Salsa

When it comes to Latin Dances, Salsa and Bachata are the most popular forms that are followed across the world. While Salsa originated in the Caribbean, Bachata comes from the Colombia and Dominican Republic. Both dance forms follow very specific rhythm and beats in their music, where Salsa follows a 123…567 rhythm, Bachata follows a 123&4…567&8 rhythm. In both dance forms, each partner assumes the role of either a leader, who leads the moves, or follower- who follows the leads given by the leader.
Salsa follows two major dancing styles, namely New York style and LA style. Bachata also has various different styles such as original, western traditional, sensual, bachatango etc. Salsa typically includes several turns while bachata requires wavy body movements.
