What is Salsa? Salsa is considered the king of Latin dances. It is one of the most popular dance styles in Chicago and is being danced throughout the U.S. The exact origin is unknown but many believe that Salsa dancing began in New York in the mid-1970s. It 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. Read our blog post to learn more about the differences between Latin dance styles, such Bachata, Merengue and Cha-Cha.
