What is Salsa?

Danced throughout the world, Salsa is a fun, energetic partner dance that originated in Cuba and is popular at most latin dance parties.  Salsa was born from Spanish and African influences in Cuba and Puerto Rico, and was popularised in the clubs of New York and LA in the 1970s. It has a 3-step weight change pattern and is an engaging and addictive social dance.
