Salsa dance.What is it?

Originated in The Caribbean, Salsa is the most popular social dance form.It is believed to be innovated in the mid 1970s in New York.As it is a social dance form it is commonly popular in night clubs, restaurants, ballrooms and specially a very significant part of outdoor festivals.

In my previous posts I gave information about many modern dance forms, Like belly dance, jazz, hip-hop etc. Now i will be providing information about this popular Social dance Salsa.


It is not only a social dance also it is a passionate couple dance too. A couple while doing salsa is more passionate and intense as compared to other dance forms.Salsa involves the movements and steps of other popular dance forms like Cha-Cha-Cha, Mambo etc also. This dance is complemented by the music known as Salsa music . But it is not necessary to complement this dance with this music only , it can be performed in other musics also.

Moves in Salsa dance.

There are different styles in in this dance form and therefore having different and many improvisational movements.But the most common and main move of all the types of the dancers of this dance form is shifting of the body weight by stepping the upper body remains in the level and in unaffected by the weight changes. This form of dance primarily chooses the music which involves Around 150 to 250 beats per minute. The shift in weight causes the hip move and also it involves the arm and shoulder moves too. The basic rhythm which this dance follows is three steps for every four music beats.


Clothing in Salsa.

This dance form is known for its flexibility and comfort so this is a common thing that the clothes which the dancers wear should be comfortable enough so that they can execute their movements flexibly and clearly.

There are majorly two patterns in the costume, One is regular in which the women wears a skirt and top having simple and slanting layers or a one piece dress, The man wear formals a two piece suit or formal shirts and pants. The other pattern is the professional one in which dresses are designed by lots of thought in terms of the colors, patterns, hairstyles and many more things. Professional dresses are particularly based on the theme of the performance and the major thing which is taken into consideration is that the couple should complement each other.
