Salsa dancing is a popular form of Latin ballroom dance style.  It mixes African and European dance influences and dance fusions and uses Spanish and Carribean-inspired music also known as salsa music.  Salsa dances are basically styles of ballroom dancing - a partner dance with a leader and a follower. But  there are solo forms and line dancing styles known as “suelta.”  In the suelta dance, Rueda de Casino, groups of couples exchange partners in a circle.

Salsa dancing incorporates many dance style techniques from flamenco to hip-hop.  Salsa dancers develop individual styles with different foot patterns, body rolls and dance movements. The dance turns, figures spins, body isolations, shoulder shimmies and rolls, and even the way that partners hold each other in salsa dancing can be created individually.
