What is Salsa?
This is social dancing at its finest, as demonstrated in Latin clubs and at social events. Authentic salsa music is a slower beat, different from mambo and the songs are romantic. Street style dancing is the authentic, informal, lead and follow dance performed in a natural environment. It is not choreographed and does not incorporate poses or routines. It is improvised to the beat of the music, the type of song and your partner. Street style is danced from the heart, the music and for your partner. The most important aspect of street style, is for the woman to follow, no matter who she is dancing with and the man to lead. Always insure that you are an asset to your partner.
