Salsa originates from Cuba, Salsa is way of socializing for the Cubans after a hard days work.
Salsa is danced more in a circular fashion especially in large groups, which is called as Rueda, Here there is one Caller who calls out the steps and others in the circle need to follow. The Man who is Leader in each couple listens to the caller who calls out the names and leads his partner, the girl who follows her leader in stylish ways of hips and hand actions. The spanish counts to dance on is the “un dos trescincoseisciente” in English means 123 567
The Americans learnt the skills of salsa and popularized it around the world in 2 major style variations the LA Style and the NY Style. LA Style breaks on count 1 while the NY style breaks on 2. They changed the circular motion to a linear line of dance action where the follower travels in a straight line and not in cylindrical circular motion like the Cubans. The basic steps of salsa include the forward and back basic, side basics, cross body and right and left turns advancing into the inside and outside turns while doing cross body actions which further advances into complicated hand and turns combinations which are endless.
