Share our Passion for Cuban Salsa
Cuban Salsa is natural, flowing and evocative of the Cuban Culture. The rhythm come from the drums of the African slaves mixed with sounds bought by the Spanish invaders. The step has its roots in Africa with its complete connection to the earth. The body movements comes from the Son and tells the story of the Cuban rumba, which can change between being coy, seductive or outright flirtatious! The movements are always measured, just enough to put the message across, but what a message !! There are many types of salsa but Cuban Salsa is the dance that stays closes to the Afro-Cuban Traditions and contains that magic ingredient that you will fall in love with.
