Salsa

Salsa music and salsa dancing are popular all over the world. From tiny venues hidden deep in the rural jungles to huge salsa nightclubs celebrating salsa in cities great and small. Here the music is played and salsa dancers rule the night. The dance patterns and movements vary widely from club to club and city to city, but the same sexy, rhythmic movement unifies them all, and also a love of the music we all refer to as "salsa".
