The salsa dance has a sensual style that brings passion, energy and joy to the dance floor. The Latin dance emerged from the Cuban Son and the Afro-Cuban dance, Rumba. Relative to its popular music style, Salsa is constantly evolving. Modern dance styles are named according to the geographical locations where they begin and are expanded upon. Columbia, Cuban, On Clave, Los Angeles, New York, Puerto Rican and Rueda are some of the famous Salsa styles.
