For Salsa dance lessons in Houston, the professionals at Dancing City are here for you! The Salsa evolved in Cuba from a combination of Latin and Afro-Caribbean influences and includes stylistic elements from other Latin dances such as the Cha Cha and the Mambo. It was given its name in New York in the 1970s when it reached its popularity peak in America due to the influx of Dominican and Puerto Rican immigrants.
Salsa places a heavy emphasis on fast feet, side-to-side motions, and smooth movements. Each bar of salsa music is made of 4 beats, and six steps are danced over 8 counts of measure; however, Salsa choreography is drastically different all over the world, some placing more emphasis on lifts and stunts as opposed to rapid footwork. A few of the distinct styles include: New York style, Puerto Rican style, Miami style, Casino style, and West African style.
