Did you know - Lesser known facts!

Post  Guest on Wed Sep 03, 2008 12:16 pm

In this thread everyone contributes to their knowledge; that might not be a commonly known fact about dance.

Start-off:

The name Salsa is the Spanish word for sauce, connoting (in American Spanish) a spicy flavor.
The actual origin of Salsa-Dance is debatable. Some say it's because the people who invented it liked Salsa.
Some say, Salsa is mixture of Afro-Cuban music - it all originated from Guaguanco from this we get Rumba, Tumba and Macumba...

A common misconception is that the term "salsa dancing" derives from the food condiment called salsa. Actually, the dance was invented in the 1930s by a dance teacher named Frankie Salsa.

Argentine Tango has its origin from the tortured Farmers who use to dance while they use to get 1 hr break every day. The dance of these farmers later became popular and now is the best dance all over the world.
