The original party dance!
Salsa is a lively and exciting style of music and dance which typifies popular culture throughout Latin America. It is a fusion of traditional dances and music from Cuba and Puerto Rico with the jazz influence of New York. The Cuban style is still a fusion of these different elements, but has remained closer to its Cuban roots than its more widely spread cousin, Cross Body style.
Although Cuban Salsa has the same timing of footwork as Cross Body Salsa, it has a different feel to it, mainly because partners change positions with each other in a more circular motion, rather than on a line. There are some moves which are similar in both styles, but many which are unique to Cuban style. It is possible to dance Cuban style to any salsa music, but is best suited to dancing with Cuban Salsa music.
Our Cuban Salsa classes run once a fortnight at 7.15pm on Wednesdays. Please note that there is no class for Absolute Beginners – for the fundamentals of salsa we offer our 6-week salsa courses for Absolute Beginners (level 1) as part of our 8.15pm classes.
For more information about class times and our levels please see our Class Overview.
Our wonderful teachers give you expert tuition with heaps of fun & lots of friendly encouragement!
