Latin Dance: Salsa - Culture and Origins

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

Latin Dance: Salsa - Culture and Origins Salsa dance, like the food of the same name, is a mix of a lot of different elements. Its origins trace back to both African and Cuban dance, however over the years moves from other cultures have been mixed in. That is one reason this dance is so popular: Salsa breeds creativity and exploration. It started out as an underground dance, and in fact was once called the mambo. While it is possible to Salsa dance alone, it is most fun with a partner. In this video, WatchMojo.com visits San Tropez Dance School to speak with dancer and Salsa specialist Sonia Kyriacou to learn about how she got into this style and about the origins of this dance.
