Salsa Salsa
Salsa "Salsa was an unmistakable product of the Pan-Caribbean experience: salsa musicians were mostly Puerto Rican, its rhythms were principally Cuban, and its social context was primarily the Latino barrios of New York City." ― Deborah Pacini Hernandez

Salsa Dance Style & Trends

When temperatures rise on the dance floor, the spicy rhythms of salsa music heat up the atmosphere. Salsa dancing hails from the traditions of multiple cultures and is popular throughout the world. The use of the word salsa originates from a 1933 song by composer Ignacio Pinerio. The title, "Echale Salsita," translates to "spice it up a little."
