Salsa is a dance that traces its origins from the Cuban Son of 1920s and Afro-Cuban dance. It is often associated with the salsa music style even if it may be danced under other types of music as long as it is with an 8-count rhythm.
There are many styles of Salsa dancing. It is characterized with the dancer changing weight by stepping with the upper body unaffected by the weight changes. The weight shifts cause the hips to move as the arm and shoulder movements are incorporated. The Cuban Casino style of dancing involves movements of the waist, up and down shoulder movements and shifting of the ribcage. Hand signals also play a huge part in the choreography of each dance.
Salsa dances are often held in night clubs, ballrooms, restaurants, Cuban bars and outside as part of outdoor festivals. The dance has also become very popular that the rest of the world is infected with the salsa fever. Groups like Salsa Fanatics Entertainment bring the dance and rhythm closer to everyone.
