Cuban-style salsa, also known as Casino, is a form of salsa dance that originated in Cuba. Dancing Casino is an expression of popular social culture. Reggaeton (Spanish: reguetón [reɣeˈton]) is a music genre which has its roots in Latin and Caribbean music. Its sound derived from the Reggae en Español from Panama. In Puerto Rico, this Spanish Reggae took on different lyrics and instrumentation and came to be known as Reggaeton. Rueda de Casino (Rueda, Salsa Rueda, Salsa Rueda de Casino) is a particular type of Salsa square (in this case 'round') dance. Some people incorrectly call it "Casino Rueda" and "Cuban Salsa." Rueda de Casino was developed in Havana, Cuba in the late 1950s and early 1960s by the group Guaracheros de Regla and one of its main choreographers and creators was Jorge Alfaro from San Miguel del Padrón, a soloist of a comparsa.
