History of the Salsa

Salsa dancing has a rich and varied history, and is one of the most popular dances existing today. With its roots in Puerto Rican music of the 1960s, Salsa is considered the national dance and music of Puerto Rico. Fusing Afro-Cuban beats with vibrant jazz textures, Salsa is a bit like a combination of Mambo and Cha-Cha: high-energy, fast-paced, and extremely enjoyable to dance. Salsa employs quick foot switches and multiple spins and turns, so it’s not only a pleasure to dance, but a joy to watch, as well. Some well-known Salsa dancers include Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz, and Tito Puente.
