    Cuban Salsa

    (1)
    Swaying hips, tantalizing steps, and an overwhelming sense of sensuality make up the essence of salsa. It's quick, steamy, and sexy. Salsa is a dance form with origins from the Cuban Son (circa 1920s) and Afro-Cuban dance (specifically Afro-Cuban rumba). It is generally associated with the salsa music style, although it may be danced under other types of tropical music. Salsa is normally a partner dance, although there are forms such as a line dance form "Salsa suelta," where the dancers dance individually and a round dance form, "Rueda de Casino," where multiple couples exchange partners in a circle. Salsa can be improvised or performed with a set routine. Now, are you ready to become the stud at the club?
