Cuban Salsa with partner is a fun Latin dance that is executed in a circular motion as the couple face each other in intricate patterns of arms and body movement.
The music developed in Cuba from Latin and African influences and the dance style itself takes elements from various sources such as Rumba and 'Son'.
Bachata is a dance full of passion that originated in the Dominican Republic but now danced widely all over the world.
The basics to the dance are two-steps followed by a tap including on the 4th beat. The knees should be flexed so the weight shift/hips can move smoothly.
During partnerwork, the lead can decide whether to perform in open or closed position.
