Salsa has its roots in the earlier Latin dance styles, such as Cha-Cha and Mambo and was also influenced by other swing dance styles. Salsa dance is a combination of different dance styles, just like the sauce, “salsa,” which is a delicious mixture of various ingredients. Salsa is considered the king of Latin dances and has gained popularity in recent years.
Bachata originated in the rural neighborhoods of Dominican Republic. It is a relaxed dance style that incorporates lots of hips and shoulder movements. With its sultry movements and distinctive music, you are sure to fall in love with this Dominican treasure.
