Exploring Salsa Dance Styles

Exploring Salsa Dance Styles

A variety of salsa dance styles are seen across the globe; all of which hold their own characteristics when it comes to movement, step timing, step patterns, turns, attitude, and style of dress. With Cuban salsa dance styles, this approach is met with an "on 1" or "on 2." A vital element regarding Cuban style is known as the "Cuba step" (or Guapea), which involves the leader completing a backward basic on 1-2-3 and a forward basic on 5-6-7. The follower will also do the same, which results in a mirroring effect of the two dancers. Some Cuban style salsa dancers will also incorporate circling around one another within their routine.

For a flashier salsa dance method, the Los Angeles style dates back to the later part of the 1990s to the early 2000s. Many 90-degree turns are utilized by the dancers, which have often received criticism for putting on more of a show than really dancing. But what do you expect? This is Hollywood we're talking about. Additional salsa styles to note includes: New York (showing directional changes during breaks); On Clave (following the 2-3 or 3-2 pattern of the clave); Puerto Rican; and Rueda, which hails from Havana, Cuba and involves dance pairs within a circle.
