork & Turns
Salsa, as we know it today, originates from New York city. It is said that it is a mix of many latin dances like Mambo, Cuban son, cha cha cha, Guaguancó, cumbia and more. The music is a blend of Cuban, Puerto Rican, Colombian, Dominican and American jazz mixed all in one. Celia Cruz said “echale salsita” in one of her songs and thus the name was born. It has lots of variations worldwide. New York style on 2, L.A style on 1, Cuban style, Colombian style, even Mambo style… Whatever you call it, just dance it and enjoy it!
