Salsa is the Spanish word for "sauce" denoting a spicy, hot flavor. It is difficult to pinpoint who invented Salsa. Some say that it originated from the African music that the slaves brought to Cuba and introduced into the culture. Today's Salsa is the result of many years of rhythmical evolution due to economical social and political change. It is the official national music and dance of Puerto Rico.

Salsa is the unique blending of traditional Latin dance steps with the freedom and turning actions of Swing and Hustle. A true nightclub dance that fits on crowded dance floors, Salsa is a must for Latin social dancing today.

Salsa's fusion of an Afro-Caribbean beat with enhanced jazz textures results in an aggressive high-energy pulse that has become popular everywhere. Many of the patterns of Salsa are similar to those in Merengue and Cha Cha.
