As Puerto Ricans and Cubans found their way to North America, especially in the Florida and New York State areas, they brought with them their built-in sense of balance and rhythm. That flair, matched with the fabulous authentic Latin music played in the clubs, proved a big hit. Now there is a huge Salsa wave everywhere. There are only a few original Latin American dances. These include Rumba, Son, Samba, Merengue, Cha Cha, and Mambo.
Bachata is a style of social dance originating in the Dominican Republic in the 1960’s. Danced all over the world it continues to evolve being danced to faster music with additional footwork and turns.
The Quickstep is a bright, energetic, happy dance, developed in the 1920’s. A combination of Slow Foxtrot and the Charleston, the fast pace and syncopation make it as much fun to dance as to watch.
Often referred to as “touch dancing”, these are the most used slow dances. They are meant for small dance floors as found in pubs and bars. Recommended for leaders as they will be popular at gatherings as small as the “night out” or the convention dinner dance.
Whether you are a social dancer or a competitor, a beginner or a more experienced performer, you’ll find a warm welcome and exceptional instruction at Fusion Dance & Wellness.
