SALSA TUTORIAL AND SHOWS
OUR DANCE TEAM AND STUDENTS
SALSA LINE STYLE:
Salsa is a popular form of social dance that originated in New York City with strong influences from Latin America, particularly Puerto Rico, and Cuba. The movements of salsa have origins inCuban Son, Cha-cha-cha, Mambo and other dance forms, and the dance, along with the salsa music, originated in the mid-1970s
L.A. style is very linear. It uses dips and arm styling. L.A. style is very flashy incorporating many flips and dips. L.A. style dancing is a pleasure to watch and a pleasure to dance and is usually danced on 1. The Los Angeles style uses the contemporary mambo basic as well but typically executes this step by breaking forward on count “1”.
SALSA CUBAN STYLE:
The Cuban style (also known as Casino) – The couple is gearing around each other, there is not a fixed line. There are a lot of “knots” with the hands.
is the style that is most like the Salsa done in Cuba, where the dance has its roots. I have heard many say that this style is characterized by a sort of male dominance. (It does seem that some of the moves show off what the men can do.) Cuban style dancers don’t tend to do fast, multiple spins. In addition, the movement of the partners in this style tends to be circular as opposed to linear.
SALSA RUEDA DE CASINO:
Rueda, (which means a wheel in Spanish) is when several couples form a circle and dance Salsa while there is a “leader” telling which preset combination to perform.
This is Just Salsa Cuban steps and style but dancing in a group together.
The couples dance in a circle executing moves called out by a leader. There is a constant changing of partners, which makes it a vivid and joyful spectacle. There are three groups of participants in every Rueda. The caller, who calls out the names of the moves that are to be danced, (He may also use hand signals in a loud club setting together with the call.)
Which Style should I learn first, the Cuban style or the L.A style ?
First you should realize, that these two styles are not that different, they are both salsa and danced on the same rhythm. In a salsa club you can see both styles being danced during the same song, although there are songs which are more suited to each of the styles.
Personally we recommend you start with The Cuban style is more casual and relaxed, the L.A style is more structured and mechanical in the movements. Both styles are beautiful.
For girls, the L.A style is more demanding, because they need to do “Lady Style” and there are also fast spins.
