What is Salsa?

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 may call it, dance and enjoy!
