Salsa

Salsa is one of the most popular, fun, and addictive dances out of all of the latin dances.  It’s the perfect way to meet new people, while getting your cardio workout.  And because of its popularity, it is so easy to find a place to go and practice your skills every night of the week.
Salsa originated in Cuba and Puerto Rico in the late 1890s. A distillation of many Latin and Afro-Caribbean dances whose movements have roots in the Cuban Son, Cha-Cha, Mambo and other dance forms, the evolution of Salsa was in large part due to this intricate mix of styles.
