Salsa is generally associated with salsa music, but it may be danced to other types of music. Besides the well-known partnering form, there is a line dance form "Salsa suelta" and a round dance form "Rueda de Casino" where multiple couples exchange partners in a circle. Salsa can be improvised or performed with a set routine.
This is a very energetic Latin dance complete with spins, sharp movement, and crisp turns. It is very popular in Latin clubs along with Bachata & Merengue. Salsa styles vary; we teach the “on-one” L.A. style in our Wednesday "Latin Dance" class, 7:30-8:30 p.m. We also co-teach the Friday night "Salsa at Six" class at Redwood Raks World Dance Studio in Arcata.
