Salsa has become very popular recently, as it can be danced to lively paced music and has a lot of clever moves (not difficult but look very effective!). Though it is similar in style to Rumba (but faster) and Mambo, it is more relaxed so that its hip sways are more subtle and the steps are taken on slightly bent knees. Though it is a partner dance, the steps are mostly done jointly, but with breaks where the man and lady separate to do their own moves (called Shines) before coming together again. Salsa uses 4/4 timing at upwards of 180 beats per minute, with pauses on the 4 and 8 beat. Hint: An easy way to remember the pauses is to count 1-2-3 5-6-7, etc.
